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

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. Lakewood wines are excellent, but what makes this place so special are the people who own it and work in the the tasting room. They treat you like friends, and because it is... More

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

Heading north from Watkins Glen this is the first Winery stop on the west side of Seneca Lake. A red or white tasting option is offered. The two sisters doing the tasting pours were excellent...friendly, relaxed, and providing interesting commentary on each of the wines. That was much different than many of the other wineries we were to encounter. With... More

This was our last stop on our wine tour, and our favorite. It was a nice size...not too big, not too small. They had 2 options for tastings; my companion tried one and I tried the other. Someone next to us was interested in sampling sparkling, so we also benefitted from their interest. Our favorite thing there was the Sparkling... More
