Chateau LaFayette Reneau is the proud recipient of a Jefferson Cup for its 2015 Semi-Dry Riesling at the recent 17th Annual Jefferson Cup Invitational Wine Competition, which took place in Kansas City, Missouri on November 17 and 18, 2016. With the addition of this recent award, winemaker Tim Miller celebrates a career total of five Jefferson Cups during his tenure at Chateau LaFayette Reneau.
“We are honored to receive the Jefferson Cup for our 2015 Semi-Dry Riesling,” said Miller. “As a winemaker, I’m proud to produce consistent, award-winning wines, and proud to be recognized by the Jefferson Cup Invitational Wine Competition.”
The Jefferson Cup is an invite-only wine competition in which over 700 wines are pre-selected to be judged, culminating with the awarding of the prestigious Jefferson Cups. The estate-grown and bottled 2015 Semi-Dry Riesling received one of five Jefferson Cups awarded to a white vinifera wine in the competition, and was one of two Finger Lakes wines to earn a Jefferson Cup. Twenty-four in total were awarded to vinifera and non-vinifera red, white, and dessert wines across nine states. For more information, visit http://thejeffersoncup.com/.
