History

In 2005, Syracuse wine enthusiast Andy Watkins established Lakeland Winery as the first custom winemaking facility in New York State. We invite you to tour the winery and experience what making your own wine is all about.

Making Your Own Wine at Lakeland Winery

Creating and personalizing your very own wine with us is full of advantages over making wine at home.

First

We have trained experts to walk you through the process.

Second

No need to buy your own winemaking equipment. We provide everything you need. Our prices include the juice concentrate kit for the wine, bottles, corks, caps, filters and labels.

Now it’s your turn to move beyond simple wine tasting by learning all there is to know about the winemaking process.

Third

The Custom Winemaking experience at Lakeland Winery is a communal effort with groups, couples and individuals coming in to taste and choose custom wines together—you instantly become part of our family.

Fourth

We accommodate large groups who want to taste and make wine. Move beyond simple wine tasting by learning all there is to know about the winemaking process.

Don’t forget to share a bottle of your very own custom wine with someone you love!

If you’re looking for a reason to get away for an hour or so, give yourself a break and bring a group of friends. Live it up and enjoy life. Winemaking is adventuresome and educational.
