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

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

I watched the video on Finger Lakes Winery website. The winery looked neat and good. It's small inside. The staff was friendly and helpful. It's $5 per tastings of 5 or 6 wines. The reds and whites were not that great. It doesn't mean that...More
