Studying wine grapes in their natural habitat is much more enjoyable than exploring the dank, melancholy caverns of root beer's namesake. Stroll through blissful vineyards with this Groupon.

Guests can sample pours of five wine varietals. Choices include Apple Jack Russell, a white wine with fresh green-apple essence; and blush wine infused with watermelon essence. Beyond fruit essence wines, the winery also offers two reds, two whites, and a rosé.
On hayride tours, guests can savor the sunshine as they gaze at the groves of evergreen and deciduous trees, ducks swimming atop a glistening pond, and rows upon rows of young grapevines that populate the third-generation farm and vineyard. Hayride tours last about 30 minutes and take place on Saturday and Sunday at 1 p.m., 2 p.m., and 3 p.m.
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.
