New World Grand Champion
We're celebrating here at Chateau L. Reneau. We took home this years 2012, Grand Champion at Jerry Mead New World International Wine Competition —one of the most prestigious wine judging contests in the USA. Our 2010 Dry Riesling won:
"NEW WORLD GRAND CHAMPION"
"Best New World White Wine;" "Best New World Riesling"
We couldn't be more thrilled and thankful to everyone here who helped make this possible. We'd also like to take our hats off to our friends and fellow vintners who also made distinguished showings at the competition, lending more weight to the undisputed fact that the state of New York is a new world class wine producing region!
We were in double blind competitions against wineries in the, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, South America, and West Coast wineries such as: Barefoot Cellars, Korbel, Sutter Home and Gallo, just to name a few. Of all entries, NY vintners together out medal'd all other states and countries!
Extremely fine quality!
Thanks to the quality grapes from 2009 harvest and to the talents of our winemaker, Chateau Lafayette Reneau’s 2010 Dry Riesling has exceeded our expectations. And our Cabernet Sauvignon Owner's Reserver remains one of New York's finest Cabernets and one of the United States premiere reds!
The 2012 winter here in the Banana Belt of Seneca Lake was excellent, no bud or vine damage. Blossoms on the vines are big, luscious and numerous! We anticipate an excellent harvest this year.

As some of you may have already read or heard we lost our beloved mascot Jenny this past winter. She enjoyed a wonderfully long and happy life with an adoring fan club from 1995 to 2011. Bruno joined the winery in February 2012. He's been a wonderful addition to our family and already making friends with our guests! See more pictures of Bruno>>
