Hermann.J Wiemer, Finger Lakes, USA

Hermann J. Wiemer vineyard was established in 1979 from the first vinifera plantings on west side Seneca lake (Finger Lakes, NY).

They produce different styles of wines from Riesling (dry, semi-dry and botrytised late harvest); Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Grüner Veltliner, Cabernet Franc, Pinot noir and even Saperavi (teinturier grape variety)! They also make some sparkling (blanc de blanc, blanc de noir and blend of chard + Pinot Noir)using the traditional method !

Honestly, these wines are really good and express the typicity of Finger Lakes’ wines. The balance between sugar level and acidity was here, the fruit expression too.

We really liked the Cuvée HJW Vineyard Riesling 2017.

They also are one of the biggest nursery of the country!
