Lakeshore Winery is owned and operated by John and Annie Bachman, who purchased the property in June of 1994 from the winery's founders, Bill and Doris Brown. The winery first opened to the public in 1982, making it one of the oldest on Cayuga Lake. For the past 26 years, John and Annie have continued the traditions established by the Browns. Essentially those traditions mean making a variety of wines of the highest quality; providing a fun, relaxed, and educational tasting room experience; and having a good time doing it.
The winery is located on a farm that dates back to 1825. All of our wines are produced and bottled on site, using only Finger Lakes grapes. The original barn provides a unique setting for receiving visitors, with a spectacular view of the lake. There is a dock for boaters to visit the winery.
We welcome you to Lakeshore and hope you enjoy your visit and enjoy our wines. Please come again - and bring your friends!
