Since their founding, Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard has approached the health of our vineyards as the most vital component of winemaking.
The HJW Vineyard features Hermann’s original plantings on Seneca Lake of Riesling and Chardonnay from 1977 and 1978. Mature vines, combined with the site’s shallow topsoil and shale bedrock, produce lower yields, resulting in expressively vibrant flavors. Higher elevation and a greater distance from Seneca Lake contribute to a cooler growing season, resulting in leaner, more austere wines with intense flavor and excellent aging potential. In 2009, we planted two more block of Riesling, bringing the total acreage to 33. In 2015, they began their venture with biodynamic farming and have converted the entire property.
