A History Rooted in Family Values
Lakewood Vineyards has an exciting past that stretches back to 1951 when the Stamp family moved to Lakewood Farms. During their first spring on the farm, they planted grapes which were eventually sold to grape juice companies. The Stamp family always dreamed of crafting their own wine though, so by the mid-80’s they begin to grow new varieties of grapes with the intention of using then for their own Vintage.
In 1988, the family pressed their own grapes and Lakewood Vineyards was born. They opened to the public the following year offering seven varieties of wine made from grapes grown on their 45-acre vineyard. Today, the winery has grown to over 80 acres offering 15 varieties of wine and is still owned and operated by three generations of the Stamp family.
