Landry Vineyards was established in 1999 in Folsom, Louisiana by Jeff, Libby, and their four sons: Ethan, Kohen, Noah, and Micah along with the loving labor of family and friends. The first grape vines planted were two acres of a French-American hybrid wine grape, Blanc Du Bois. Landry Vineyards was licensed as a Louisiana Native Winery in 2002. Soon after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, the Landry’s used the storm opportunity to relocate to north Louisiana where soil, hills and climate are more suitable to growing wine grapes. They now reside in the beautiful hill country of West Monroe, Louisiana on a 52-acre site with a new winery, vineyards, beautiful tasting room, cottages, and camper sites, as well as live music events in the Spring and Fall.
Landry Vineyards is committed to growing wine grapes that are suitable to North Louisiana growing conditions with approximately 16 acres of wine grapes in production producing 50-70 tons per year. Wine grape varieties grown at Landry Vineyards include Blanc Du Bois, Lenoir/Black Spanish, Norton, and red and white Muscadines. Landry Vineyards has 23 different wines to choose from including Dry Whites and Reds, Semi-Sweet White and Reds and Port wines. Landry Vineyards also purchases high quality wine grapes from California to produce premium hand-crafted barrel aged wines. Landry Vineyards produces more than 200,000 bottles of wine annually.
Expanding their offerings, Landry Vineyards now also features one of Louisiana’s newest disc golf courses. This 9-hole course meanders through the vineyard, providing a scenic and engaging experience for visitors. Enhancing their visitors’ experience, discs are conveniently available for sale in the tasting room, inviting both seasoned players and newcomers to the sport.
Landry Vineyards is a key player in Louisiana’s growing agritourism industry, known for its commitment to quality wine production and promoting the state’s wine culture. The addition of the disc golf course adds a unique dimension to the vineyard, making it a versatile destination for various interests.
Owners, Jeff and Libby Landry, remain grateful to many supporters throughout Louisiana and beyond, for more than 20 years of success through many adversities, all by the Grace of God!
