A brief history
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 located in an ideal microclimate to grow premium Vinifera, Labrusca and hybrid wine grapes. We focus on producing small batch, hand-crafted wines made from the best estate-grown grapes, served in a welcoming and friendly atmosphere.
Founded in 1990, Leidenfrost Vineyards was one of the first Finger Lakes wineries to feature a broad spectrum of dry red wines, including Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Baco Noir. We also produce outstanding Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Gruner Veltliner, Sauvignon Blanc, Cayuga White, Catawba, Niagara and other flavorful white varieties. Our tasting room staff are fun, knowledgeable and dedicated to providing a unique and memorable tasting. We invite you to experience a taste of the Finger Lakes in our beautiful timber frame tasting room overlooking Seneca Lake.
