"Bark Less, Wag More"
To test out the Underground Cellar system, we ordered some reds from Mutt Lynch Winery - disappointingly, we received 5 bottles of their 2009 Merlot and only one other, the Petite Sirah, but that's the way the system works. Oh well.
Mutt Lynch Winery was born in 1995 combining the owners' mutual passion for wine and “all things dog.” They support local animal rescue organizations in their tireless efforts to save pets’ lives. Nationally, the winery supports North America’s largest pet adoption web service, Adopt-a-Pet.com, whose mission is simple – linking homeless pets with homes.
