Leidenfrost Vineyards Reviews
Finger lake white wines in the German tradition are on full display here on the East shore of Seneca Lake. The tasting room is well-designed and the host the day we were there was a real showman. Don'... more »
Real time review... We have been to five wineries today and Leidenfrost was the best so far, hands down. The wines were good and the bartenders were fantastic. Connor and Bethany made the difference b... more »
Good winery in the finger lakes region of upstate new York. We really liked their wines. They have a white port wine which is a desert wine that is very rarely found outside France. The view of Lake Seneca from their tasting deck is fantastic. The sommelier was very knowledgeable. It's a family run winery and they were gracious hosts. The tastings were conducted very nicely. They gave us just the right amount of information and explanation without overwhelming us. Lovely place definitely worth a visit!
Wonderful winery, sometimes missed but should be visited. Dog friendly ( a plus in my book), very nice wines and friendly service. The young lady (Nicole) working the tasting room was knowledgable and very friendly. The port is one of my favorites this year. The love the family has for wine shows. Lovely view and wonderful tasting room.
