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.

The servers are very friendly and know about the area. Family run winery, and some of them staff, so nice. The tasting menu is dry or sweets. I love all of them but Abby Rose was my favorite. You will love all the wines and gift shop with local chef William products, maple syrups, cheeses, etc. A must stop!!!

Stopped for a flight and the tasting table was fairly full. They had us shift down twice from where they set us up bc of new patrons coming in. A little erratic however they were just trying to serve the most people w one attendant. Two labs greeted us and hovered over the tasting area the entire time I love... More

Thank you for the nice review and I am happy you enjoyed the wine. I am sorry you were shifted down when other guests arrived. While we try to give everyone lots of attention the flow of people in the door is unpredictable. Thank you for understanding.

There are so many wineries in this region, it can be hard to figure out where to go. Luckily, we have friends who own a winery who took us around. This was my favorite of the places we visited. Excellent wine and friendly staff. There is a tasting fee, but you get it refunded if you buy a bottle.

We only had time for one winery visit and chose Lakewood because it was closest to Watkins Glen. It's a lovely property with beautiful landscaping, just a tad of a view of the lake. We thought the wine was quite good and bought some bottles. The sommelier was very friendly and it was nice to have 2 flight choices, dry... More

We drove by Lakewood winery beause it was the first one on the wine trail. Amazingly, I had to force everyone from my family to leave after a long hour of stay.
