Combining great wine, fine art, special dogs and worthy canine-related causes is what Cru Vin Dogs is all about. All wines in our portfolio are carefully handcrafted, using only the finest fruit from the world’s very best wine growing regions.
Because dogs play such important roles in our lives, we donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of our wines to dog-related charities. We support canine service organizations, animal shelters and groups dedicated to dog rescue. Read more...

Each release features an original graphite pencil or pastel pencil drawing of a different breed of dog by Colorado Artist Jay P. Snellgrove. When the wine is gone the label is retired and will never be used again, thus making these drawings highly collectable. Limited Edition Giclee Prints signed by the artist will be made available first to our wine club and mailing list members, and then to the general public.
The wines in our Puppy, Portrait, and Best In Show series are special releases which are specifically designed to fit the label with the wine. Because of this, when a wine sells out the label is retired and the wine is gone forever. Below you will see our current wines, as well as the labels from our retired wines – previous vintages that are no longer available. When a wine is close to retiring, we will do our very best to let you know through email, Facebook posts, and website updates. Please keep this in mind when ordering wine, we don’t want you to miss out on your favorites!
THE LOYAL COMPANION is dedicated to helping local animal shelters and rescue groups find homes for our devoted and faithful friends. The blends consist of wines our eco-passionate winemaker, Tony Wasowicz, has made along with small lots we’ve sourced from prestigious vineyards and good friends we’ve known over the years. Our goal is to produce exceptional quality wines that far exceed the price point.

Outstanding red varietal blends capable of extended aging, yet very enjoyable upon release. Each release honors a real dog with a special story.
