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.

They have a great selection and do a great job of filling in details when tasting. The place was packed when we were there. There was a bus full of college kids and things started getting a little silly. Dropped bottle of wine and then some of them started opening bottles inside. The staff handled it with class. Polite and... More

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

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.
