Feb 18 – New York, NY – The March issue of Wine Spectator magazine is dedicated to… The dogs! At a time when unconditional love and devotion are needed most, the magazine delights its readers with more than a dozen dogs who work and play alongside vineyard owners and serve as ambassadors for the great estates of Sonoma and the Napa Valley. The subject of the question: Bringing a smile and spreading joy. Why not?

This special edition, which is close to my heart, has been around for three years, says Marvin R. Shenken, editor-in-chief and publisher of Wine Spectator. If you have a pet, this question is sure to please you. If you don’t have a pet, we hope we can encourage you to consider adoption.
