With so many great wines to enjoy in this region, it's easy to get into a routine of visiting only your favorites. We made a conscious decision to sample some we'd never been to before. That is how we came to discover the wonderful wines and people of Hector Wine Company. On our first visit we had the very pleasant... More

The location on the eastern shores of Seneca lake, is quite remote..we stumbled upon it on a leisurely drive. A gorgeous new building...huge...clean and totally inviting...a bar area as well as gift area... Lovely variety of wines..loved all that we sampled..great staff, too. Wines are only sold there so far..reasonably priced..

My husband and I have been going to Hector Wine Co. for many years and have always had a great experience. What I love, in addition to their wines, is they can easily accommodate a group of people. They have two large serving bars and several large tables. You can also order glasses and bottles of wine. I love that... More

Probably my favorite winery in the fingerlakes. We spent awhile chatting with the staff who provided us with great recommendations for the area. The wine was fabulous and of course we enjoyed spending time with their dog, Luna.

We visited Hector Winery over Thanksgiving as part of a day-long private winery tour. Hector Winery was the favorite for everyone in our group -- by far the best wine we tasted, the most gracious and knowledgeable staff, the best ambiance. Thank you, Hector Winery, for a delightful experience.

There are different ways to compare wine tastings: solely the wine, or the entire experience. In our most recent trip we went to 6 wineries around Seneca Lake. We like all types of wines except those overpowered by sugar (fructose I suppose). Hector Wine Co had the best wine. (Another winery which paired their wines with local cheeses and local... More

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.
