Herman J. Wiemer Winery

New York Wine, Seneca Lakes

About Herman J. Wiemer Winery and Vineyard

Hermann J. Wiemer was born in Bernkastel, Germany into a family with 300 years experience in making the distinguished vinifera wines of the Mosel Valley.

He arrived in the United States in 1968 well versed in the European tradition of fine winemaking. To this heritage he added the skill of grafting fragile Vinifera vines onto sturdy American rootstock. In 1973 he bought 140 acres on the west side of Seneca Lake, which he planted with a variety of European Vinifera grapevines.

The Winery, which produces 12,000 cases each year, was designed in 1982 by an award winning team of Cornell architects. Enclosed within the shell of a seventy-year-old scissor-trussed barn, it accommodates a laboratory, tasting and retail sales, a wine production area and a private tasting room. Its unique white cathedral-like interior counterpoints the bare wooden walls and sleek Italian stainless steel tanks.
