Celebrating the Hudson Valley Wine & Food Fest 2023 participating wineries
Born in Zell Mosel, Germany, winemaker Hans Peter Weis grew up in the vineyards and cellar of his family winery, where he gained his passion for wine. Continually learning and working with his family to learn the techniques and traditions of the Mosel, once he was of age he furthered his education by receiving his degree in wine-making, business and agriculture.
After university, he decided it was time to travel away from home and gain experience in various wine regions. This is how he ended up finding his way to the Finger Lakes region of New York just a few short years later.
It is here that he met his wife Ashlee, a native of the Finger Lakes. Ashlee grew up enjoying the beautiful area surrounding Keuka Lake and returned after receiving a degree in business. She also began working within the wine industry shortly after returning to the area.
In the spring of 2016, Peter and Ashlee decided to take the leap and start their own winery, opening up Weis Vineyards.
The first harvest for Weis Vineyards was in the fall of 2016, with the tasting room opening and the first vintage being released in the spring of 2017. For the first few years, Peter and Ashlee utilized a quaint one-room schoolhouse to provide personalized tasting to everyone that visited them.
Since then, Weis has expanded their tasting space with a beautiful new tasting room addition overlooking Keuka Lake, as well as renovating the barn on the property. Peter and Ashlee work together to grow their dream while keeping their original vision in mind: producing delicious wine meant for everyone to enjoy.
Weis Vineyards is at 10014 Day Road, Hammondsport NY 14840. For more info, call (607) 284-4011 or email email@example.com
