Spent three nights with two other coulples from Cincinnati. The area is beautiful, Chateau Chantal is in the Mission Peninsula and beautiful Grand Traverse Bay can be seen on both sides of the Inn The wines, especially the reisslings and the unoaked chardonnay are quite remarkable. The pinot noirs are not quite as full bodied as Oregon or California, but still quite drinkable. Their red blends (Naughty Red) at $15 per bottle is an every day quaff. The wine makers dinner at $70 for seven courses is a steal; the pairings of wine and food are terrific, just the right portion sizes and lovely service. All in all, an unrivaled comb ination in a beautiful .location.
