Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard has been selected as one of the Wine & Spirits Magazine Top 100 Wineries of 2023. Inclusion in the Top 100 is based on the overall strength of the portfolio. This is the 13th time that Wiemer has received this honor.
The magazine writes, “The wines of these renowned producers have received the highest accolades from the magazine’s editors in the course of their 300+ blind tastings of more than 9,000 wines.”
The Fall Issue, which profiles each of the featured Top 100 Wineries, will hit shelves on October 3rd.
Alongside Wiemer, additional Top 100 wineries include Dr. Loosen, Tablas Creek, Raventos i Blanc, Corison, and Billecart Salmon among others from wine regions all over the world. “We are very proud of our team here at HJW and we continue to be grateful to the folks at Wine & Spirits Magazine for championing the Finger Lake Region, and are honored to be in such great company with fellow Top 100 Wineries, ” says Wiemer co-owner, Oskar Bynke.
Wiemer’s top-scoring wines include the 2017 Cuvée Brut (94 points), 2021 Riesling Reserve Dry (94 points), and the 2021 Flower Day Riesling (93 points). These are among 12 Wiemer wines that scored over 90 points.
The magazine adds, “we will host our 20th Annual Top 100 Tasting on Thursday, October 11, 2023. W&S has invited the 100 wineries who’ve performed at the very top of our tastings for a night of food, wine and celebration. The evening offers a chance to taste a vast array of exceptional wines, as well as an opportunity to meet winemakers face-to-face.” As in the past, the event will also support NY/NJ Baykeeper and San Francisco Baykeeper.
