New York State’s Finger Lakes region is home to a rapidly burgeoning world-renowned winemaking industry, and Miller Mayer attorneys have successfully secured temporary work visas and green cards for some of the area’s oldest and most established winemakers and vineyards.

In the last year alone, several local wine growers have been prominently featured in Wine Enthusiast, International Wine Review, Travel and Leisure, Forbes, Sommelier International, and Travel and Leisure magazines. In January 2019, wine blog Vine Pair named the Finger Lakes one of the ten best wine travel destinations.

Over the past 20 years, Miller Mayer immigration attorney Rosanne Mayer has completed immigration matters for several vineyards in the Finger Lakes region. These filings have included temporary work visas for vineyard managers, winemakers and viticulturists in the specialty occupation H-1B, extraordinary ability O-1, and Australian professional E-3 categories.

She has also filed several successful green card petitions for vineyard managers, winemakers, and viticulturists, obtaining  permanent labor certification and immigrant visa petitions in the exceptional ability, professional, and skilled worker categories.
