Facilities on site
Established in 1985, Leventhorpe re-introduced commercial wine-growing to Yorkshire. The five acre vineyard is situated within Leeds City boundary. Leventhorpe’s success is due to the excellent site which endows its wines with their unique character.
The low altitude, protected south-facing slope with good drainage, warm soils and low rainfall, plus the benefits of a river valley situation, make it a favourable site for winegrowing. All the wines produced at Leventhorpe are made in the vineyard in which they are grown.
The purpose built winery enables control of the wine-making process, thus preserving the wines’ unique character and identity. Leventhorpe produces a range of wines including dry whites, sparkling and a small amount of red. Leventhorpe welcomes visitors. It is open most days from noon to 3.30pm.
