A working grape farm since 1951, the winery was established in 1988. Almost 2 decades later, with over 675 awards, we continually produce fine wines and mead, and present these wines in the inviting, friendly tasting room. We are family friendly and encourage you to enjoy the view of Seneca Lake while strolling through our vineyards or picnicking in our lawn. « less

About 4 miles up the western side of Lake Seneca, Lakewood stands out as a vineyard with good wine and a great view of the lake. Perched on the hillside, the tasting room is set by a window with the vines descending to the Lake beyond. A spirited and knowledgeable cadre of pourers enliven the tasting process for a group...

We have been stopping at Lakewood for nearly 10 years. Even if we are touring an adjacent lake my wife and I make it a point to stop there. Simply put they offer quality wine at a reasonable price. Always fun. Don't hesitate to ask for an additional tasting or two if you think you may enjoy them and they... More

Lakewood has great wines and entertaining pourers. Since it is not in the middle of the lake, I feel this winery is overlooked. We stop here every time we go the Finger Lakes.

Thanks to Norrie we had the best time EVER! OMG - we couldn't have asked for a better "Wine Wench". She was both knowledgeable and fun and actually took me out of my comfort zone and had me taste wines I normally would not! The wines were good as you can imagine as we are now members of the case...

Lakewood was a nice stop on our wine tasting for the day. There were two different tasting selections to choose from. I tried one and my wife tried the other.Tastings were $2 but waived if you bought a bottle. The wines tended to be on the sweeter side but there were a couple of drier ones. The wine was affordable... More

Thank you for stopping in to Lakewood Vineyards. We appreciate your candid feeback. We feature 10 wines at a time for our tastings. The driest wines are not always our featured wines depending on the season and inventory. We try to suit visitors tastes should they mention they prefer only dry selections. We have 2 white wines and 3 reds... More

Go here and try out their wine. You won't regret it! This place had the most affordable wine of the eight wineries we explored in two days. The people were helpful and friendly! Their wines pleased me as a dry red drinker and my husband as a sweet white drinker!

Lakewood is our first and last stop on our yearly trip to the Finger Lakes. It's a perfect place to begin vacation after the drive from Maryland.

I actually had decided to stop tasting and pick up a particular bottle of wine for a friend. Well... After entering decided to taste Lakewoods selection. I enjoyed the wines and the woman who assisted us through was so friendly. I ended up buying several bottles and love that they refund your tasting fee if you buy wines. Great way... More
