At their 30 Anniversary Party on Saturday, August 6th, 2016
OVID, NY, July 21, 2016 /Hosmer Winery/ -- Cameron Hosmer's father, a Syracuse textile manufacturer, had envisioned growing grapes on the gentle slopes of Cayuga Lake at the family's summer home.  His vision took shape when Cameron and Maren started planting grapevines in the early 1970's.  Although Cameron's father didn't get to see full fruition of this dream, the farm has grown to over 70 acres of premium wine grapes. After fifteen years of selling their grapes to others, Cameron and Maren had their own vision of making and selling their own wine. With their first vintage of 2,500 gallons in 1985, they opened a tasting room in their garage on Route 89 in Ovid, NY in the fall of 1986. In 1991 Hosmers moved their tasting room into finished barn across the street and today the winery produces 25 thousand gallons of wine annually. At this boutique level, the Hosmer family is able to assure the excellence of the entire process, from the basic fruit to the finished wine.
In the year 2016, 30 years after we first opened our tasting room doors, Hosmer Winery received 90 points and "Best Buys" for their 2014 Riesling in Wine Enthusiast, 90 point for the 2012 Vintner's Reserve Dry Riesling in Wine Spectator as well as a "Best In Class" and Double Gold at the International Eastern Competition for their single vineyard, 2013 Single Wheel Dry Riesling . It's recognition like this that makes us reflect on the 30 years of pride and commitment we have toward the Finger Lakes wine industry.
Starting Saturday, August 6th, 2016, we invite you to join us for a two day celebration of this milestone. We will launch our 30th Anniversary Party at 2pm with the release of our 30th Anniversary Sparkling wine affectionately named "Perla". The Tribal Revival Band will be playing outside in the vineyard, Blowin Smoke Barbeque will be serving some great food, wine and beer will be available by the glass and exclusive special pricing on wine will make you want to restock your wine cellar. If you are looking to bring more than wine home with you, we will have tasting and sales with Crosswinds Creamery and Big Sissy's Hot Pepper Jellies and Wine Trail Quilts will be showing her line of hand stitched quilts. Saturday's event will end at 6pm but the festivities will continue into Sunday for our weekly Music and Mimosas. Join us Sunday, August 7th from 12 - 3 as we serve freshly-made mimosas and light snacks with live music from Marc and Tom and take advantage of the final day of our huge sales event. Standard wine tasting are also available during our normal hours. While food, wine and beer is purchasable, the rest of this event is free of charge.
Hosmer Winery is open year round on the west side of Cayuga Lake at 7020 Route 89 in Ovid, NY.

The long, yellow apple skin-framed finish shows good cut and drive. Drink now through 2017. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 100 cases made". –James Molesworth - Wine Spectator

Finger Lakes, New York - February 23rd, 2015 - Hosmer Winery in honored to announce 6 new scores from Wine Enthusiast that reflect the quality and consistency of our estate grown wine.

89 Points - 2013 Dry Riesling

89 Points - 2013 Pinot Noir

88 Points - 2013 Sauvignon Blanc

86 Points - 2013 Cabernet Franc


"The 2013 vintage presented itself with great potential and resulted in producing vinifera that truly reflected the harmony and the balance of the growing season. Careful blending and site selection was taken on in picking and piecing together the tremendous crop during the the 2013 harvest. All of Hosmer wines are 100% estate grown and our vineyards produce unique flavors and aromas for each variety that is reflected in the finesse and finish of the wines. It is incredibly rewarding to see the hard work and effort culminate into an understood appreciation." says Hosmer Winery winemaker Aaron Roisen. 


Initially a grape farm, with plantings from the early 1970s, Hosmer Winery was established in 1986 on the west bank of Cayuga Lake on the principle that great wines start in the vineyard. We farm 70 acres of 14 different grape varieties on the family estate. Primarily vinifera, our vines are 25-30+ years old growing on deep Cazenovian soils. The quality of wine that is captured in our bottles is a direct product of our pristine vineyards and thoughtful growing practices. As a full estate winery, we are able to insure the quality of every grape, from the roots to your glass.

Hosmer Wins Big AT NYCWFC

Tuesday, October 7, 2014 3:19:00 PM America/New_York

"Best Of Category" 2013 Sauvignon Blanc

The big news around Hosmer Winery is our win in the "Best Of Category" at the New York Wine and Food Classic with our 2013 Sauvignon Blanc. This is especially exciting for us as it is the first full production of Sauvignon Blanc we have made at the winery and it was the first Sauvignon Blanc Hosmer winemaker Aaron Roisen made in the Finger Lakes. Aaron Roisen was trained at the  Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology in New Zealand where the first wine he ever made was Sauvignon Blanc. From there he went on to make wine for some of the most revered wineries in New Zealand before relocated to the Finger Lakes in 2003.
Hosmer 2013 Sauvignon Blanc, bright with fruity acidity, begins with aromatics of box tree and tea berry moving quickly to gooseberry and clover. The front of the palate is bright and taut with fresh honeydew melon moving to mango and lemongrass. The finish is mouth watering and fulfilling with a faint breath of sweet French oak.
