Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards & Winery, having entered its twenty-fifth year of wine tasting and sales, might be considered a youngster in this industry. But 25 years of retail doesn't do justice to the history and experience of the Hazlitt clan. Viticulture has been the life-blood of the family for 158 years. On April 1, 1852 David Hazlitt purchased 153 acres in the hamlet of Hector including most of present day Peach Orchard Point. The property's fruit trees and vineyards provided regionally sold produce that the Hazlitts shipped via wagon, boat, and the ever-expanding railroad. Six generations later the Hazlitt legacy continues at the most popular winery in the Finger Lakes region! The late Jerry Hazlitt and his wife Elaine founded the winery in 1985. Jerry was an ardent home winemaker and wanted to share the fruits of his labor with friends and visitors. His love of the Finger Lakes, antiquities, and native lore made for many wonderful Saturday afternoon gatherings around the original tasting room bar sipping wine and being mesmerized by Jerry's animated storytelling. Now one of the Top 25 Tasting Rooms in the United States according to the May 2008 issue of the Wine Enthusiast Magazine, the Hazlitt tasting room, including the famous horseshoe bar, provides a relaxing visit for those who enjoy their wine with stories, laughter and smiles. This casual approach affords visitors an opportunity to spend a little more time learning about wine in an informal atmosphere without intimidation. With its picnic tables, sparkling ponds and rolling horse pastures, the winery property also invites people to enjoy the region's quiet charm.
