Maggie's vineyards are known for being dog-friendly.

Resident Wine Cave dogs are Moxie and Jet, whom, often, are mingling and socializing with other canines on property. 

Please remember, despite what our dogs tell you, they are well fed. Please do not feed Moxie and Jet.

While we allow people to practice dock jumping for their dogs, please call ahead (540-905-2921), if you wish to be on property during the week,. to make sure we are not planning maintenance or mowing in the area.

NOTE: Animal owners and their dogs are welcome on the vineyard grounds at Maggie Malick Wine Cave. All dogs must be leashed at all times and are the sole responsibility of its owners, during any winery visit.  Thank you!

Chesapeake Dock Dogs

 Chesapeake DockDogs (CDD), the local chapter of the premier canine aquatics competition,  manages Dock Dog competitions at one of Maggie's winery four ponds.

The CDD group built a regulation 40-foot dock for their jumping competitions. 

If your dog is looking to learn dock jumping, try the pond just below the Cave, which features a small dock.  ​

LabFest July 13-14 2019

Lab Fest Weekend is our July fundraiser for Lab Rescue of the LRCP, is a free, family-friendly canine gathering of regional Labrador Retrievers and other friendly dog breeds.   

The nicest dogs bring their humans to the annual LabFest. Dogs can romp and run on the 215-acre estate, and swim in the ponds. (Bring a dog towel and your puppy's favorite toy.) Visitors can soak in the sun and Maggie’s award-winning wines. There are baguettes, charcuterie and cheeses to feed your belly while you feed your soul. Or, pack your own picnic and enjoy it at one of our outdoor tables. (Virginia state law prohibits bringing any outside alcohol.)   

LabFest raised $1,100!

​In case you haven't noticed, dogs are near and dear to Maggie and Mark.

Both winery dogs, Jet and Moxie, are lab rescues. 

That's why we are so grateful the our 2018 LabFest visitors helped us raise nearly $1,100 - more than double our 2017 donation - for LabRescue, from a portion of our winery's LabFest sales. 

 Lab Rescue of the LRCP (Labrador Retriever Club of the Potomac) is a volunteer, nonprofit organization that rescues, fosters and places homeless, abused, and/or abandoned Labrador Retrievers.
