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 late 1970’s. Although Cameron’s father didn’t get to see full fruition of this dream, the farm has grown to over 60 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 a degree in Pomology from Cornell University and a semester at California State University, Fresno (renowned for their world-class programs in viticulture and enology), Cameron had both the background and experience to get started in the budding industry. With their first vintage of 2,500 gallons in 1985, they opened a tasting room in their garage in the fall of 1986. In 1990, with increased production and growing recognition, the decision was made to renovate a barn across the street and inaugurate a new tasting and retail facility. The friendly atmosphere and knowledgeable staff introduces thousands of visitors a year to a memorable tasting experience. The Tasting and Retail facility is located on State Route 89, along the western shore of Cayuga Lake, just 20 miles north of Ithaca. Today, Hosmer produces 20 thousand gallons of wine annually. At this boutique level, Cameron is able to assure the excellence of the entire process, from the basic fruit to the finished wine. He works closely with Vineyard Manager, Mike DeGaray and Winemaker, Aaron Roisen to produce consistent quality wines in the European tradition. Hosmer wines include a wide variety of styles made from traditional vinifera, as well as French-American hybrid varieties. Hosmer Wines are available in liquor stores and fine restaurants throughout most of New York State. Shipping is available directly from the winery, some restrictions apply.

The 2007 Riesling, with all its decency to uphold the abilities of Riesling in the Finger lakes, does so in a fashion only to resemble that of a great statesman. Full of vim and vigor, it holds a magnificent abundance of peach and honeyed lemon up front to bring about a wonderful level of acidity to keep the sweet in check with lime and Anjou and Bosc pear flavors.

Shy on the nose, but delivers a rich mouthful of lemon, pound cake, floral and peach flavors. Full-bodied, with a big finish. Impressive. Drink now through 2004.

This semi-dry Riesling (3.2% R.S.) delivers a mouthful of fruit including peaches, mangoes, lemons and limes. It is a full-bodied wine that is well balanced by the Riesling's natural acidity, so it has a long, lively finish.

Richer style, with apple and fig notes and a plump, just off-dry finish. Drink now.

Ripe and forward, with apple, piecrust, fig and pear notes followed by a round, modestly juicy finish. Has solid range, just lacks a little zip on the finish. Drink now.

The 2007 Dry Riesling is fresh and crisp with a bright finish. Flavors of lime and apple bounce around the palate with a zesty essence of tangerine.

This is crisp but generous enough, with refreshing lime and green apple notes. Bright finish. Drink now.
