Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“Beautiful Setting, Excellent Wine, and Friendly Service”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

I stopped by here for a tasting while we were on vacation at Seneca Lake. The woman who served myself and a few others was super friendly and helpful. Everyone else who worked at Lakewood seemed to really enjoy being there and made customers feel comfortable. There were 2 different "flights" to choose from depending on your tastes, but our server offered us some additional choices as well. I especially liked the Semi-dry Riesling and Amber Rose. I liked that they offered my teenage daughter a glass of grape juice. Their chocolate lab stopped by to say hello as well. Of the 3 different wineries I stopped at near Seneca Lake this one was my favorite!

“Wine tasting at Lakewood Vineyard”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

We visited Lakewood Vineyards based on reviews here at TripAdvisor. The staff was very friendly, fun, and informative. We sampled a large selection of wines which were all delicious. We were surprised at the aromas of the wine...very grapey! When you pay for the tasting, the charge for tasting can be applied to a purchase...which we did. We would have liked to "tour" the vineyard as well but they don't do that yet. The grape vines can be seen from the parking lot and their building. It is a family business and you can see that everyone puts their heart into it. When we go back to the finger lakes, we will return to Lakewood VIneyards as well.

“friendly with good wines”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

We only had time to visit one winery on the way up to Niagara falls and picked Lakewood based on the reviews. They had a great view, a rinkydink playground the kids could play on, picnic tables overlooking the lakes. The staff was friendly, they had really nice whites (dry riesling is awesome!). There is a $2 fee for tasting (5 wines) that you get credited back if you purchase wine.

“"Great Wine"”
Reviewed 14 May 2013

My husband and I went up to Corning, NY to visit the Glass Museum and the Curtiss Wright Museum and, of course, tour the wineries. We visited a few wineries, and Lakewood, once again was our favorite. We have been to the Finger Lakes region once before and done the wine trail, but we always end up with tons of bottles of Lakewood wine. The staff, the view and even their family dogs are tops. Will be planning another trip in the fall, and of course, Seneca Lake and Lakewood will be our first stop.

“Spring Cheese and Wine”
Reviewed 4 May 2013

We attended the Finger Lakes Wine Trail Cheese and Wine Event on April 26th. We visited 6 wineries, and Lakewood was by far, the best. Welcoming, friendly, clean. But by far also the best wine tasting. It was the only winery we purchased a bottle of everything we tasted, and then some. Thanks for making our event enjoyable! Can't wait to come back and see you!
