This wine keeps with the classic Osmote style you've come to expect. The wine is lightly extracted to maintain a pure sense of freshness. It captures cranberry and cherry with just an herbal touch. The oak regime is light, all 400L used French oak barrels, and gives just a hint of spice and nuttiness to the wine.

Believing it better to trust nature and the process, Ben takes a relaxed approach in the winery.  It’s not laziness or a recklessly cavalier attitude towards the craft, but instead Ben’s conviction in the potential of the Finger Lakes terroir.  He has worked around the globe in France, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, and California, collecting insights abroad, all to understand the unique greatness of these New York Finger Lakes.  

Ben has a technical winemaking degree from Cornell University and understands the science of wine, but the raw material here begs for patience, not a technocratic winemaker.  He seeks a gentler touch then, in order to develop texture alongside the bright acids of these light, ethereal wines.

The Osmote family is Ben, Brittnie and Mia, plus all the friends and family who have helped us along the way. Ben Riccardi is both winemaker and business manager. Born in the Finger Lakes, he now lives on the southern end of Seneca Lake. His work experiences include notably Willams Selyem in California, Craggy Range in New Zealand, and City Winery New York in Manhattan. Osmote began in 2014 as a tenant winery within a bigger facility. In 2020, they took the plunge and moved to a facility in Ovid, NY.  A former trucking garage, the space has been converted to a fully functioning winery full of tanks, wine presses, and barrels. During bottling season, they drive in their own bottling trailer and bottle on site.
