Domenic Carisetti and Patrice DeMay are the owners of Chteau Renaissance as well as longtime friends and veterans among Finger Lakes winemakers. Patrice has a long family history in wine-making, dating back to the 1920s in the Loire Valley of France. Domenic and Patrice designed and built Chteau Renaissance Wine Cellars in a Normandy/Tuscany style of architecture


The goal behind the start-up of the Finger Lakes winery was to provide training and employment to people with disabilities and to those who were on public assistance. They also formed a teaching partnership with Corning Community College, offering classes in both viticulture (grape-growing) and oenology (wine science).


Make a weekend of your trip to the Finger Lakes, and stay in a local inn or B&B. Each property offers a unique setting and experience, making it easy to find the property that best fits your trip, whether it be for romance, a family gathering, or business. Depending on the time of year and the local events that are happening, you will often find amazing package deals that will allow you to do more for less

Then between your wine tastings, taste the amazing food that is made by restaurants around Steuben County. Many of the restaurants choose to use locally produced products to create their meals, allowing your a dining experience that can truly only be found in Corning & the Finger Lakes.
