“I finally got there”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

I'm local & finally got to Hector Wine Co. I wish I hadn't taken so long - wonderful wines ! I took home a case & ran into Phil Davis there too he's a grower with a wonderful pallet so there's the best advertising for this winery !

“Cheers;”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

Very personable staff with very good knowledge of their products. As neophyte wine drinkers we learned a lot while tasting samples and found several to purchase. This was our first stop on a self guided tour of (10) vineyards and what we learned there was helpful throughout the journey.

“The Worst Experience”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

This had to be worst winery we ever visited on our trip. The staff was rude, inexperienced and had absolutely no knowledge of their own wine. We paid for a wine tasting and with that you were "suppose" to get 6 samplings. However we received 2. The girl walked away and never came back?? When we asked her for our other sampling she said "oh I thought you wanted sweet red and we don't have that" So politely we asked for another option, with that said she was annoyed and brought us 2 more samples. Then we decided to leave and vowed NEVER to return!!! Beware stay away!!!

RJB- At Hector Wine Company our tasting room staff is not only trained in how to sell and pour wine but also in how the wines are made. Every member works during harvest to know the process in and out. From that comes a more conscientious knowledge of what we are pouring. While I never like to hear about a group visiting the finger lakes having a bad experience, I feel the need to defend this bad review. Your group arrived without a reservation and refused to wait for room at the tasting bar. After receiving complaints from your group on our small selection of sweeter wines, the winery owner offered you more tastings to which your group refused.

I can always be reached for reservations or questions about our tasting room experience and wine list at adoniger@hectorwinecompany.com

“Hector Wine Co.”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Great wine at Hector Wine Co, make this a stop on your list. Fun taste testing and hearing how the wines are made, the farm is just across the road from the winery. Also a variety of cheeses and dips, definitely worth the stop on your wine trail visit.
