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 Read more »

  • Hosmer Pinot Gris Cayuga Lake 2007

    Snoothrank:

    The 2007 Hosmer Pinot Gris features ripe peach, melon and mineral aromas that give way to a rich, fruit laden palate and lingering finish. This varietal wine has no oak aging and is an excellent alternative to Chardonnay. Pinot Gris is sometimes known as Pinot Grigio. Read More

  • Hosmer Cabernet Franc Cayuga Lake 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Cabernet Franc has traditionally been blended with other red Bordeaux varieties, including its relative Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2006 Cabernet Franc is a prime example of the fruity nature of all the 2006 vinifera reds. A sweet plummy core of weight wrapped with raspberry and bramble berries around a smooth yet gripping finish and supple tannins. Read More

  • Hosmer Riesling Cayuga Lake 2007

    Snoothrank:

    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.
