Protocol on Visiting Hector Wine Company during Covid-19:

We are currently offering seated wine flights in lieu of the traditional face to face tasting at the tasting bar. Please note that flight service ends each day at 5:30 promptly and that we operate on a first come, first served basis. No reservations are being accepted at this time.

No groups over 6 people will be allowed. Please note that we cannot make exceptions to this rule or split up your large group into multiple tables. 6 people is the absolute max. Until restrictions are lifted there will be no limos or buses accepted of any size group.

Another thing we ask you to keep in mind when visiting wine country is that the running of each business will look a little different, especially as we all navigate through new protocol and safety guidelines. At Hector Wine Company, we’ve been working hard on a plan that not only fits this new model but also makes the experience better than ever for our guests. After all, necessity is the mother of invention! Below is an outline of what you can expect when you come to the winery for a visit.

  • Expanded Outdoor SeatingThere are tables and chairs spread around the grounds of the winery for the enjoyment of visitors. 
  • Tasting Flights. Instead of traditional face-to-face tastings, we will be offering the opportunity to choose from a variety of flight choices. Our host at the door will take you to one of our outdoor or indoor tables (limited capacity indoors). You’ll have a server designated to your table who will walk you through the options and then you can choose the wines and the size of the pours. For now, no reservations are required and it is first come, first served. Masks are required until seated at your table. 
  • Wine by the Glass or BottleEnjoy a glass or a bottle with friends at any of our designated outdoor seating areas. Check in with our host for table service.
  • Artisan Market Take-Out or Enjoy On-Site. Shop for locally produced and artisan food goods right in our market. Items are available for take-out and most items are available for enjoyment on site. Your server will furnish you with cutting boards and utensils as needed.
  • Food Truck Weekends. Shuck Yeah Food Truck is parked in front of the winery on Saturdays. October 11th will be their last day of the season. Please note that masks and social distancing are required and they operate on a first come, first serves basis until they sell out of food or the winery closes. Carry out or dine in on one of our outdoor tables, or bring your own picnic blanket!
  • Take-Out and Curbside Pick-Up. We will still be open for take-out and call ahead curbside pick-up of wine and market items daily. 607-387-1045.

As always, you can count on us for safe and clean practices. In addition to deep cleaning daily, we will be sanitizing all surfaces, handles, bathrooms, tables, etc. throughout the day and there will be hand sanitizer available for use by the register stations and doors.
