"Hazy light yellow in color. Lovely tangerine and melon aromas, along with white pepper and spring herbs. Wonderfully bright and juicy on the palate of Meyer lemon, ripe melon and grapefruit pith. An intriguing, attractive note of leather lingers on the incredibly long, earthy finish. Complex, and boldly pushes the limits of what Riesling can be. ~ JW

In 2013, Bloomer Creek purchased a vineyard, abandoned for over 30 years, on the east side of Seneca Lake. The high rocky hillside was planted to eight acres of vines; Riesling, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Vinified from extended skin-contact and spontaneously fermented in stainless-steel, this 2017 Riesling Reserve is a compelling interplay between minerality and sumptuous fruit. Unfined and unfiltered, with minimal S02 only at bottling. Barrow in Old Norse means high rocky hill and burial mound.

Bloomer Creek Vineyard

View all from Bloomer Creek Vineyard
Bloomer Creek VineyardIn 1982 Kim Engle and Deb Bermingham purchased a 30-acre farm in the Finger Lakes region, 10 acres of which they planted to a variety of cool climate grapes. They named the vineyard Bloomer Creek and for the last three decades they have meticulously farmed it using organic methods.
They employ no herbicides, no irrigation, fruit is hand-harvested, and only natural native yeasts are used for fermentation. They often utilize whole clusters in their winemaking, including the whites, extended lees aging, and they allow fermentations to progress at their own rate without using temperature control.
In a part of the world where winemakers don't often take risks, Bloomer Creek seems afraid not to and the results are wonderful. Both their whites and their reds are incredibly distinctive, age-worthy and expressive of the place and time in which they were produced. That place is the Finger Lakes, and Bloomer Creek may be the single most unique, and compelling voice in town.
