Vineyard Manager Dave Stamp began working at Lakewood shortly after he began to walk, and he quickly realized he had the aptitude and desire for life as a farmer. After college, Dave returned to work with his father, gradually expanding the acreage and selection as the winery’s need for grapes swelled.
Today, Lakewood Farm includes 80 acres of grapes from 15 varieties, including Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir. The high-quality fruit from Lakewood has produced numerous award-winning wines. Recognized as a leader in the industry, Dave has often been cited in such national, regional and local publications as The Wall Street Journal, Wine Country Magazine and the Democrat and Chronicle.
