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

This place has a great ice wine for a very reasonable price for an ice wine. The staff was very friendly and inviting and knowledgeable. Definitely would go back for more ice wine!

We only visited a few wineries during out stay but this was a great choice for us. The lady who let us sample the wines was so informative and humorous. She answered all of my inexperienced questions about their wines and the money we paid for samples was refunded when we bought their wonderful wine. Good time, good wine, and... More

Friendly staff at the tasting counter. Cute wine themed gift items. The Port was the best I have ever tasted. Can't wait for this winter, to drink my Finger Lakes Port in front of a warm fireplace!

Thank you for the compliments on the Port. We are so happy you enjoyed your tasting room experience at Lakewood Vineyards. We just bottled the 2013 vintage and it is just as tasty as the 2012 which is our current release. We hope you will come see us again soon. More

We enjoyed our stop here. While the ones were not my favorites, this is a nice tasting room and the staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Definitely not pushy which is plus.

This winery is awesome! My dad and I stopped here for a father-daughter wine tasting, and we had a great time! The staff was very knowledgable, and our server was funny and kind. We chose to sample the dry wines, and they were all great. 3 were white and two were red. My favorite was the Riesling and Niagara (which... More

Thank you for the terrific review. I will pass along your compliments to the winemaking staff (my husband and son) as they are crazy busy trying to finish bottling the 2013 wines in time to start picking the 2014 vintage. They appreciate that people like what they make! We love sharing our wines with visitors and try hard to be... More

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...

Thank you for the positive review of our winery. In 1951, when the Stamp family bought this property they might not have imagined people enjoying the spot so much. The winemaking team (part of the Stamp family) work every day to make delicious wines that are also affordable. We want people to enjoy Lakewood wines often! As you noted, we... More

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.

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.

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
