#Winesday: Wine’s Best Friend

Vito the Dog

June 23rd is Take Your Dog to Work Day!

As if wine and work wasn’t already the greatest combination imaginable, at Bright Cellars HQ, every day is Take Your Dog to Work Day. This got us thinking…If our dogs were bottles of wine, what would they be? Well, a few glasses of vino and several puppy kisses later, we’ve got the answers:

Ghost the Dog

Bright Cellars Owner: Christian

Wine: Pana Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Like a bold and tannic Cabernet Sauvignon, Ghost can take a few      minutes to open up. But, with a little breathing room and patience, he’ll begin to soften. You’ll learn to love and appreciate his complex and charismatic character. 

Vito the Dog

Bright Cellars Owner: Hillary

Wine: Burrasca Syrah 2015

Vito is a smooth little man with a robust personality. Just as Italian Syrah is equal parts spicy and fruity, this pup is sweet like plums and piccante as a pepper. When you first taste Syrah, you’ll be greeted with a bold punch of flavor. When you first meet Vito, you’ll be greeted with a bold kiss on the mouth.


Bradley the Dog

Bright Cellars Owner: Katie

Wine: Porta D’oro Pinot Grigio 2015

Pinot Grigio is often considered a white wine wild card. Depending on the region in which it’s grown, the wine can range from semi-sweet to bone-dry. Bradley is the sweetest and sassiest girl in the bunch! We never know which Bradley we’re going to get, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Flora the Dog

Bright Cellars Owner: Courtney

Wine: Mojave Rain Zinfandel 2015

Flora is a BIG girl with a bold personality! Like a jammy zin, she can be quite strong (Can you blame her? she’s not even one and she’s 75 pounds!), but we love her fruity personality and endless amounts of character.

Kona the Dog

Bright Cellars Owner: Kassie

Wine: Folk & Fable Red Blend 2015

In winemaking, blending is used to enhance the texture, color, and structure of a wine. Just as a California Red Blend highlights the tastiest qualities of each of its grapes, this darling office mutt, Kona, brings out only the best of all of her many breeds.

Jackson the Dog

Bright Cellars Owner: Brooke

Wine: White Willow Verdelho 2016

Jackson is a zippy little spitfire with the most endearing personality. Verdelho is light, zesty, and bright, just like this precious pooch. We’re equally intrigued by its nectarine and kiwi notes as we are Jackson’s adorable snaggletooth.

Biscuit the Dog

Bright Cellars Owner: Dave

Wine: Forty Winks White Blend

Much like a sweet Gewürztraminer – Chenin-Blanc blend, Biscuit is half amazing, half terrific. Her playful and adventurous spirit is balanced by her inquisitively curious intellect. And check out those beautiful golden hues!

Sasja the Dog

Bright Cellars Owner: Sam

Wine: La Cueca Merlot 2016

Sasja is a gentle, well-rounded, girl that is sweet like blackberries and smooth like cocoa. Just like a perfectly balanced Merlot, she is easily enjoyed by all. (She also brushes her teeth every night before bed…which has nothing to do with wine, but is very, very cute.)

Bru the Dog

Bright Cellars Owner: Forest

Wine: Obscura Petite Sirah 2016

This guy’s name may hint at the Milwaukee brew scene, but his demeanor is straight up Petite Sirah!  Just like Bru’s bold bark, Petite Sirah hits you with ripe and jammy fruits at first sip. As it opens up, you’ll notice softer notes of rose petals and cocoa, much like his sweet-tempered snuggles.

Nelly & Rossi
Nelli and Rossi the Dogs

Bright Cellars Owner: Tiff

Wine: White Willow Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

These sisters go together like Cabernet and Shiraz! Nelly’s lovable, snuggly demeanor is the perfect mix for Rossi’s sassy and striking smarts. While they are individually unique and adored, together, they make an ideal combo.
