About Us

Smiling Dogs Ranch is one of the newest boutique wineries to be licensed in the County of Lake, Northern California. Nestled beneath the beauty of Mount Konocti, adjacent to the state's oldest natural lake, Clear Lake, is the quaint agricultural town of Kelseyville. Here you will find rich roots of farming and family. Once known as the "Pear Capital of the World" that title is now overshadowed by its growing reputation as one of the country's leading grape growing and wine producing regions. 


Less than an hour away from Napa is this picturesque area that is making its name in the wine industry. Avoid the crowds, buses, and lines. Avoid the big tasting fees, come try Lake County wines that compete with the best in the business.


Smiling Dogs Ranch is pleased to announce its wines are not only consumer friendly but they are produced and generated by 100% Renewable solar /wind energy, bringing to your table beautiful multiple award winning wines. Sauvignon Blancs, Rose, Cabernets, Zinfandels, Merlots and beautiful Bordeaux blends. A wine for every palate!


Come see us at our brand new state of the art Tasting Room in the heart of Kelseyville. We are walking distance to two other tasting rooms as well as a variety of restaurants and stores. 


Scott Simkover is the Owner and Winemaker, if your lucky you may also meet the "Smiling Dogs "....Samoyeds Sophie and Vino!
