If you're serious about wine, you simply have to go. By appointment only, so reserve in advance, especially in high season. My partner and I had wonderful experiences at several area wineries--Boundar... more »
Johannes is such a fantastic guy who makes really excellent Rieslings. Make sure you call ahead to schedule an appointment since tastings are by appointment only. You won't regret the effort since spending time with anyone so genuine and passionate is an unfortunately rare treat these days. In case that is not incentive enough, you will also get to taste some cracking-good wines at the same time. How can you go wrong? I will definitely be back next time I'm in the area.
Kemmeter Wines is a small winery with great Rieslings and a terrific Rose. The winemaker - Johannes Reinhardt - from Anthony Road winery has a superb estate riesling made with grapes from his estate. His estate grown rose is also very good. Two other wines complete the tasting - a riesling made from grapes from Cayuga Lake (Sheldrake) and a sweeter Riesling - like a Spatlase. The tastings are by appointment and the size of group is limited to about 6 due to the size of the tasting room. Worth the stop however, especially if you are a rose or riesling lover--also Johannes is very knowledgeable and provides a very interesting discussion of winemaking and other items!!
