Breathtaking Views, Fine Wines

Tasting Experience

We are open Sunday through Thursday, 11am-5pm, and Friday and Saturday 11am-6pm, for flights, glasses/bottles of wine, and prepared foods in our spacious indoor tasting rooms, our two outdoor decks, and an outdoor garden overlooking our vineyards and Seneca Lake. We offer our last Tasting Flights 30 minute prior to our scheduled closing time.

Visitation Policies

We have measured out all of our spaces available to customers to ensure that each party will have their own space, and 6-feet of distance to the next group. We do ask that all guests wear a mask during arrival and departure, but once seated, you will not be required to wear a mask. We will limit groups for walk-in tastings to 6 or less people. Groups of 7-10 people must have a confirmed reservation in advance. To make a reservation, please call: 607-546-2062 or email

Tasting Service

We have adapted our Tasting Service to be consistent with health and safety guidelines. Each guest may select one of four thoughtfully crafted flights, which will be served to you all at once. Our staff will be available to answer questions about the wine, our winery and any other questions that you may have. The Flight service guarantees guests 30 minutes at their designated seated or standing location. If guests wish to stay a little longer they may also purchase wine by-the-glass, wine by-the-bottle, and prepared foods provided by The Tasting Barn to enjoy while at Chateau LaFayette Reneau.

Guests who wish to purchase bottles of wine or food to take with them following their flight tasting mad do so at our front desk, and the staff will package their wine and food for them.

During your visit to Chateau LaFayette Reneau our staff will be wearing masks, and you will see that they follow a regular cleaning and sanitizing schedule. Guests will have access to multiple hand-sanitizing stations.

About Us

For over 35 years, Chateau LaFayette Reneau has produced award winning estate-grown vinifera wines and a selection of blended wines. Our vineyards enjoy optimal sun exposure and air flow for consistently aromatic white wines and rich, full-bodied red wines. We invite you to come for a visit! Our knowledgeable tasting room staff looks forward to pouring for you. Our wine offerings cover everyone’s palette; from dry reds and whites, to semi-dry reds, whites, sparkling, sweet and dessert wine.

One-of-a-Kind Views

Renowned for its spectacular views, Chateau LaFayette Reneau features dynamic vistas of Seneca Lake, several spring-fed ponds, colorful gardens, and acres of vineyards. With seating on two decks and an outdoor picnic area beneath a grape-strewn arbor, it’s the perfect location to enjoy a glass of wine and a snack. As we like to say, “Come for the wine, stay for the views.” No outside food or drinks, please.

Wine by the Glass and Prepared Foods

All of our wines are available by the glass; prices vary. We have a small selection of fresh lunch style foods prepared and safely packaged at The Tasting Barn.
