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.

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 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.

They have a great selection and do a great job of filling in details when tasting. The place was packed when we were there.

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
