Chateau Chantal is a unique development that combines a winery, vineyards, bed and breakfast, residence, six private home sites, and winding roads, all of which combine to create an experience in Northern Hospitality. The 65 acre site sits high atop a ridge 12 miles north of Traverse City, Michigan on the beautiful and historic Old Mission Peninsula. Chateau Chantal crafts many styles of wine, allowing the grape to dictate the style. The location’s unparalleled views and outstanding staff play host to B&B activities, cooking classes, wine education opportunities, Tapas Tours, conferences and meetings, small weddings, and friendly regional wine events.

We visited this winery last month and it has great views of the vineyards. This is a fun place with tastings and many bottles of wine to purchase. A very nice atmosphere and a fun stop on the wine trail. This is one that should not be missed. The tasting room was crowded this last visit, but it is quite... More

Nearly 360 degree views. If the sky is clear it's a FABULOUS place for a sunset! Wine tasting at $3 for 6 is such a bargain. Very romantic.

Beautiful view off the deck and great wine. One of our favorite places! Try the cherry wine. Tasting price also goes towards bottle purchase!

The view here is amazing! I like how they have a huge deck area to have a glass of wine after tasting! The wines here were all really good! You also get the price of the tasting off any purchase of wine, so that was really cool! Loves it here plan on coming back!

We really enjoyed our wine tasting. Beautiful setting, very good wines. We took our choice of 3 flights of wine out to the patio and bought some cheese from the cooler. Very nice afternoon! We bought 2 bottles to take home!

Ok, let's be honest here - we are not wine connoisseurs - and so going to a tasting was a new experience for us. We both enjoy wines and were looking forward to learning a bit more about wine. When we see the pictures people seem to be having fun, and indeed the young couple next to us seemed to... More

Hello, Thank you for sharing your experience with us. I'm so sorry this was your experience. The young man you had as your server has been with us a few years and does have quite a large amount of wine knowledge, I don't know why he didn't share it, that is his job. I'll be having a discussion with him... More

We've been to Chateau Chantal several times over the past few years. When we do a wine-tasting trip in Michigan it is always included as one of our destinations, mostly because of the beautiful setting. This visit was especially busy - a waiting line to get up to the tasting bar! There is a small tasting fee but you also... More
