We had such fun visiting Leidenfrost. The wines were varied, original, and pretty tasty and, while it doesn't necessarily matter, we loved the labels. The ladies who helped with our tasting were so nice and definitely knew their stuff. Top it all off with a...More

I absolutely loved my experience at Leidenfrost! The views of the lake are STUNNING, the tastings are amazing and low-cost, and the sweet wines are fantastic (esp. the Pink Flamingo wine). But the best thing to try, in my opinion, is their Niagra Lemonade! It's...More

OK, first a confession: We stopped at Leidenfrost because it looked beautiful from the road - no advance research, just a spontaneous stop. Much to my delight, their Gewurztraminer was the BEST I've ever had, and I've tried several. I'm most fond of very dry...More

The first time we have came here we happened to catch the owner and he was more that gracious, allowing us to taste all the wines we were interested in. The next time we caught him again (mowing the lawn) and he joined us for...More
