Welcome to Chateau LaFayette Reneau
September is a special month in the Finger Lakes and at our beautiful estate winery. The Finger Lakes Wine Alliance has proclaimed September "Riesling Month" in homage to the region's star varietal. A month-long series of more than 40 events celebrating the exceptional range of Rieslings produced by the Finger Lakes Wine Alliance member wineries will span New York State. For a full calendar of events from upstate to Brooklyn, visit www.rieslingmonth.com.
A little history on our winery. Established in 1985, 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.
For over 30 years, Chateau LaFayette Reneau has produced estate-grown vinifera wines. Our 140-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, all awarded to our premier Rieslings. Our commitment to quality and integrity in grape growing and winemaking results in the finest Finger Lakes wines.
We invite you to come visit us. Drink in our breathtaking views and savor our fine wines, all inspired by nature.
