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.

What has always stood out and continues to bring us back each and every time we go to the wineries is the fantastic atmosphere. It is very laid back, and the staff is always friendly and personable.

This place was great and nice for us to be able to sit for a while and enjoy a bottle! The Soul Red was perfect for that!!! It was fun to just hang out here!

Stopped here on the peak fall weekend. We were greeted by the wine dog Luna, but don't feed her any pretzels! They didn't 't have any Chardonnay, but the server recommended the Pinot Blanc. I was pleasantly surprised as it was stored in oak and was really great! Our server was really attentive and friendly. Definitely a great experience!

Emma, who directed our tasting, was an enthusiastic ambassador for the winery and the Finger Lakes region. Although none of the wines were outstanding, several were very good, and the breadth was impressive for this area, which is typically dominated by one or two varietals. The tasting room is open later than others in the area and would make a... More

We had visited a few years ago when they first opened and we weren't overly impressed (but I believe that was due to when we visited in the day (7th or 8th winery, and our ability to taste was impaired)... and the fact that our appreciation for drier wines has developed in the past couple years... The tasting room attendant... More

This winery has a big white winery dog named Luna who greets the guests and then lays down, but she'll come back later to shake your hand. We love the Soul White wine. They have several from dry to sweet that should please most everyone.

This is one of my favorite wineries in the Finger Lakes! I love that the staff here is all so involved with the wine-making process, from harvest to pouring it, which really shows with their knowledge when pouring. Alexandra (Alex) is my favorite! She's so friendly, outgoing, welcoming, and helped create an awesome sauvignon blanc! I also love their music... More

I've been to HCW several times. It's one of my favorite places to stop on the trail. The wine selection is small but purposely so to keep the quality of the wines high. The staff is extremely welcoming and friendly and in my experience one of the most knowledgable that I've seen. The staff is part if the entire operation,... More
