Enjoy friendly staff, antique decor, and the casual atmosphere of Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards on beautiful Seneca Lake. Visit us and see why the Wine Enthusiast Magazine (May 2008) voted us one of the Top 25 tasting rooms in the United States. Great wines! Great times! Home of the Red Cat.

This place was very eclectic. It was unlike any other winery in the Finger Lakes. Melanie was the wine assistant. She was a lot of fun. Instead of crackers, they served popcorn. None of the wines were exceptional, but the sangria was really good. Would...More

Had a really great visit here over memorial day weekend. The sangria wines and bramble berry wine were sooooo good. Also love that they are affordable and sell 1.5 liter bottles. Got 3 of the big bottles.

They had a good selection of cider. My favorite was cinnamon spice. I even bought a case. Decent wines too. Didn’t love the sangria or cat fizz. They serve popcorn with the drinks. The staff didn’t seem that knowledgeable about the differences. 5 for $5,...More

Especially in the summertime when you can enjoy their outdoor space, Hazlitt is always a great time! The red and white cat are both delicious summertime drinks, and the wine slushes never disappoint. Inexpensive and you get tokens for discounts if you do a wine...More
