Staff Pick Notes

There is a reason that the Hermann J. Wiemer Semi-Dry Riesling has been staff picked multiple times over the years, its a stellar bottle of wine. The Wiemer family has been making wine in the village of Bernkastel in the Mosel region of Germany for over 300 years. Founded in 1979, Hermann started making wine on the western slopes of Seneca Lake in the New York Finger Lakes region. The cool climate, gravelly soils and moderating influence of water were similar to his families vines in Mosel.
