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.

Stopped in with my wife while on vacation for a wine tasting. There selections are so broad there is something for everyone. I enjoyed the Late Harvest Reisling.. one of my favorites. You can purchase multiple samples (a list) for $7.00. You get your pick of 3 and are approximately 2 ozs each. They have a very nice seating area... More

Stopped on a drizzly day of touring wineries. Beautiful grounds with panoramic views, would have loved to have sat outside & enjoyed them. Impressive tasting room and wine selection. We did the tasting and found several we liked and purchased. Glad to see we can reorder our favorites online. Thank you for a lovely time.

This was a very nice winery to go to. Great wine tasting. If we would have been there on a nicer day it would have been great to sit outside and enjoy wine and the scenery. Was worth the stop!

We had been advised to visit this winery because of the great view. The view was great! The wine tasting was not so great. We did enjoy one wine so we each ordered a glass of it to enjoy on the terrace.

Hello, I'm so sorry not all of our wines meet your expectations. Thankfully we do produce over 30 wines, so there is usually something for everyone, as it sounds there was eventually for you as well. Best wishes, Marie-Chantal Dalese More

We saw a sign for this winery when driving on Rt. 37 and decided to stop by. The grounds are beautiful - acres of vines, fabulous water views, and even some solar panels. The attractive winery building has a wonderful, large terrace with tables where people can enjoy their wine - either one of the tasting menus in small glasses,... More

Greetings, Thank you for the kind review, we're so pleased to hear that your experience with us was a delight. While we do offer bottles of wine to go, our manufacturing license does not allow the consumption of full bottles at our winery, unless you are a registered overnight guest. We hope to see you back another time! Cheers, Marie-Chantal... More

This is a fabulous winery on par with any in Napa. Tasting prices are reasonable, unlike Napa Valley. Wonderful outdoor deck to enjoy wines and unsurpassed views. Limited food to accompany wine is available.

We attended a wine dinner at the Chateau last night and had a great time. It was the Fall menu that was superbly prepared by Chef Reuben with commentary by our host Mike. The food and pairings were GREAT!

This is one of the highest rated wineries in an MLive.com article on the best wineries in Traverse City. My wife and our dog Reggie visited in August and really enjoyed our time there. The drive from the city is relatively short and stress free. There is a long drive way then you lead up to this grand estate with... More

Our second stop on our wine tour, we still had time to kill before the wedding party and friends gathering. Great wine, friendly staff, and great views.

I have been here a few times and this last trip was by far the best! My cousin won a private tasting and tour from a charity event.

Hello, Thanks so much for taking the time to review your experience with us, glad to hear everything was wonderful! The founders are from Detroit and Grand Rapids, but Nadine spent many years in Livonia at the Felician Sisters Mother House while she was a nun! It IS a great story!
