Relax and Enjoy the Spectacular Views!!
Oct 2021
Absolutely our favorite Winery in Traverse City area. Ideal setting to sip and enjoy the wine -- everyone was friendly -- workers as well as other guests. GO early in the day to get a seat on the balcony....stunning view of the entire area! Wine was good -- not great -- but the scenery was magical!

Good experience
Sep 2021
Location / scenery is beautiful, the wine was better than we expected so that part was good as well. The one annoying part was about dogs, I had read people saying it was ok put on the grass part of the patio. I asked our server he said he didn’t know so he asked another employee who said no unless it’s a service dog and then another employee overheard and said it’s ok out on the back. This isn’t very complicated so there should be a clear answer.

A world class view of East and West Traverse Bay and vineyards. Good wine but not great but the view and the ambiance are worth the trip!

Excellent Winery!
Jun 2021 • Friends
Chateau Chantal offers excellent Michigan wines in a fantastic setting. It was busy on a Saturday afternoon with visitors lined up outside for tastings. Chatting with an employee, we were taken inside to another area where we purchased the Tastings of 3 two ounce tastings. Prices were $12.50 for the three but dropped to $10 with of the 3 sampling’s. . Tastings were Preserve Chardonnay, Preserve Pinot Noir, Malbec, and Late Harvest Riesling. Each were very good. Their huge outdoor patio is spacious, has some covered and uncovered tables with fantastic views of the vineyards. The Chateau also has accommodations (bed and breakfast). Friends with us had visited previously and said the wine pairing dinner and accommodations are excellent. In the evenings the owner often visits with the overnight guests. They even had a corn hole game - which was fun. Be prepared on weekends in summer it is busy. When we left there were several wine tour buses that had just arrived.

Pre-selected wine flights
Mar 2021 • Couples
The wine at Chateau Chantel was pretty good. It was a bit of a bummer that the flights are pre-selected and not the typical wine tasting where you can pick among many. We had a good experience and if the weather permits, I highly recommend outdoor seating.

Winter Wine with a Bay View!
Jan 2021
We made reservations for the outdoor patio late on Saturday afternoon. The sun was shining and the view of East Bay on this snowy afternoon was the best! There was a firepit and high top barrel tables to make seating pleasant. There were several igloos on the patio which required more advanced reservations. We also walked around the building to see more igloos and a view of West Bay.
While there were extensive tasting choices, our reservation included the choice of a 3 glass flight or a glass of wine. The area is known for whites, but we prefer reds and our selections didn't disappoint. For an easy dry selection we liked the Trio, Proprietor's Reserve and the Naughty Red. Our friends favored the semi-dry Riesling.
The Staff was very courteous and cautious, and followed all of the required protocols.
Recommendation: It's Winter in Northern Michigan. Dress warm for the occasion!

I forgot to buy a can of wine on the way out!
Oct 2020
Making advance reservations here was kind of confusing. We had to book and prepay for the equivalent of 4 persons, even though there are only two of us. The extra money would be applied to more wine. I wanted to secure a spot inside just in case the weather was bad, so I followed the instructions and prepaid. Upon arrival, the host told us we could get a refund for the extra cost, and that was easily done. Seating here was actually outside in a covered patio, and that was fine for the weather today. Although the sun is now hiding behind some clouds, it's not too chilly. We sampled two of the wines, which I'd rate as okay. I was happy to see that small dogs were allowed here. The grounds of the estate are beautiful. There is an inn onsite. I'm thinking it's a beautiful spot for an event. There was a table set up with thermometers, but no one was taking temperatures today. The staff is all protected with masks, and so are we. I was surprised to see Chantel Wines in a can. I understand this is the newest trend in wine. I forgot to buy a can on the way out!

Good wine, Beautiful View, Friendly Staff, Nice Patio
Sep 2020 • Couples
This was our favorite winery in the area.

The lake views and vineyard views are beautiful.

The wine flights are served in a holder so you can take them to your table after you order.

Service was friendly.

Very relaxing place to enjoy good wine.
