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.

Lakewood has been in business since the mid 80's & the family continues the work through the 3 generations that are presently running the winery. They just added a large new wing, showcasing the tank room which is visible upon your walk to the front door. They are an environmentally friendly business. Their wines are carefully crafted by Chris Stamp... More

A new addition to the winery will increase production to about 120,000 gallons a year. About 65% of its wine is so too visitors at its winery and tasting room, and the refs primarily in New York State..

Thank you for the very informative review about Lakewood Vineyards. Though we do make some sweet wines, we make as many dry and semi-dry wines. I hope you will visit again and try the dry flight of wines. Enjoy the rest of your summer. More

As everyone says, the people who work here are very nice and helpful. The tasting is cheap and they will let you taste extras at no additional charge. But the wine itself was not exciting. It was drinkable and not very expensive. So if you want a decent and cheap table wine, it's a good place to stop.

Hi Becky, Thank you for your frank remarks. I am glad you were treated nicely by our staff and I am sorry you were not impressed by the wines. In most cases people find something or several wines they truly enjoy. We hope you found wines you enjoyed at other Finger Lakes wineries. Have a nice summer. More

Lakewood is one of the nicest stops on the Seneca Wine Trail. The folks there are always friendly and welcoming and the wine is wonderful as well. Love the winery doggie as well!!! We enjoyed the Chardonnay and took several bottles home with us.

Had Jesus himself asked me which wine was my favorite I could not answer this question. THEY ALL ARE AMAZING! The employees are precious and kind, and the place is absolutely gorgeous!

Our Sommelier was fantastic and we choose a bottlle of dry Riesling. The red wines seemed a bit light bodied for our taste.

Thank you for the nice comments on your visit to Lakewood Vineyards. I am glad you enjoyed the Dry Riesling. It is delicious with many dishes (or alone) but one of my favorite foods to enjoy with it is linguini & clam sauce. Please come a visit again, and until then have a wonderful summer. More
