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.

We went to Lakewood on 3/15/15 and fun was had by all. I highly recommend this winery for fun and great wines to taste. My favorite are the Catawba and finish with the best ice wine in NY State ...the Borealis. If Norie is there to pour, then have her help you as she is the best!!!

Thank you for the nice recommendation. We are so happy you had a great visit here. Norrie does a fantastic job presenting Lakewood Vineyards wines. The Catawba is one of our summertime favorites, and delicious with barbeque. You are so right that the iced wine is a great way to finish your tasting, or a meal. We hope you will... More

This was our first stop on our wine tour, and was our favorite by far. The staff was very knowledgeable about all the wines being poured. Tasting fee is $2.00 per flight, which they refund if you purchase some wine (which we did, some of the wines were quite delicious, especially the Long Stem White, and prices quite reasonable). Nice... More

Thank you for the nice review. Our tasting room family take great pleasure in pouring our wines and our winemaking crew makes delicious wines that sell themselves. Long Stem White is one of my favorites and a perfect match with Ceasar salad. We hope you will come back and visit again, and feel free to bring friends along. More

We arrived at the Finger Lakes today as part of our fall family road trip. After settling in, we wanted to make the most of what was left of our day, found this winery on Trip Advisor and went to it because of it's impressive rating. I was even more impressed that this winery is everything what the previous reviewers... More

Of all the wineries we visited on the Seneca Wine Trail, this was by far our favorite. The staff was the friendliest and most thorough we encountered all day. They only charge $2 for a tasting which includes any of their wines you are interested in. You will get $2 off any bottle if you purchase a tasting. Most places... More

Lakewood offered a sample of Iced Wine as part of the sweet wine tasting. It costs $3 for 5 tasting, but if you purchased a bottle of wine, you got your $3 back. The Iced Wine was really good, we purchased a bottle after sampling. Other wineries are missing out by not making Iced Wine part of the sampling instead... More

Loved the whites, excellent! Niagara was awesome! I really enjoyed the visit and everyone was friendly and explained the wines

Ah, Niagara...that wine captures the essence of that flavorful grape. The 2012 vintage was a big award winner too. We are happy that you enjoyed your visit and hope you will come see us again, and feel free to bring friends along. Have a great fall season. More

Not all wineries along the Seneca trail have a staff as friendly, fun and helpful as the folks at Lakewood. In fact, most don't even come close. The hostess at our tasting really made it an enjoyable event and we were very pleased with the quality of several of the wines. This is on our 'return to' list. By the... More

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!
