This Local Vineyard Is A Grape Place For Your Next Girls' Day Out In The OS
Wine A Little, Laugh A Lot
We’ve done the Rhody vineyard thing (from Sakonnet in Little Compton and Diamond Hill in Cumberland to Verde Vineyards in Johnston) over the years, but somehow missed out on this place…until now.
If you live for local wine culture and tastings with your BFF’s (including four-legged ones…because dogs are apparently welcome to tag along), then you’ll want to scope out Leyden Farm Vineyard + Winery in West Greenwich.
A friend of the blog recently spent an afternoon there as part of a weekend long birthday celebration, and she couldn’t say enough great and gushy things about it. #SoGrapefulForThisWine
Be Kind, Re-Wine
Leyden started out as a Christmas tree farm - as in Big John Leyden’s Tree Farm, one of the biggest in Southern New England - but has since pivoted to include a 2nd act as a vineyard and winery. Beyond grapes, they also grow the strawberries and blueberries that go into the making of their fruit wines. Today, you can go to sample, sip, and purchase their reds, whites, and fruit varieties, all whilst sitting back and enjoying the charming, scenic views of the WG.
This Wine Pairs Nicely With Good Friends
And you can purchase tickets for any of their weekly wine tastings via EventBrite.com, right from your phone. What’s easier than that? Because who doesn’t have their phone handy 24/7 these days, right? (True Story: I went to an event over the winter and actually had to go in person to an office to buy tickets. Can you say annoying and inconvenient?!?)
They’re open Thursday thru Sunday, from 12noon to 5pm. For additional details about their hours and events, for you and your partners in wine, check out LeydenFarm.com.
