Leyden Farm & Winery
For three generations, Christmas trees perfumed the grounds at Leyden Farm & Winery. In 2010, though, the Leyden family became interested in fruit-essence wines and planted strawberries, blueberries, and grapevines amidst the trees, becoming partners with a love for farming and wine. The fruit from the trees they grew eventually became red wines such as Romeo's Red and Samson's Merlot, white wines such as Cleo's Blanc and Sunny's Grigio, or fruit varieties such as Apple Jack Russell or Samson's Wild Berry. Today, visitors to the sixty-acre family farm can enjoy bites of fruit and cheese complemented by tastes of smooth, complex merlot; crisp white wine laced with green apple; or a blush wine infused with fresh-watermelon essence.
