Our vineyards in Hector are going through their crucial dormant stage, an important period in the cycle of grapes. That means freezing temperatures, winds and other adverse weather conditions. While the grape vines takes a well-deserved rest, our vineyard crew is busy securing fence posts, repairing trellises and strategically pruning to create a balanced crop load for the coming season.
It's true that during the cooler climate vines must struggle, but, as many of us know, struggle develops character in both humans and grapes. Rest assured that we will do our best in the vineyards and in the cellar to keep the grapes and wines as great as they've always been.
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 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.
