Overview

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.

Hosmer was a nice visit. Most of wine is not bad (too sweet for us) and the staff was fun and engaging. A few of the wines were well worth trying.

Went on a long drive from Rochester around the lakes and stopped by Hosmer Winery for wine tasting. Nice wines and tasting costs 5$ each for 6 wines. Kids were offered popsicles. We brought wine and nice cheese from here

What's not to love about Hosmer Winery?! It's a smaller winery with a big personality made up of some of the best wines, scenic views, and a friendly staff! There are so many 'big' wineries popping up around the lakes that are into nothing more...More

We stopped at 4 wineries along the Cayuga Lake and found this one to have the best wine. They have a Perla "champagne" that is magnificent! Wonderful staff!

They are really known for their Rieslings we enjoyed our time, the lady in charge talked to us after our tasting and explained some of their history. We will stop again.
