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.

Top winery on East side of Seneca

I can't say enough good things about this place. The service, atmosphere, wine, cheese, and any other little goodies are always the best. This is one of my top wineries on Seneca... read more

Went after all the good reviews not sure if because it was late in the day for the staff but with our arrival felt awkward like intruding into some one personal living space the 1 worker was talking loudly with friends/family not sure small child was running back and forth was very difficult to get a server for a wine...

Ok the wine wasn't the best but the people were nice and friendly. The place doubles as a little general store where you can buy everything from pancake flour to meats and cheese as well as wine related gifts.

I can't say enough good things about this place. The service, atmosphere, wine, cheese, and any other little goodies are always the best. This is one of my top wineries on Seneca lake for sure. I would frequent more if they were closer but if you haven't had their wine, go and try it. If you like minerally, clean, crisp... More

We made this our second stop on a winery tour and were very happy with the experience. Because we were early, we were among the very few present. For our group of six, we had two employees to walk us through the tastings. Both were very knowledgeable and helped us enjoy The wines were delicious, some favorites included the Gewürztraminer...

We actually drove by Hector Wine on our way to another winery and turned around to make a stop. Glad we did! Nothing fancy, great reds and helpful people. Very friendly staff made our time enjoyable.

This winery was only a minute or two down the street from another winery we tried to go to, but it was just too packed. My wife wanted to head to lunch, but we decided to give Hector a try. We are very happy we did. All of their wines were great (my wife likes sweet and I like dry... More

Loved every wine! Very knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating staff. Great place to visit if you are a lover of dry wines. 2014 Pinot Blanc was delightful and a nice change from the many Rieslings sampled in the area. Good red blend and a good white blend. Enjoy!

The people behind the bar know their product, and what a fine product it is. Hector never fails to please my palate, be it with a red or a white, or with the Hector label or the Forge label. My most recent visit was supervised by Emma; excellent knowledge and attitude and willing to share both in a positive way.... More

Greeted at the door by Luna, a rescue pup, we knew we would enjoy the place. The staff at Hazlitt suggested that we stop by and I'm glad we did. Our party of 8 (only 6 tasters) was promptly greeted and walked through a tasting. Great conversation and service. Their winery dog took a liking to me so our group... More

We had an excellent time at Hectors Wine Company. I love the soul red wine. The tasting room is very nice. We will definitely return when we are in the area.
