Hector Wine Company was designed to highlight our hand crafted wines and local artists at a slower pace. Founded in 2010 and located in Hector, NY we are on the East Side of Seneca Lake. The casual environment is a great place to enjoy a variety of fine wines, local music, local art and the culinary culture of the Finger Lakes. Now also home to Forge Cellars.

We had one of the owners help with our tasting... There are 7 generations of the same family working this farm land. We bought a bottle of Essence and a bottle of the Sauvignon Blanc.... (best Sauv Blanc we have tasted in the Finger Lakes). Make sure you stop here.

Had a nice wine tasting experience here. Just cooked a steak with some BBQ sauce I purchased there, yummy!!!!! Asked a local about wine suggestions as he was picking up several bottles and tried a wine I may not have if did not ask a local.

This place has a nice atmosphere inside while sampling wines ($3 per person). We have been here in the past and wanted to purchase their wines again as our local liquor stores do not sell the wines from this company. We purchased the Essence (dry red) and Sauvignon Blanc.

We spent a week and traveled almost all of the Finger Lakes. Today was rainy and we ended with Hector Wines. Jennie Cook, soon to be married :) was our tasting expert and she was so friendly. The wine was amazing, I recommend the Gewurtztraminer and the Merlot. Jennie made us feel at home and she's sarcastic and fun! Of... More

With most wineries closing at 5 and our late arrival into town, we were short on time to sample. Yet we pulled in at 5:50 and the young gal at the counter was more than happy to please us even though she admitted it had been a long day. We found the wines to be quite good and bought a... More

Great service and good options for red wines. Service comes with a big smile and prices are far less than other wine regions in the US. Hence, I was "forced" to buy a few bottles of wine.

Red wines were great....staff were not. Our server looked bored , and uninterested in pouring and describing our wine. Too bad, as we would have purchased several great wines if the staff had been a bit more engaging.

This was our first winery on our trip to the Finger Lakes region. It will be hard to live up to this. The tasting was inexpensive, but the wines were fantastic. Their Gewürztraminer is truly unlike others I have had before. There Essence which was a nice dry red, was full bodied and yet not overwhelmingly dry - nicely balanced.... More
