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.

Nice tasting, quick and free if buying wine

We usually stop at 3 - 4 vineyards a day during a weekend visit. This one was very friendly and good explanations. Bought a few bottles. Would probably visit again.

Lakewood is always one our favorite stops. The Abbey Rose and Niagara wines are great picks if you like the semi-sweets. The wine varies greatly with every season so branch out and try something different if your favorite tastes a little off one year. Ahh La Cart Food truck is onsite which makes the stop that much better. Our sommelier... More

Thank you for recommending Lakewood Vineyards as a "must stop" on the Seneca Lake Wine Trail. We work hard to make good wines each year, and try to have a variety of wines to suit most tastes. The Abby Rose and Niagara are some of our best sellers, and we make a range of award winning Rieslings, a dynamite Chardonnay... More

We stopped here first on a short winery tour. Staff was super nice and friendly and very knowledgeable. You pay 2$ per person for a tasting flight and get a wooden nickel. You use that as voucher for money off any purchase you make. We toured vineyards out back, kids loved the short hike and loved seeing the grapes. We... More

This is my favorite winery in the Finger Lakes. I've been there twice and every wine I have tried I have liked. They are well balanced. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. The tasting fee is waived when you make a purchase. I wish I lived closer, I'd be there more often.

Strictly a winery, no restaurant here. A super deal for a tasting $2 for 5 wines your choice of sweet or dry flights with a token good for $2 off a bottle of wine. The service was great and it was a very friendly atmosphere.

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
