Hello Podcast Listeners! In this episode of Wine and Dime, I have the pleasure of talking to two people from one of my favorite wineries on Seneca Lake… Lakewood Vineyards!! I chat with Brand Manager Erin, and Partner Liz. They took the time out of their busy schedules to talk with us about their fantastic Winery. We chat about the early years and how they became involved with vineyard and about how the Vineyard has really become a family legacy. I think you will enjoy this episode as much as I enjoyed talking to them. So sit back, uncork a bottle of your favorite Lakewood Wine, and enjoy the show!

In 1951, the Stamp family moved to Lakewood Farm, a run-down peach and apple orchard on the west side of Seneca Lake. The next spring, they started planting grapes. The original grapes were those favored by the large wineries and grape juice companies. In the mid-80’s the family diversified to add some new varieties, with the hope of someday using them to make their own wines.
In 1988, Monty and Beverly Stamp and their children pressed the grapes for their first vintage.
A Vision Realized
Lakewood Vineyards Winery opened to the public in June 1989 with 7 varieties of wine, made from estate-grown grapes from their 45 acres of vineyards.
Today, with 80 acres of vineyards and 3 Stamp family generations working together, the winery produces a diverse selection of wines. Their dedicated and talented team prides themselves on offering Finger Lakes wines of exceptional quality and value.
Bracingly dry, yet dancing with sweet aromas of peach, pear and lime peel. This wine was grown, fermented and blended by 3 generations of the Stamp family working together.
