winter tasting changes

2021-22 Winter Tastings

It’s plain to see that our tastings are much different now than in pre-pandemic times. The more intimate, relaxed, and educational tasting experience has come to be widely adapted and well-accepted by customers and by staff. Here at Hosmer, education of our wine, history, and the Finger Lakes region has always been our top priority. With our seated tasting experience, we are able to put a huge emphasis on those core beliefs and share knowledge with the customer.

As the seasons change, a lot of tasting protocols do as well. Here is how Hosmer Winery is now performing tastings during the 2021-22 winter season.

Reservations are not required for tastings.

Although they are not required, they are recommended if you want to guarantee your spot. We will be accepting walk-ins depending on availability. Our indoor space is very limited. Reservations recommended walk-ins by chance.

We are open 7 days a week!

Hosmer’s winter hours are Monday-Saturday 10-5 pm and Sunday 11-5 pm. We usually call our last tasting at about 4:30 pm.

Our maximum group size is 6 people.

Unfortunately, due to our limited space, we are not taking any groups larger than 6 people. We do not split larger groups. We appreciate your understanding.

HVM & Wine Club tastings are still complimentary!

We are still honoring complimentary tastings for Hosmer Vintage Members & Wine Club Members. If you’d like to make a reservation as a member, please give us a call. Interesting in joining one of our clubs? Click here for more information! 

Tastings are still $12 and are all indoors.

Our tasting fee is still the same at $12 per person. This includes 5 wines of your choice, a souvenir wine glass, crackers, and an educational tasting experience. We are not doing any flights outdoors at this time due to the weather. We offer additional food for purchase such as pre-made charcuterie boards, cheese, crackers, chocolate, & more!

Masks are required inside the building.

As of December 10th, 2021, NYS is now requiring masks in all indoor public places. Hosmer will be enforcing this inside our tasting room. The mandate is set to potentially lift on January 15th, 2022.

Some Holiday hours to keep in mind:
