Our arrival at Leyden Farm Winery was delayed for almost an hour by an incident on I-95 in Providence so we didn’t get there early enough to participate in a tasting or wine by the glass. However we were in time to present our Harvest Hosts membership card and get instructions as to where to park as well as to purchase a chilled bottle of Strawberry Fields to enjoy at our pond side home for the evening. Leyden’s in West Greenwich, Rhode Island has been a family owned Christmas tree farm for generations and more recently the crops have included grapes and other fruits they incorporate into their wines. Although it would have been fun to sip wine amid the camaraderie of the people gathered here on a Sunday afternoon, we truly enjoyed the pastoral setting for the sharing of a refreshing libation. Life is good.
