Enjoy coming here every year. Looked for our special wine server, Althea but she was off. Friendly and knowledgeable. Love the Chardonnay blend, Seyval-Chardonnay blend while enjoying the exquisite view from the deck.

Every year in July, we bring our Greyhounds to Grapehounds, a wine tasting event around Seneca Lake. Chateau Lafayette Reneau has been enjoyable every time. The beautiful flowers outside provide great photo ops. The tasting room is large and lovely, and we always find 2 or 3 wines that we like. That said, the person doing your tasting often determines...

Enjoyed a Sunday visit with 11 friend. Had a tasting and enjoyed a couple of bottles of wine on their deck with our snacks. Nice view, good wines

The view from the tasting room and the back deck have to be one of the best views in the entire finger lakes! The wines were very good and we left with a few bottles as well. We did not get to have a glass of wine on their fabulous deck but we will definitely do that on our next... More

This was our first-ever visit to the Finger Lakes wine country and I thoroughly research various wineries to visit. Our daughter is an annual visitor with a group of her friends and she recommended a stop at Chateau Lafayette Reneau. Good call, to say the least. We're mostly white wine drinkers and purchased several bottles of dry and semi-dry rieslings... More

This is place is incredible. It is my husband favorite wine and winery. Every time we go here the people are more then friendly. This time was no different. We had arrived early before they where open and ready for tasting. But they let us in to enjoy the view and take picture. When they where ready for us to... More

Pleasant stop while doing the Seneca Wine tour. Big deck out back to relax with a glass of wine. One of the nicer stops along the tour.

Breathtaking view of Seneca Lake as you approach the winery/vineyard from the main road. Beautiful tasting room with a panoramic view as well. Nice to experience a Rose of Pinot Noir since most Rose's in the area are from Cab Franc, which is okay too! Nice Cab Sav in addition to the Reislings. Worth the visit!

Located in a beautiful old barn. The wines, on the other hands, were just so-so and service at the winery was a bit on the slow side. $3 for 6 samples.
