  • I loved the wines, they had dryer selections for my wife, and more middle of the road selections for myself. The wine stewards were also very knowledgable and not pushy. A bit of a drive from Rocheste...  more »
  • Nice winery-lots of space. Large tasting bar. The staff seemed knowledgeable and was friendly. We appreciated the young lady taking a photo of our group of 8 near the Christmas Tree.  more »
  • Our first visit to the Finger Lakes with our pup Riesling and we kicked off day 2 at Lakewood. Poked my head in the door to confirm that they were dog friendly and got a quick yes and they let me know...  more »

  • Like other reviews, the staff here are amazing. I went with a friend of mine and we met Ben. He took the time out of his very busy schedule to give us a complete tour of the facility and grounds. It was very interesting to say the least! Wines are amazing, and even better is their port!! Forget it, it awesome. Get it while you can because it goes fast. I recommend buying a whole case.
  • Our first stop on our 2017 trip, Lakewood Vineyards is run by some very friendly and knowledgeable folks (who own some sweet, well-behaved dogs!). Wines were uniformly well-made, particularly the various selection of Rieslings and Vignoles. Some of the reds seem to lack the punch we would have expected from the 2015 and 2016 vintages, but that may just be the house style. Worth a visit when in the neighborhood!
  • My entire tasting experience was ruined by the greeter. The woman at the front who, unknown to us since she wasn’t there, walks you to the available tasting counter yelled at us. Upon arriving, we walked in and started walking to an available spot at a tasting counter. This woman came out from the room and said, “whoa!, you can’t get a tasting without going through me!, I have to take you to the counter”. She did not say it jokingly either. If there were a sign that said check in with hostess before a tasting, I could better understand but that woman completely ruined the experience. If it weren’t for the fact that I was buying a requested bottle of wine for a friend, I would have walked out immediately. The tasting room is ok and the wines are mediocre at best. I’ll never go back.
  • Very disappointed with our experience. The man who served us our wine was very sarcastic and dry and borderline rude. We usually find that personality funny but something about him ruined the experience.
  • Great view outside, $3 samples and if you buy a bottle you get $3 off. They have $9 bottles! Nice place, very nice staff-family run.
