Beginning tomorrow 3/17/20 our hours for “take-out” will be from 3-6pm during the week and 2-6pm on weekends. We will not be serving wine during this time but you can come in to purchase wine and food to-go from our market or call ahead for curbside pick up. We are also extending our free shipping promotion until the end of the month for those who want wine shipped directly to their homes. Our wholesale channels will remain open as well for as long as they’re permitted. We will all get through this together and we thank you for your support of our small business and those like us. We wish you all good health, great wine and the ability to stay calm. #winemadewithsoul

Our Story

Inspired Winemaking

At Hector Wine Company, our portfolio emulates a deep commitment to making wines that reflect our centuries old farm, Sawmill Creek Vineyards. Because of this commitment, we handcraft each wine. This means that we handpick in the vineyard and employ a second hand sort at the winery every time. We allow for long fermentations, often spontaneous, and don’t rush the wines into bottle. Our small production wines are carefully curated to express balance and terroir.

The Reds

Our red portfolio is a true reflection of the vineyard. By employing spontaneous fermentations and no fining or filtering, the reds are expressive and distinctive of each vintage.  We have compelling blends such as the Essence, varietal bottlings with personality and an approachable blend called Soul Red.

The Whites

Our white portfolio allows us to create wines with brightness and balance. Aromatic, mainly dry with a few off dry offerings, the whites are teeming with energy. We make mostly varietal bottlings. Some are done in barrel, like the Pinot Blanc while others are made in stainless steel like the Sauvignon Blanc and Dry Riesling.  Our Luminessence is a co-fermented blend of the Alsatian white varieties.
