We really enjoyed our visit to the Chateau! The wines were good but a bit pricey however the chateau itself and the grounds are absolutely beautiful. The staff at the chateau were top notch.

I would recommend making a reservation and it's as easy as sitting in their parking lot and calling! That's all it takes!
