Welcome to Chateau LaFayette Reneau
For nearly 35 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. We are home to three highly acclaimed Governor's Cup Awards and five Jefferson Cups, in addition to innumerable other awards and gold medals. 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 east 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. Our knowledgeable tasting room staff looks forward to pouring for you. Drink in our breathtaking views and savor our fine wines, all inspired by nature.
