J Vineyards & Winery’s splendid visitor center near Healdsburg went to the dogs on a glowing autumnal Saturday, and it was a good thing.

The occasion was Pinot for Paws, the inventive pairing of tastings of J Pinot Noirs and encounters with the life-enhancing work of Canine Companions for Independence, the Santa Rosa-based organization that pioneered the training of service dogs for people with disabilities.

Visitors to J on Nov. 30 witnessed the remarkable and myriad ways that a helpful dog can enable and enrich a person’s life. In addition to introducing its patrons to CCI, J donated to the organization a portion of the day’s tasting fees and Pinot Noir sales.

The special day has J thinking it might introduce a Yappy Hour.
