We loved this winery! We were welcomed from the moment we stepped inside. Our server was very knowledgeable and was able to answer any questions we had. There was a big selection of wine to choose from which made it hard to decide which ones to get. We will definitely go back there on our next trip to this area.... More

During our trip to Traverse City we went to this Winery and thoroughly enjoyed the wine tasting. The location is beautiful - way up on a hill overlooking bays of Lake Michigan on both sides. Everyone was gracious and of course we bought some wine! There is a small fee for the wine tasting, but definitely worth it. When the... More

Great atmosphere and wine tasting venue on picturesque Old Mission Peninsula, the Napa Valley of the Midwest!

Our visit to this winery was pleasant - beautiful setting, amazing deck and very friendly service. We did the wine tasting and then purchased a glass of wine and some cheese. Although it was a very pleasant hour or so, the wine itself is not stellar. Come for the view and something different to do.

I try to like this place every time we come here but I continue to be disappointed. I agree with all the reviewers that this place has a great view. But honestly, that's were I see it stopping. I'll start briefly with the parking. It's terrible. In fact, they have posted a sign that says "Park Creatively." Though funny, it... More

What a great place to taste a great variety of wines. It was busy and crowded but we didn't feel overwhelmed at all. We were greeted and directed quickly to the tasting room where we were very informed about every glass of wine we tasted. When we picked out our favorite wines, we were amazed at the discounts available and... More

We enjoyed the wine tasting very much. Then we bought a glass of wine and enjoyed it outside in the patio with a wonderful view of Grand Traverse Bay. Beautiful!

Set on a hilltop overlooking vineyards and Grand Traverse Bay, this is a favorite place for meetings, weddings and wine tasting. Just a couple of bucks will get you half a dozen tastes, and that's deducted after wine purchases. You can also buy wine by the glass, if a particular wine catches your fancy. Chateau Chantal is the outstanding winery... More

Searching for a winery or two to try after viewing the Old Mission Lighthouse, we normally would pass by the large, what we believed more commercial wineries, but we stopped at this one based on Trip Advisor reviews..... That was a great decision. GOOD wines, great friendly staff and a deck overlooking the water with unbelievable views. We took the... More
