WINE INFORMATION

Lakewood Farm is located on the west side of Seneca Lake, with east-facing slopes gently leading down to the shores. Owned and operated by the Stamp family since 1951, the vineyard’s first grapes were sold to Welch's Grape Juice Company in 1955.  As the economic climate for small commercial grape producers became challenging, the Stamps took the next step and began producing and selling wine made from their grapes.

As the wines produced at Lakewood Vineyards gained recognition, so did the acreage in grapes increase—from 45 in 1988 to 80 in production today, with 10 newly planted. Lakewood Farm is still the main source of grapes for Lakewood Vineyards wines growing 15 different varieties. Currently, the vineyards are tendered practicing careful management of the vines and land, with a focus on sustainable practices, including composting, mulching and use of cover crops.

Grapes for this wine come from the Gogliotti vineyard on the west side of Seneca Lake. The wine is aged in a combination of old and new barrels for 9 months. 459 cases produced.
