The Grapehound Wine Tour®

July 21-24, 2016

The Grapehound Wine Tour® features music, a huge wedding tent with vendors from many states, a Welcome event with wine and hors d'oeuvres, delicious food from constantly changing local food vendors, a silent auction, a Blessing of the Hounds, an ice cream social, wine tasting, a huge social tent for just sitting and relaxing, and a commemorative greyhound wine glass for all registrants.  The event also features a scenic walk to 215 foot Taughannock Falls on Sunday (This year the walk will take place on Saturday at 9AM.)

All funds raised by The Grapehound Wine Tour® are used to pay costs and then the remainder donated to 501(c)3 registered greyhound adoption groups throughout the region.  See the list of greyhound groups who have benefited from our event.

The Grapehound Wine Tour®  is a four-day wine-tasting celebration of greyhound adoption held at Seneca Lake, New York, near Watkins Glen, every July.  All well-behaved sighthounds are welcome.  You do not have to drink wine or to have a greyhound to attend.  

This event is set up for greyhound people to spend time relaxing and enjoying the area.  Browse our photos and you'll see it's a low-key weekend with lots of time for relaxing with your greyhound.  

Over the ten years that we have held this event in the Finger Lakes, we have contributed tens of thousands of dollars to greyhound adoption groups and public dog shelters in the region. Your participation helps us help greyhounds and other sighthounds.
