This is a DO NOT MISS experience
May 2021
My wife and I have been coming to Seneca Lake for over 13 years, primarily for the wine tasting around the Lake. Seneca provides some of our favorite wines and we thought we had experienced the best that Seneca offered. We were wrong. This past weekend, we made a stop at Kemmeter Wines for the very first time. The experience completely blew us away.

Johannes is a true artist who really takes the time to explain his wines to you. The love and attention to detail is apparent and it absolutely shows in his wines. We have been to wine regions all over the country and hands down, we walked away saying this was the single best experience we have had.

As good as the wines are, do not miss the dumplings that are produced at the same location These will rival or surpass any that you have had elsewhere.

We have already booked a return trip to the Lake and made a stop at Kemmeter our top priority. Do not miss this gem!!!!!!

Don't miss this winery!
Oct 2020 • Couples
My wife and I visited the Finger Lakes in October, and this Winery was my favorite of all:

Johannes, the winemaker and owner himself, scheduled our appointment and hosted the tasting for just us. Very intimate experience, and extremely educational!

Flight was only white wines, but each wine was delicious and different in flavor from the next. Johannes carefully and thoroughly outlined the differences between each of the wines.

Bottles are a little pricier than other wineries, but there was no charge on the tasting for two of us. This was the only Winery that I returned to to purchase additional bottles.

These are the best wines and the best wine tasting experience in FLX. wonderful wines are made by passionate winemakers, and none in FLX are more passionate about their craft than Johannes. and now his wife is making dumplings and it just might be the best lunch in FLX!

Call first

The Finger Lakes have a lot of good wine, but if you want to try the best, you must call Kemmeter and make an appintment to taste. This is not a hurried little run in and pick 5 wines stop, this is an education in FLX vineyards by arguably the most influential winemaker since Dr Frank.

Exceptional Experience
Jun 2019 • Couples
If you're serious about wine, you simply have to go. By appointment only, so reserve in advance, especially in high season. My partner and I had wonderful experiences at several area wineries--Boundary Breaks, Silver Thread, Bloomer Creek and Standing Stone among them--but our visit with Johannes was the highlight of our recent trip. Yes, the wines are stellar, but what elevates Kemmeter above the rest is getting to hang out for an hour or so with the winemaker in his beautifully crafted, intimate tasting room. Johannes is incredibly charming and welcoming, and he shares his passion and expertise with great warmth and good humor. What he is doing in the pursuit of excellence is truly remarkable. Spending time with him was a privilege we won't soon forget.

A Finger Lakes Treasure
May 2019 • Couples
My husband, daughter and I visited Kemmeter Wines this week. It was beyond all our expectations. The quality of the wines was exceptional; each wine had a unique balance. The skill and knowledge of Johannes was evident in every product. We especially appreciated the time that Johannes spent with us. His authenticity and philosophies enhanced the experience and will remain with us. We believe every patron of Kemmeter will enjoy the quality of the wine and the conversation.

I'd give Kemmeter Wines a "SIX" rating if I could!

Not only did we get to taste exceptional wines at Kemmeter Vineyard, but we had the most incredible time talking with owner Johannes Reinhardt. This wonderful and knowledgeable man took the time to clear his entryway during a terrible winter storm to keep his appointment for our wine tasting. He could easily have cancelled. I have had MANY wine tastings, but nothing beats this one. Johannes gave us a great education on how he cleared and started his vineyard, how the vines were planted and the reasons for his methods. I thoroughly enjoyed learning how he makes his wines. I also really appreciate when a person leading a wine tasting waits until you taste the wine and then asks you what you are tasting. He doesn't plant tasting ideas in your mind ahead of time. Rieslings are his passion, and the four Rieslings that we tasted were some of the very best I've tried in the FingerLakes region. Johannes is an exceptionally kind and gifted person. It is no wonder that his vineyards and his very fine wines are so amazing. This is a MUST STOP wine experience anytime you are in the Seneca Lake area.

Kemmeter Winery -- small but Great wines
Sep 2018 • Friends
This is a relatively new winery in the Finger Lakes and is small in comparison to most of them. It has a small tasting room open by appointment only on Thursday thru Saturday from 1:30pm to 5:30pm. However, it is worth the effort to make a visit if for nothing more than to talk with either Johannes or Imeda Reinhardt the owners and winemaker. They are both welcoming and very knowledgeable about their wines and those in the Finger Lakes. Although they have a small selection of wines, all of them are excellent. The Pinot Noir rose and Pinot Blanc were both sold out on our visit, but we did get to try all the Rieslings.

Amazing wines and owner!
Sep 2018 • Friends
Wonderful hand crafted wines made by dedicated winemaker, Johannes. We learned so much about what makes his great wines so special from this very gracious host. Very small vineyard well worth making an appointment to visit if you are serious about wines (pinot blanc, pinot noir rose', 3 rieslings). We have been to many wineries around the world and Kemmeter ranks with the best.
