Welcome to Chateau LaFayette Reneau
Chateau LaFayette Reneau is honoring St. Patricks Day during the entire month of March with a flat-rate $17 case shipping special plus an additional 15% off your 12 bottle purchase!
What began as a religous feast day honoring the Patron Saint of Ireland has become an international festival celebrating Irish culture, the color green and drinking! It wasn't that long ago that finding a winery in the Emerald Isle was impossible. Now, the European Commission lists Ireland as an official wine producing country, growing a variety of grapes that include Finger Lakes favorites Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Syrah.
If you live in New York, Pennsylvania or Florida, $17 case shipping plus an additional 15% off is a deal that can't be beat!

With day and nighttime temperatures fluctuating between seasonable and far warmer than usual, the vineyards at Chateau LaFayette Reneau are well into their annual thaw. Our vineyard crew, led by longtime manager Chris and team members Matt and Scott, is hard at work. This week marks the first of the New Year when our full-time crew labors side-by-side with our indispensable migrant workers, busily pruning vines, tying down anchor wires and tightening loose posts.
Like life, farm work is both challenging and rewarding, and there is much preparation to be done in the vineyard at the start of a new season. We are excited to see what the vintage brings us.
For over 30 years, Chateau LaFayette Reneau has produced estate-grown vinifera wines. Our 110-acre estate provides optimal sun exposure and air flow for consistently aromatic white wines and rich, full-bodied red wines. An award-winning winery, we are home to three highly acclaimed Governor's Cup Awards and five Jefferson Cups. Our commitment to quality and integrity in grape growing and winemaking results in the finest Finger Lakes wines.
The Chateau LaFayette Reneau tasting room is situated in a fully-restored, century-old barn nestled on the southeast side of Seneca Lake in the Finger Lakes. The stony shale soil and rolling slopes of Seneca Lake--the deepest of the glacier-cut Finger Lakes--are ideally suited for growing cool-climate grapes.
We invite you to come for a visit. Drink in our breathtaking views and savor our fine wines, all inspired by nature.
