Visited this small winery on a whim...no fancy tour, no canned speach...a nice little winery that does everything the European way without adding corn syrup! We recently visited Europe and were impressed about the cleaness and crispness of these wines. I don't like fruit wines...More

This place is the reason we come back to the Finger Lakes region. We love their wines and the variety they have. Remember, wine tasting is different for each person's palate, but we truly enjoy this winery

We have been to Hammondsport before and love the local wine but had never visited Chateau Renaissance tasting room before. The owners are very patient and friendly and I recommend that you give their good wines a try.

Quaint and homey--beautiful setting. Owner was very accommodating and knowledgeable! Tasted many wines, since it was a bit quiet that time of day. Very reasonably priced wines. Must stop!

Stop by here and try the sparkling wine. They have traditional sparklers as well as fruit infused sparklers. The owner was very helpful with the tasting. The wines are very reasonably priced as well.

I love going to small wineries. There is nothing better than being able to talk with the couple that make the wines and can explain everything to you. From France, this couple was very friendly, relaxed, and willing to talk with us. There is no...More

A small French Winery in heart of the finger lakes near Hamonsport, NY. All the wine is made the old way, one at a time. They have great fruit wines (made from fruits, no grapes) but the best is the sparkeling wine (Champagnes), and you...More
