On this week's episode, hosts Jasen Arias & Sylvia Wes chat with Melanie Garibay of Nectar of the Dogs Wine. Inspired by the love of the dogs that changed their lives (and their love of wine!) Melanie and Donna Graves created Nectar of The Dogs Wine in 2015. Today, Melanie continues to drive the company forward with a new team to carry on the NOTDW mission of sharing the love of dogs and wine! The wine labels feature their fur babies who have passed on to the “Rainbow Bridge” and this wine company was created to honor their memory. Their mission is to continue to spread the joy and love dogs bring to our lives by helping those in need find their “fur-ever family!” IT'S NOT REALLY DRINKING ALONE IF YOUR DOG IS WITH YOU!
