Wine Tastings

Wine tastings include a guided tasting of any 6 of our available wines plus an engraved wine glass to keep.

Reservations are highly recommended.

Walk-ins are always welcome on a first come, first served basis. If we're unable to accommodate you and your party for a tasting, we offer glasses & bottles of wine, mimosas, and snacks at our outdoor seating- weather permitting. 

As a business that sells alcohol, we take the responsibilities that come with that very seriously. Please be aware that if you are visibly intoxicated, or state that you are intoxicated, we are legally required to decline to serve you alcohol.

All of our wines are available for purchase either in-person or via curbside pickup. If you would like to order wine for curbside pickup please call the tasting room at (607)546-2800 or email us at leidenfrostvineyards@gmail.com at least an hour before the projected pick up time.
