Welcome to Chateau LaFayette Reneau
Message from the Chateau LaFayette Reneau team on July 17, 2020:
As we navigate this ever changing landscape it is our highest priority to keep our guests, our staff, and our community safe.
With this goal in mind we are ready and able to safely comply with all NYS Public Health Mandates.
Please know that we have a variety of delicious Tapas style snacks available for you to purchase and enjoy with your Tasting Flight and with our view.
As per NYS mandates:
“All restaurants and bars statewide will be subject to new requirements that they must only serve alcohol to people who are ordering and eating food.”
This new mandate does apply to all Finger Lakes wineries. Please understand that due to this new mandate and existing social distancing requirements our seating is limited. If you are a group over 6 we will do our best to accommodate you with a reservation.
Additionally, face masks are absolutely required for entrance into our winery.
Thank you for your patience and understanding at this time. We want to see all of you in a safe way.

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 winery staff look forward to meeting you. Drink in our breathtaking views and savor our fine wines, all inspired by nature.
