Wine and Garden shop
The heart of the winery is the wine and garden shop. The shop is focusing on offering products like vegetables, honey, chocolate, handcrafts, fruit from our local producers, and of course Lepaa's own tomatoes and other vegetables from the garden, depending on the season. The wine shop has the whole selection of wines and ciders produced in the premises.
From the café you can take a lift upstairs and learn about the history of horticulture in the Garden Museum.
Shop opening times
During the winter period the shop is closed, but as the production side is running year round we have attached a doorbell to the shop by the door so just ring the bell and we are happy to make business with you. Or if you are coming from a distance you can give us a call + 358 3 646 5227 to ensure that someone will be there to help you.
Small Cafe & Wine bar and Garden Museum
There is a small cafe and wine bar in the shop. If you find something interesting from the shop you can have a small tasting glass of that particular wine – or you can enjoy the whole bottle on our sunny patio.
Upstairs there is a Garden Museum, presenting the history of horticulture in Finland.
Handmade wines, ciders and liquors
The main principle in our wine production is from the field to the bottle, meaning that we grow most of the fruits and berries in our own farm. Some berries are bought from the local farmers or they are wild berries from the forest, but everything is always 100% Finnish. All the production is done in our own premises; juicing, fermenting, maturing, bottling.
The first apple trees have been planted at Lepaa perhaps alredy in the 17th century. Still today apple is one of our main ingredient in our wines. Our ever most popular wine, Lepaan Anna, is made of our apples and white currants. We make lots of wine from currants; white, black, green, and red as they are also grown in Lepaa and in the area.
From our own raspberry and quince fields we get the wonderful raw material for our liqueurs, Lepaan Vadelmainen and Lepaan Ruusuinen.
The rich history of Lepaa is kept alive in our wines, as we have named most of the wines after the colourful personalities living their lives in Lepaa as Lepaan Anna, Lepaan Elina, Packalen, Pomologi Heikel, Lepaan Sofia. There is still more to come.
