Lakewood Vineyards is located in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of New York. 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.

When you meet the people at Lakewood you instantly know why their wine is so good - they care about the product and have a wonderful understanding for how good wine is made. We did an entertaining wine tasting that paired wines of similar consistency. We had to walk out with bottles of each - they were just too good.... More

Be sure to stop here! The staff is almost all family and they bring their cute dogs! The wine is wonderful and reasonable as well!

We truly appreciate your recommendation to stop at Lakewood and try our wines. We are lucky to bring our dogs to work with us. When our children were small we brought them and now they are an integral part of our team. We hope you will stop and see us again soon. Cheers! More

We stopped here to do a tasting and were not disappointed. We were greeted warmly when we entered and offered a friendly and informative (and sometimes amusing!) tasting. They are a family owned and operated place, but you can tell they love their job and love to share their enthusiasm with people. We were able to pick 5 wines for... More

Thank you for your nice review of Lakewood Vineyards. We enjoy our jobs and especially pouring for people who appreciate our wines. The Port glass came in today and we plan to bottle the 2014 next week. We are sorry to disappoint your husband and so many others by being out of Port, but it sold more quickly than ever... More

The winery (at least the room they do the tastings in) is nothing to look at (it reminds me of a dated bar). However, they were VERY organized. When you walk in the front door they ask if you are there for a tasting and then show you where to go. They waited until there were enough people (didn't take... More

I appreciate your review and am glad you were pleased with your tasting at Lakewood Vineyards. Chad does a terrific job and is involved in many aspects of our business, from the vineyards through the bottling process. He understands the wines and how they are produced.

Tasting room staff very friendly and helpful. Very knowledgeable about the local wine scene - as a visitor from the Niagara Region of Ontario surrounded by vineyards, it was great to compare similarities and differences while speaking with staff.

It sounds like the wine you purchased was Abby Rose. It is tasty by itself, and makes a delicious Sangria as well. I am sorry we didn't have the red you like best. Thank you for the review and we look forward to your next visit to Lakewood Vineyards. Have a great summer. More
