Wednesday, September 16, 2020 2:00 PM

Family owned and operated by Orange County-based Carter Hospitality Group, wine and hospitality award-winning South Coast Winery Resort & Spa and Carter Estate Winery and Resort – both located in Temecula, introduce Happy Hound, a program bound to delight wine lovers and their pampered pooch pals alike.

At a time when pet ownership has increased during the pandemic, many are eager to include their favorite furry buddies in their activities. And with an increase in road trips to exciting retreats, the Carter Hospitality Happy Hound program encourages guests to forget about dog sitters and bring along their four-legged friends to enjoy a wonderful winery resort experience together.

Just for canine guests, Happy Hound features a welcoming sWag Bag at check-in, along with a charming welcome card from the resort. The Happy Hound sWag Bag includes complimentary goodies – a spiffy dog bandana, yummy dog treats and doggie pick-up bags. For the length of the stay, the resort provides food and water bowls, a pet blanket and a “Happy Hound In Room” door sign.

In addition, both South Coast and Carter Estate resorts feature private villas situated among vineyards, and each has large grassy areas for dog walking, relief stations and nearby pet parks. Guest services can recommend pet-friendly activities in the vicinity.

For human pleasures there are bike rentals, hot-air ballooning, horseback riding and other outdoor activities. At both resorts, the main attraction is unwinding amidst the vineyards while sipping some of the 60 different wines shared among the two wineries, wines which have won over 3,000 awards nationally and internationally. Also, GrapeSeed Spa is available for outdoor pampering and special dining enticements include The Vineyard Rose Restaurant at South Coast Winery Resort & Spa and The Vineyard Grill at Carter Estate Winery.

The Carter Care plan is implemented to ensure health and safety – requiring guests and employees to wear face coverings in public spaces with social distancing also a requirement. There are hand sanitizing stations and hospital-grade disinfectants used throughout the properties, and additional protocol protections are required of employees.
