Black Dog Cellars was inspired by a passion for great wine and born from a vision and dream by Michael Haney after decades of wine travels, developing and fostering wonderful friendships and relationships with some of the worlds greatest winemakers and professionals, and years of personal and professional involvement in the wine industry.

So in 2009, after serving on numerous wine related board of directors and leading America’s original and oldest charity wine auction as Executive Director, Michael decided to use his hard earned savings he had put away for years and pursue his dream and venture into creating his own wine company and label.

Named after his beloved “Black Dogs” Boomer and Zoie, Black Dog Cellars released our very first wine in June 2010. Since that inaugural and memorable release, he has proudly focused on four main varietals. Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Chardonnay and Syrah. In the Spring of 2013 Black Dog Cellars also introduced and released our “sibling label” Black Puppy.

Due to our exclusive and limited production size, we are currently not open to the public for tastings.
