Overview
More
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.

Thank you for the nice review. The Lakewood staff is great. They all enjoy the wines and sharing them with others. Candeo is one of my favorite choices when it is time to unwind and for celebrations. I hope you will come visit again soon.

Thank you for the review. Our latest additions to the winery have included more windows to capture the view. Our new outdoor tasting bar just opened last weekend which affords a fantastic view while tasting. Hoping you visit again soon.

We stop here every time we do Seneca Lake. We skip some, but not this one. I think their Riesling and their Vignoles are wonderful. And prices are fair. If you do a tasting, they will credit the price towards your purchase. The outside has...More

I am sorry to hear that your tasting experience was not what you had hoped. The volume of tasters who visit at any given time varies as we don't require appointments for groups of fewer than 12 tasters. We attempt to help people taste without...More

Very nice wine tasting. You pay $3 to taste a flight of wine but you could use that $3 off a bottle of wine. Was able to get 2 bottles of wine for under $12. Very professional and friendly staff. Grounds were beautiful.

This winery has predominantly white wines, but the reds are good and the bubbly is fantastic! The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Very enjoyable winery and great prices!

Note: While I enjoy Lakewood's wine, this rating is not based on the wine since everyone has different tastes. Lakewood is a larger winery and busier than others - which I guess is a good sign, but I prefer the smaller, quieter wineries. I also...More

We had never visited a winery before or had a tasting experience. The people here were knowelegable and friendly. They even have two friendly and wonderful labradors walking around. They have tasting flights for every pallat both sweet, dry and a bit of both.
