The Oakes Family has a 90 year history of ties to agriculture and the land in the northwest corner of Orleans County. In 2003 we planted our first wine grapes. From that initial planting of six acres and fourteen varieties has evolved what is known today as Leonard Oakes Estate Winery.
Our new endeavor is named in honor of our founder, the first of what is now four generations to farm some of the same land. The unique and fertile soils left behind by the glaciers of the last ice age combined with a climate moderated by the gentle breezes and deep waters of Lake Ontario provide us with one of the few remaining untapped viticultural resources in the world. We invite you to taste the fruit of our efforts as we attempt to marry modern winemaking skills to the best of both old and new world grapes in our latest family venture.
