Overview

Hector Wine Company was designed to highlight our hand crafted wines and local artists at a slower pace. Founded in 2010 and located in Hector, NY we are on the East Side of Seneca Lake. 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.

Nice location on the wine trail. Wines here are on the dryer side. The catawba and semi-dry reslings are on the sweet side for this location. Nice staff.

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!

Normally I visit with my husband as wine club members. Today I visited as apart of a bachelorette party. I know large parties can be difficult to deal with. The staff was extremely accommodating. Amazing wine and customer service.
