The Oakes Family has a decades-long history of ties to agriculture and the land in the northwest corner of Orleans County. In 2003, they planted their first wine grapes. From that initial planting of six acres and fourteen varieties has evolved what is known today as Leonard Oakes Estate Winery. Their endeavor is named in honor of their 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 them with one of the few remaining untapped viticultural resources in the world.
