CAYUGA LAKE WINE TRAIL MEMBER
Hosmer Winery is home to Patrician Verona Vineyard established in 1972, comprised of the nearly 70 acres of grapes that provide Hosmer Winery with the fruit to remain a fully functioning estate winery. The vineyard frames our tasting room and production facility creating a picturesque setting on the western shore of Cayuga Lake in the Finger Lakes region of New York. With silt loam soils, shale bedrock, and Easterly sloping land that matches near-maximum lake width and depth, Patrician Verona is ideally situated within the Finger Lakes Region to produce premium wine grapes. The grapes include Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Lemberger, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Sauvignon Blanc, among several other natives and hybrids. By preserving and building soil the grapes are grown on and exploring new ways to reduce environmental impacts, the vines can inhabit a site less altered by modern agricultural inputs. The wines can portray a truer reflection of the Patrician Verona Vineyard site.
Hosmer wines have consistently earned prestigious medals from both regional and international wine competitions.
Today, Hosmer produces 20 thousand gallons of wine annually. At this boutique level, we are able to assure the excellence of the entire process, from the basic fruit to the finished wine. He works closely with Winemaker, Julia Hoyle to produce consistent quality wines in the European tradition.
Hosmer wines have been recognized consistently over the years at both regional and international competitions, as well as by highly respected publications including the Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, Wine & Spirits, USA Today, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal.
