More Information

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.

The event features music, a huge 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.
