Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard named Wine & Spirits Top 100 Winery of 2018

Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard has been selected as one of the Wine & Spirits Magazine Top 100 Wineries of 2018. This is the 9th time in the last 10 years that we have received this honor. Wine & Spirits Editor Patrick Comiskey writes of Wiemer, “Hermann J. Wiemer not only took Top 100 honors this year: Fred Merwarth’s 2016s pretty much crushed the new tasting table in our Los Angeles offices… When it comes to Riesling, there is simply no one better in the United States.”

Wiemer will be joining the other Top 100 wineries to pour at the 15th Annual Top 100 tasting event on Tuesday, October 9th in San Francisco.  “We are happy to be in such great company and to be representing New York State and the Finger Lakes Region!” says Wiemer co-owner, Oskar Bynke.
