      Product information


      Our one of a kind chillable red wine. Made from the historic DeChaunac grape, an old French American hybrid grape.

      Fruit from the beautiful Patrician Verona Vineyard on Cayuga Lake, these storied vines were planted in 1973. We pick the dark red fruit early, press it in to a red juice and ferment that juice on used Chardonnay skins, making this wine a sort of bridge between a light red wine and an orange wine.


      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.

      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.

      Osmote began in 2014 as a tenant winery within a bigger facility.  In 2020, we took the plunge and moved to our own 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, we drive in our own bottling trailer and bottle on site.
