  • As we headed south from Wagner Vineyards, John (from Wagner’s) had told us to stop at the Hector Wine Company, just past the post office. We saw the post office and drove right by the winery. We are s...  more »
  • Went there in the past and their reds are excellent and so is the BBQ sauce they sell also. One of the few good red vineyards of Senaca Lake NY, I recommend!  more »
  • What a welcome! I love visiting the vineyards week, when there are fewer people. It allows us to take the time to chat with the people who work there. Then, they really have the time to tell us about their wines, their passion. These are precious moments. The service is really excellent, and their wines too. Too bad, the pinot Grigio was sold out! (We understand why!) They come back, that's for sure.

  • Really great experience here. Their dog is really social, staff knew the wines and gave great descriptions. Plus, one of their owners is part owners of Forge, which you can try for a premium. Forge is totally worth it, we bought a few bottles. Overall, Hector has much better red wines than the rest of the finger lakes, good white wines, good views of the lake and is very much worth visiting.
  • This place is amazing. The wine is fantastic, service is great. You don't want to miss Hector if you are tasting in the finger lakes, especially if you like dry wines.
  • Stopped by yesterday. There were 11 of us and there was not one other person in the tasting room. The staff person was upset that we had not made a reservation. Also that we had "interrupted his nap time." Even though we apologized for not making a reservation, he did not let it go. We have been coming here for years, and have always enjoyed our tastings. Very disappointed in the experience we had.
  • Awesome experience! Comfortable tasting room with friendly staff. Really nice reds and on point whites . So happy to have stopped on our trip to the finger lakes .
  • A really excellent operation. We visited on a slow day, but even on a busy one it would be safe to wager that the vibe would still be "chill." A comfortable place. More importantly, Hector Wine Co. is producing some seriously good wines, and consistently so. The "Essence" Bordeaux-esque blend can stand up to some of the best FLX reds we have had. Even the "budget cuvee" offerings are of good quality and well constructed. They also offer some of the Forge wines for tasting and sale, which are uniformly excellent. Truly a must-visit Finger Lakes winery.
