We loved the friendly personable service, the view was great. The drive is not far from the city with lots to see. Just a fine fine facility.

Yes it's a Winery, and a good one. Nice sensory tour tasting, very interesting and informative. Brian hosted the tour and was fun and friendly. We all enjoyed it. Not to mention the wine, oh did I say wine. If you like White Wine and sweet. The Nice White is awesome, we had to go back two days later to... More

I love this place! It's beautiful, European like and scenic. The views are breathtaking and the wine tasting room is great. I love that I can try most of their wines for a reasonable price and use my tasting fee towards a purchase. The staff I have encountered are always nice and knowledgeable. The outdoor seating area is a great... More

We had a great time tasting wines then enjoying a glass or two on their large outdoor patio with vineyard and panoramic lake views. The tasting was fun creating your own flight of samples and the ambiance was relaxing. We purchased two bottles whereby our tasting fee was discounted from the wine purchase. While we were there for the wine,... More

Take a drive out Center Road from Traverse City to enjoy a great taste and vision treat on the Peninsula. We had a marvelous dinner at the winery. The fixed menu 7 course meal was accompanied by good wine pairings for each course. There were two sparkling wines, a Pinot Noir, a Dry Riesling, Pinot Gris or Chardonnay (depending on... More

We just visited this winery today - we traveled from Glen Arbor, MI and it was definitely worth the drive up the Mission Peninisula, passing other wineries along the way. This winery is situated high atop a bluff and boasts a beautiful 360-degree view of both bays from its rooftop patio. There is a wide variety of wines to taste,... More

If you are heading to see the Old Mission light house that is north of Traverse City then stop a the Chateau Chantal winery. They even have a bed and breakfast on site if you want something a bit different. They have a very nice wine tasting room which for $3 you can taste 6 wines. Save the receipt if... More

The views from this winery are superb. Gently rolling hills, vine covered, surround the pavilion. Wine tasting is aided by a wine list with the correct progression of wines. Take the tour of the winery itself and learn the history of the areas wine culture. It is also a bed and breakfast with separate theme named rooms.

My husband and I absolutely enjoyed their 7 course wine-paired dinner this evening. The beginning started out iffy when we had no idea where to check in, but we were quickly greeted by Mike in the wine tasting area and told to browse for another 10 minutes before the wine tour would begin. The tour was a quick walk through... More

This was the worst winery visit I'd had I years. The person serving us clearly had no interest in us or what she was doing. Questions weren't answered, no communication was established, and no connection made with the place at all. The wines themselves were a mixed bag. Most were just so-so, a few average. Only one thing stood out... More
