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.

Nice Variety of Wine

We liked the variety of wines at the Chateau. Well organized and reasonable priced bottles. A nice viewing area. One of the better wineries for sure.

What a beautiful view and fun time. They have tons of wines to try and cheese flights and other goodies to enjoy on the patio. We just missed the sensory tour but will come back. This is professionally run winery that appears very busy with wine dinners, jazz events and so many things we want to come back. Looks like... More

We came in the winter so the view was amazing! We could see miles around.

Wine is just ok to me. I've gone back 2 or 3 times because I WANT to like it. But it really doesn't do it for me. However the location/ winery itself is beautiful.

We liked the property. We didn't enjoy the rushed feel that we experienced. We've never been to a winery or tasting room where you had to wait in line, then get rushed through the pouring session. The wines were ok, but didn't fine anything stellar with the few we tasted. Part of enjoying your visit to a winery or tasting... More

This does not excuse the behavior of your server, for that I am very sorry. I do share these with all our staff so... More

A beautiful setting with a nice tasting room, more I line with some of the larger vineyards in California. Some really good blends. I would love to come back for dinner on the patio.
