This place was upbeat, fun, and had good wine. The wine pourer was knowledgeable and made us feel comfortable. The prices were decent, unlike other wines on the eastern side of Seneca Lake.

So glad we made this stop. First let me say they have bar stools, which makes a huge difference when you’ve been to a few places before which didn’t. Then our sommelier was so much fun, which made the tasting fun even the décor was fun! Great wines and they even gave poker chips that can be traded in for... More

Overpriced tasting, overpriced wines that are mediocre at best, the wines rate relative to others at the low 80s on the WS scale. My advice to the owners would be to price the wines in the $8 range & that may bring significantly higher sales.

This winery has several very good wines whether you like dry or sweet or in between. The people are very friendly and were quite generous with the tasting pours. Beautiful grounds too.

I came here with my husband. The tasting room is nice and the bartender (I think his name was joe) was a lot of fun. He had a lot of information about the winery and the red cat history. We had a very fun time and purchased some wine. Make sure to stop by here. Try the brambelberry wine it's... More

A really great time for a group of friends maybe a bachelor/bachelorette party. There is more to do than most wineries and the wine slushies are great. This is a fun winery, that I would suspect gets busy and rowdy in season. We had a great time.

We drove up the East side of Seneca Lake. We found this cute little Winery and stopped in because there were a lot of cars in the parking lot. Little did we know that this winery is known for the Red Cat sweet wine. The friendly staff offers a casual approach and informal atmosphere for wine lovers. We did a... More

This winery carries alot of sweet wines, which I do not care for. However, we always look forward to visiting this winery. They are very laid back and have a Jimmy Buffet-esque feel. We will be going to Sececa in a few months and Hazlitt is definitely on our list!

I am a fanatic about the Hazlitt wine it is by far one of the best I have found Love almost all of the different tastes and favor Brambleberry and other reds especially Only thing I wish they would do is get into more Florida Liquor Stores. We winter there some and in the Daytona--Ormond area it is non existentant... More

My wife loves the Red Cat wine and we always need to stop and get some as we only live about 6 miles from them.
