16-Acre Landry Vineyards in Louisiana—The Ultimate Wine Countryside Getaway
A 16-acre wine vineyard in Louisiana? Yes! Landry Vineyards has been making wine from grapes grown on their first vineyard in Folsom, Louisiana since 1999. Now located in West Monroe, when you rent a cabin in the hilly countryside (two cabins are available for renting), you get lovely accommodations, a wonderful view, wine tasting and a complimentary bottle of wine.
Jeff and Libby Landry and their four sons planted their first two acres of French-American grapes in 1999 on property in Folsom, Louisiana. After Hurricane Katrina, the Landry's moved the vineyard to north Louisiana.
Landry's Vineyards is located in the hills of West Monroe, Louisiana. The entire vineyard is on 50 acres and includes a "new winery, vineyards, beautiful tasting room, cottages and camper sites", according to landryvineyards.com.
The website onlyinyourstate.com says Landry wine varieties include Blanc Du Bois, Lenoir/Black Spanish and Crimson Cabernet.
A weekend in one of the two cottages on the property may be the most romantic and peaceful getaway in the state.
Situated on the rolling hills of West Monroe, the cabins are directly across from the vineyards. Mornings are breathtaking as you take your cup of coffee outdoors to a stunning view. The Landry's call this the "grape escape".
