Reservation Policy
PLEASE NOTE: Due to Covid 19 restrictions, we are now limiting the amount of wine tastings at one time and PRIORITIZING RESERVATIONS. This allows us to control the flow of people in our tasting room without compromising customer safety and social distancing requirements.
If you would like to make a reservation please visit our website https://www.leidenfrostwine.com/visit.html
Cost for tasting is $10 per person and you get to KEEP your monogrammed wineglass as a gift! We are now excited to offer a selection of pre-packaged local cheeses and other snacks for purchase to enjoy with your wine tasting!

We MAY be able to take a limited number of walk-ins for tasting, on a first come first served basis if there is space at the tasting bar upon arrival.
If you arrive and have NOT made a reservation for a tasting, please don’t hesitate to stop in or call our tasting room at (607)546-2800 to inquire as we may have space to accommodate you if our schedule is not already booked for the day!

If you did not make a tasting reservation but would still like to enjoy some delicious Leidenfrost wine on our deck or lawn, customers are welcome to do so provided there is a vacant table available or spot on the lawn that allows for adequate social distancing (at least 6 feet away) from other visitors.
