Every winery should have a faithful wine dog. Here at Paracombe we are fortunate enough
to have two, Lita and Charlie who we affectionately call our ‘wine woofas’.

Lita and Charlie are an amazing breed known as Maremma sheep dogs. As Paul and
Kathy’s loyal family pets they also earn their keep by being the chief meeters and greeters at the winery.

They do other important jobs as well like supervising picking and pruning in the vineyard,
but often they enjoy the good life, lazing around the cellar door.

This large, noble breed has been around for over 2,000 years and is a flock guardian dog. Lita and
Charlie have big, generous hearted personalities to match their size.
