Hello again Wine and Dime listeners! In this episode, I have the pleasure of speaking with Becky Partridge-Eason. Becky is a financial planner with us here at Rooted Planning Group and describes herself as “frugal”. During the episode we talk about the planning of her wedding, and boy did that term “frugal” help her save a ton. If you are planning a wedding or know someone who is, this episode is for you! So sit back, enjoy a nice bottle of Lakewood Abbey Rose, and enjoy the show!
Lakewood Winery History
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.
Our best-selling sweet wine, this long-time favorite is named after our winemaker’s oldest daughter Abby. A fun, fruity wine, Abby Rose is also a great base for sangria.
