Winery / Vineyard Food & Drink
Hector Wine Company is a small, quality-driven winery located on the east side of Seneca Lake in Hector, NY. It’s owned and operated by local viticulturist, Jason Hazlitt and winemaker, Justin Boyette. They began making wine in 2009 from grapes harvested at Jason’s family business Sawmill Creek Vineyards and opened the tasting room across the street from the Vineyard in 2010. The philosophy at Hector Wine Company is that winemaking and grape growing are as much a creative endeavor as a scientific one. The crew at Hector Wine Company is committed to making distinctively high quality wines from grapes that are handpicked at optimal ripeness and manually hand sorted at the winery. The tasting list includes mainly dry reds and whites, touched with a selection of off-dry and semi-sweet wines. All aspects of production, from press to bottle, occur on-site; fostering the ideal that a world class wine is handled by its makers from start to finish.

  • Great atmosphere, friendly staff. Very nice and laid back. I also enjoy their wines quite a bit!
  • Hector had only ten wines on their tasting menu, and I tasted both of their dry reds. They have a very nice large tasting room, but there is not a great view. They also have a large selection of hot sauce made with wine. It would have been great if I could also have a hot sauce tasting!
  • Great location mid way down the east side of Seneca Lake. Amazing views of the lake just north of the winery. Staff was super friendly.
  • Excellent wine!
  • Great wine tasting with Justin and information about the area, grapes and styles of wines they are producing. Each wine is different, very terroir driven and food friendly. They will help select wines for you to enjoy all year long. Salud my friend. ...well done
