“This place was phenomenal! Every single staff member was extremely personable, knowledgeable, and professional all at the same time! One of the most accommodating places my wife and I have ever stepped foot in. Could not have asked for a better experience with their wine tasting and make your own package, definitely worth the money. And to top it off, their wines are fantastic! Very pleased, would absolutely recommend and will definitely be back!” – Dec 16, 2018 (Customer since Nov 2018)

“30 of us celebrated our friend’s 50th birthday with wine tasting. We brought plenty of snacks and had a great time. The setup, atmosphere and service were awesome. The staff was very accommodating and pleasant to work with. We plan to do it again sometime in the future. Lakeland Winery is a best kept secret that others must experience.” – T.O. 12/1/2014
