Dog friendly wine bar and tasting room opens in Oakhurst

A new wine bar opened last week in Oakhurst, Yosemite Wine Tails, from the owners of Oakhurst Feed & Pet Supply.  The creation of the dog friendly wine bar and tasting room evolved from the owners’ favorite things: dogs, wine and beer.

Every vendor selling wine and beer to Yosemite Wine Tails donates a portion of their sales to a non-profit animal agency.

“Our business model is based on being animal friendly, also we are socially conscious.  We used all reclaimed lumber and everything built was from hired local businesses. Having discovered Crossroads Lumber in North Fork was a true find.  Utilizing and finding a purpose for beetle and drought killed trees was our mission.  Our tables, displays, bar and wall décor are all made from this beautiful wood,” said Colette Goga, owner of Yosemite Wine Tails and Oakhurst Feed & Pet Supply.

The new wine bar, tasting room and private tasting room will serve and offer guests and the local community one of a kind California branded wine and beer that are not found in your local grocery store as well as local snacks and treats. For the canine friend’s, they will offer specialty dog treats such as cookies, cupcakes and a recirculating water fountain.  Although they will have snacks, guests are welcome to bring their own food.

“The new wine bar and tasting room is a great addition to our community and for our visitors and local community.  We are excited that our visitors that come with their dogs have a place to relax over a glass of wine on their trip,” said Therese Williams, Director of Public Relations, Visit Yosemite Madera County.

In the future, the new wine bar and tasting room will offer doggie birthday parties, dog wear and much more.

The wine bar is located at 40409 HWY 41 Oakhurst CA, 93644, 559-641-6400 and is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 6 to 10 p.m.

Visit Yosemite Madera County

The Southern Yosemite Visitors Bureau was formed in 1985. It has been operating at The Yosemite Sierra Visitors Bureau for 30 years.  The Bureau was established by a group from the Eastern Madera County Chamber of Commerce with a vision of the growing potential for drawing the millions of visitors to Yosemite National Park to the many businesses and attractions in Madera County.

Recently the visitor’s bureau changed its name to Visit Yosemite | Madera County to more accurately reflect its mission to promote all there is to see and do in Yosemite and Madera County.
