  • We always stop here when we go to Traverse City. Nice tasting room with a great view of the vineyards. We always leave with some wine, there are several that taste great. 
  • A must see if you are doing the wine trails. Absolutely beautiful view from all around the winery with good wine and good prices. 
  • We had a reservation for 3 pm. Parking lot was packed & inadequate. Ended up being about 15-20 minutes late because we couldn't find a place to park. They had given our "reserved" bar away. Because we...  read more »
  • Last night we went for the 7 course wine pairing dinner. Our 46th anniversary was on Monday but the dinners were not offered on that day and we are so glad we waited to have our anniversary dinner on the next day. Everybody was wonderful. The chef was amazing. The food was out of this world. Every course and the choice of wine with them was exceptional. We enjoyed sharing our table with interesting people. We can't say enough about the wonderful experience we had at Chateau Chantal.
  • Wow this place is nice! We loved a couple of their wines and the patio is gorgeous. Sitting out high above it all with a cheese plate and flight of wine looking over the vineyard and Grand Traverse Bay was truly amazing!
  • We stopped at Chateau Chantal for wine tasting. The line for tasting was very long, so we just ended up buying some wine by the glass and sat outside while enjoying our wine. The view outside is beautiful, as the chateau is set on top of a hill and allows for a great view of the west bay.
  • My husband and I visited Chateau Chantel for a wine tasting. We received great serviced and we were educated on the varieties of wine , and the best temperatures to store and drink the wine. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and the best part of our visit was the beautiful view!
  • I've grown up with Chateau Chantal. Bob and Nadine have always been great hosts and run a first class operation. Chateau Chantal is, what I would consider, the Mother of the modern Winery in the Traverse City region. Good, if not great, wines and vistas that can't be matched by any other location! I highly recommend catching one of their Summer Concert series - the cost is a glass or bottle of wine - a bargain! For the true lover of life, love, food and of course wine - I highly recommend an overnight stay at their B&B - if they have a room available! Cheers! 🍷
