We didn't stay here long but my husband and I only had Sangria and a Mimosa. Both were excellent. Outside decking needs some work but the view is great and we loved that we could bring our dog.

We enjoyed Leidenfrost Vineyards so much that we returned for a second visit. The service was friendly and helpful - and the wine was excellent. The view from the balcony deck is lovely.

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

Went to Leidenfrost because Wine Spectator rated their 2015 and 2016 dry riesling super high. They had none to taste or sell. They had mediocre wines and horrible wine slushes that the staff was liberally drinking. Person pouring for us was chugging a rose straight...More

We highly recommend Leidenfrost Vineyards. We visited 37 wineries, and this one was one of the very best! Part of it was the wines--of course. We purchased several bottles. (Two years ago we visited, and I got locked in their bathroom! Not a negative, we...More
