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!

During the winter months, we welcome walk-ins for wine tasting on a first-come, first served basis- NO RESERVATION REQUIRED!
However, due to Covid 19 restrictions, we are operating at reduced capacity and limiting the amount of wine tastings at one time. This means that if the tasting bar is full, we may not be able to serve you immediately upon arrival.
The cost for tasting is $10 PER PERSON for 6 wines of the taster’s choice, a choice of snack and a monogrammed wineglass 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) or would simply like to be guaranteed a tasting, reservations 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 and Salami available for purchase!

All of our wines are available for sale by the bottle in the tasting room and customers are welcome to purchase wine or pre-order wine for CURBSIDE PICKUP. Please call the tasting room at (607)546-2800 during business hours or email leidenfrosvineyards@gmail.com to arrange for curbside pickup.
You can also have wine SHIPPED right to your door from our online store at https://www.leidenfrostwine.com/store.html! We ship to MOST states!

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

Wine tasters and customers will be REQUIRED to wear face coverings (such as a cloth or PPE mask) when entering the tasting room, using or waiting for the restroom and waiting in line at checkout. Once they are seated in their designated tasting spot or have settled at their table, customers are then welcome to remove the masks and enjoy their wine and snacks! Customers are asked to make use of the hand sanitizing stations located throughout the facility and please respect the 6 foot social distancing measures in place.
