Here at Hosmer Winery, we try and keep tradition alive. Each bottle of wine starts from the ground up, literally. We use our breathtaking surroundings not only as inspiration but for a reason to do what we do. As one of the original wineries on Cayuga Lake we proudly represent some of the oldest vinifera in the Finger Lakes. We are a fully functioning estate winery; everything from growing, to picking, to pressing, to bottling is done on site. As a farm, we cultivate over 60 acres of grapes with over 10 varieties and growing. Our belief in winemaking and grape growing are parallel and continuing, we strive to maintain preservation of the land and the fruit form vine to table. Our passion for what we do is exemplified through the creation of our memorable wines.

This seemed to be a very relaxed place with several wines. Tastings are available for a small fee. They were not busy when we were there so we got lots of attention. Free parking is available right in front of the tasting room.

It was beginning to get crowded when we arrived, so another tasting area was opened in the back. We enjoyed the character of this tasting room that was made from the original barn on the property. Most of the wines we tried were very good. However, I have had their Sangria before and liked it, but this time the smell... More

What a pleasant surprise! Hosmer isn't a "fancy" place like some of the other wineries, but produces a number of EXCELLENT wines. At most wineries, out of 5-6 tastings we might find one or two that we like. Here we had to agonize over which of the five NOT to take home!

Greeted warmly by a knowledgeable staff member. She was interested in us, where we were from and what types of wine we preferred. Excellent wines and took the option of purchasing a souvenir wine glass. Very nice stop.

It costs $3.75 to taste 5 or 6 wines. Their wines were good, but none of them really stood out enought for us to make... More

The wine was typical New York wine but I enjoyed the Lemberger, Sauvignon Blanc, Cayuga Wine and Sangria (very good!). The staff was very good and offered great wine advice.
