Almost exactly a year ago, on a trip to Healdsburg, we told you about one of the newer tasting rooms in downtown Healdsburg, Topel Winery . (See Larry’s post on Healdsburg Tasting Rooms .) Some good wines, and especially good values for the wines. One other item about Topel is that they’ve started an annual Shoot Your Dog contest, publishing a calendar to benefit the Healdsburg Animal Shelter.
Wine and dogs combine two of our passions, and hopefully yours as well. And we’re big supporters of the shelters. We found Elmer Fudd, our current mutt (pictured here as a puppy 4 1/2 years ago), at the Santa Cruz SPCA. The Shoot Your Dog contest closes the end of this month, so get your entries in asap.
