This is Anna relaxing in the social tent.  Anna is way too cute!  Anna belongs to Cathy from Poughkeepsie, NY.

This is Gary at Atwater Vineyards, owned by Amanda and Noel Catti.  I know what you mean, Gary:  I saw a lot of humans looking at those Atwater wines with their tongues hanging out too!

Our new 2019 Grapehound Wine Tour® shirt is here!

Kent Roberts, the well-known greyhound artist, has designed this year's shirt to celebrate Woodstock, wine tasting and greyhounds.  How cool is that?

The shirt features a VW bus frm the 1960's, covered with hearts and flowers and being driven by a greyhound.  A bunny sits in the pasenger's seat giving us the peace sign.  Another greyhound plays rock & roll music next to the bus.  This is a fun, fanciful shirt which celebrates the 50th anniversary of Woodstock along with our annual wine and greyhounds event tin the Finger Lakes of New York.

Custom Design  You may custom design your shirt in several ways if you order in advance.  The shirt comes in sizes small through 4XL.  You may also order this lavender shirt in universal cut style or ladies cut.  Or you may keep our wording on the back (Peace, Love, Wine Greyhounds) or order your shirt with the back side blank. 

Like the sixties, you have lots of choices with our one-time Woodstock shirt.  But you should order your shirt now, as we expect the limited number of shirts that we bring to the event to sell out fast.  if you buy one in advance, we will hold it for you with your name on it.  Pick your shirt up at the event with no shipping cost at all or we'll ship it to your door for $4.  

Cheers from Kay Boniface as she relaxes at the new Boundary Breaks winery with her three hounds, Sabrina, Dakota and Geyser.  Boundary Breaks is not far from our main location in Ovid.

Bille Axell photography took this special photo of Stephanie and Ron Miles' two hounds, Daisy Mae and Kenny, as Kenny was getting to know his biological brother.  A special moment on Seneca Lake!
