The Grapehound Wine Toursm will be held from July 19 to July 24 2022.


Advance registration is open.




The Grapehound Wine Toursm is a week-long event for greyhound and sighthound owners.  Your well-behaved sighthounds may accompany you at all wineries, distilleries and brew pubs.  The official schedule runs from Thursday (7/21) to Sunday (7/24).  People may also sign up as an "Early Bird" and arrive early at Prejean Winery on Tuesday or Wednesday, or during the day on Thursday, before the event officially begins on Thursday evening, July 21.


At 5PM Thursday (7/21) registration and Check-In moves to Hazlitt 1851 Vineyards.  


The cost to register is $31 ($35 at the door) and this covers your tasting glass, your booklet which directs you to various wineries, distilleries and brew pubs, a welcome event at Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards, numerous events throughout the weekend at our host wineries and the walk to the falls at Taughannock Falls State Park on Sunday morning at 10AM.  This year we will not have any wine tasting tickets due to the challengers faced by our winery partners.  What we will do is list for you the tasting fees and arrangements provided to us by each winery and you may then pick and choose where you visit.


You must be twenty-one years of age to register or taste wine.  Younger family members may attend with their parents.


The main event on Friday and Saturday will be held at Catharine Valley Winery, just north of Watkins Glen.  Prehean Winery on the west shore of Seneca Lake will be our Early Bird winery.   Early Bird check-in takes place Tuesday and Wednesday, all day, and Thursday up to 4PM.  Then registration and Check-In moves to Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards for our Welcome event Thursday evening starting at 5PM.  (We need an hour to move all the registration stuff from Prejean, the Early Bird venue, to Hazlitt.)


Our Welcome event will be hosted by Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards (5712 NY St Rt 414 Hector, NY) on Thursday, July 21st,  5-8 PM.


As always, we will walk with the hounds to Taughannock Falls on Sunday morning.

Hotels


There are many great accommodations which accept dogs listed on our  Hotels page.  Many waive their dog fees.  


Some folks choose to rent a cottage or cabin on the lake.   These can often be found at websites like VRBO (Vacation rentals by Owner).   Others stay at an area hotel.   Some folks like to stay at a campground cabin or in a camper.


Just don't wait to reserve a place to stay or you may miss out.  Things fill up quickly in July in this area.
