The Grapehound Wine Toursm

July 20-23, 2023

About The Grapehound Wine Tour, Inc.    The Grapehound Wine Tour, Inc. is an IRS approved and registered 501(c)3 non-profit corporation which raises funds to donate to greyhound adoption groups.   ​We manage two nationally acclaimed greyhound events:   The Grapehound Wine Toursm event held each July in the Finger Lakes of New York, and the Greyhounds Reach the Beach® event held each October near Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.   A third event, Winter Houndssm, was added to our events recently.   You may learn more about Greyhounds Reach the Beach® here:

The Grapehound Wine Toursm 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 event schedule on our Schedule page.  

The Grapehound Wine Toursm features music, tents with vendors from many states, a Welcome event with wine and music, 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 tumbler for all who register.  The event also features a scenic, fairly level walk to scenic 215 foot tall Taughannock Falls on Sunday morning.

All funds raised by The Grapehound Wine Tour, Inc. are used to pay the costs for our event and the remainder donated to 501(c)3 registered greyhound adoption groups throughout the country.  We do not adopt dogs.  We raise money and give it to the people who are doing the hard work of adoption.

The Grapehound Wine Toursm is a six-day wine-tasting celebration of greyhound adoption held every July at Seneca Lake, New York, near Watkins Glen.  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.  

​Registration is now open!

This year will be our seventeenth 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.  We donate to the Schuyler County Humane Society in Montour Falls, NY, every summer to help local animals.  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.
