We are excited to welcome you back to the Winery! At Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard we take pride in our farm & wine and we thrive on our relationship with our patrons and friends. Therefore, we are reopening with a mindful, welcoming and hospitable approach. We plan to open slowly in a way that will ensure the safety of our staff and customers while offering a meaningful experience. We are aware that people’s comfort levels vary regarding travel and safety and we want you to know that we are always committed to excellence: in health & safety, hospitality, and wine quality. 

Starting Friday, June 12th, we will be offering outdoor and patio seating service with a by-the-glass and bottle program. Tables will be available by reservation only in an effort to follow all social distancing recommendations and create a positive experience for both our staff and guests.

We will follow the CDC and State NY guidelines, all while ensuring that your time at Wiemer is as memorable and special as it always has been. We are looking forward to welcoming you back to the Winery to relax, connect, and share our love of wine and the Finger Lakes.
