The Grapehound           Wine Tour®

Advance registration is closed!  You may register in person at Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards on Thursday evening, July 25 or all day Friday and Saturday (7/26-27) at Catharine Valley Winery.

Our Early Bird winery will be Atwater Estate Vineyards, Tuesday, July 23 through 4PM Thursday, July 25th.  Early Bird registration ends about 4PM on Thursday and moves to Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards for Thursday evening.  

Our Welcome event will be hosted by Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards (5712 NY St Rt 414 Hector, NY) on Thursday, July 25th,  5-8PM.

Our main host winery location is Catharine Valley Winery about 4 miles north of Walmart on Route 414.

Our "going home" event on Sunday, July 28th, 2019 will be held at Fulkerson Winery on Route 14 on the west shore.  As always, we will walk with the hounds to Taughannock Falls on Sunday morning.

The Grapehound Wine Tour® 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 (7/25) to Sunday (7/28).  People may also sign up as an "Early Bird" and arrive early, before the event officially begins on Thursday evening, July 25.

The cost to register is $31 ($35 at the door) and this covers your choice of tasting glass, ten tickets for free tastings at ten wineries, distilleries or brew pubs, a welcome with hors d'oeuvres at Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards, a social event Friday evening and numerous events throughout the weekend at our host wineries.  (Tastings at most wineries in summer usually cost between $5-$7, so our fee of $31 is less than half what you would normally pay for ten winery visits.)

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


There are many great accommodations which accept dogs listed on ourHotels 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.
