Located in the heart of the Finger Lakes Wine Country, Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard stands on the western shores of Seneca Lake.
Having emigrated to the Finger Lakes in the 1960’s Hermann J. Wiemer is regarded as one of the pioneers of viticulture and winemaking in the Finger Lakes. At a time when very few thought it was possible to grow vinifera varietals on Seneca Lake, Hermann believed that the unique soil types and moderating weather effects of the Finger Lakes would make it possible to produce great wines here.
With three separate estate vineyards their winemaker, Fred Merwarth, is able to use old and new techniques to create some magnificent wines.
Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard has been named to the Top 100 Wineries of the year by Wine & Spirits Magazine in three separate years.
