Should Wineries Be Family Friendly?

I read an interesting article today from the New York Cork Report: Is Wine Tasting a Family-Friendly Endeavor?, written by Tracy Weiss. Tracy does not have children, so at first I expected the article to be coming from an angle of “no kids allowed”, but was pleasantly surprised.  I was even more impressed by all the comments.

You see, I have a three-year old. And unless it is a “date night” or “ladies night”, I usually have my daughter in tow.  Now that I am trying to learn more about the wine industry, I will probably have my daughter with me for a good handful of tastings.

I would like to think that wineries are open to allowing children.  I know that at least for me, a winery that allows my daughter to be present while I do a tasting will leave a better taste in my mouth (and my mind), but I wold be interested to see what others think.
