The Grapehound Wine Tour® seeks to heighten regional awareness of greyhound adoption, increase the number of adoptive and foster homes for sighthounds, and raise funds for regional 501(c)3 approved adoption groups to carry on their work.  You may see this year's schedule on our Schedule page.  

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, fairly level walk to 215 foot Taughannock Falls on Sunday morning.

All funds raised by The Grapehound Wine Tour, Inc. are used to pay costs for our events and the remainder donated to 501(c)3 registered greyhound adoption groups throughout the region.  See the list of greyhound groups which 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 own 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.  


This is our twelfth year in the Finger Lakes.  Over the years, our event has contributed tens of thousands of dollars to greyhound adoption groups and public dog shelters in the region.  By enjoying a really fun wine tasting event in a part of New York State filled with lakes and waterfalls, you allow us to help greyhounds and other sighthounds.
