Leidenfrost Vineyards

Hand-crafted wines and especially great reds with a lake view!

Leidenfrost Vineyards is a small, family owned Farm-winery found in the heart of the Finger Lakes in Hector, New York. Located on the southeastern shore of Seneca Lake Leidenfrost Vineyards is an ideal micro climate to grow premium Vinifera, Labrusca and hybrid wine grapes. Featuring a wide and varied selection of wines from dry to sweet, red to white, sparkling wines and port wines! From vineyard to tasting room, this father-daughter team focuses on producing small batch, hand-crafted wines made from the best estate grown grapes in a fun and easy-going atmosphere with an incredible view of Seneca Lake!

The tasting room is currently open for wine tastings, glass and bottle sales 7 days a week from 10am to 6pm!
If you would like to be guaranteed a spot upon arrival, we highly recommend making a wine tasting reservation, especially if you have a larger group of 5-8 people.
You can do so by visiting our website at: https://www.leidenfrostwine.com/visit.html or by emailing leidenfrostbooking@gmail.com

And of course, we do still allow WALK-INS for wine tasting on a first come first serve basis.

The cost for tasting is $10 PER PERSON for 6 wines of the taster’s choice, a choice of snack and a monogrammed wine glass to keep!

We are currently accepting groups of up to 8 PEOPLE MAX and WE DO NOT ACCEPT SPLIT GROUPS. If you are traveling in a LARGER GROUP (6-8 people) we highly recommend a reservation which can be made by emailing our tasting room manager at Leidenfrostbooking@gmail.com.

All of our wines are available by the glass or by the bottle to enjoy in our gallery seating area or our deck, picnic tables and lawn (weather permitting) overlooking Seneca Lake! We also have mimosas available by the glass or pitcher as well as snacks such as cheese, crackers, salami and other locally sourced snacks available for purchase!

We are a pet friendly winery and gladly welcome all well behaved, quiet canines with a bowl of water and a biscuit!

Although many businesses have lifted mask-wearing for vaccinated individuals, because we are such a small winery, we still ask that everyone in your party wears a mask or face covering in accordance with NYS regulations when indoors unless seated.
Once your group is seated, your bartender will instruct you to remove the mask while tasting.
Masks are NOT required to enjoy a glass of wine or mimosa and check out the view from our deck or lawn-if vaccinated.
Customers are also asked to respect the 6 foot social distancing measures in place regardless of vaccination status.
Our staff is doing the utmost to ensure that our tasting room is a safe and sanitized environment for everyone to enjoy!
