New Orleans, Louisiana and Lodi, California, September 2019 — Effective September 2019 Rescue Dog Wines will be distributed in Louisiana by Bizou Wines, based in New Orleans. “We’re honored to represent Rescue Dog Wines, with its lively labels and simply delicious, well-made wines,” said James Moises, the owner of Bizou Wines.

Bizou will be carrying four wines: 2018 Rosé, Predominantly Poodle Sauvignon Blanc, Bubbly Boxer Sparkling Rosé and Beloved Mixed Red, Red Wine Blend. The wines are crafted by winemaker Susana Rodriguez Vasquez and Eric Donaldson with grapes grown according to Lodi Rules protocols in Lodi, California.

Rescue Dog Wines was founded in 2017 by Blair and Laura Lott. The Lotts donate 50% of their profits to rescue dog organizations across the country. On National Dog Day (August 26), the winery did a joint program with Hotel Milo in Santa Barbara, California.  Dogs were welcomed with treats and gifts, and owners with choices of the Rescue Dog wines. “This type of collaborative effort brings us great joy,” comment Blair and Laura Lott, who have participated in dog rescue related events including the Sacramento SPCA Fall Gala, Friends of the Alameda (California) Animal Shelter, the Lodi PALS (People Assisting Lodi Shelter), Los Angeles Found Animals Foundation, The Rescue Dog Runway Show in Los Angeles and the English Bulldog Rescue Bully Ball in Atlanta.
