  • The views are amazing at this beautiful winery! I had the greatest time sampling the wine and sitting out on the gorgeous patio! Flights of 3 wines are available for purchase, instead of regular...  more »
  • Such a beautiful setting anytime! But we were fortunate to be there the evening of Jazz at Sunset. So relaxing to sip wine outdoors looking over the vineyard with great live jazz music playing. Truly....  more »
  • Both the winery and the attached B&B are exquisite and a real must for our return visit. Octogenerian owner Bob hangs out there and helps serve a superior B&B breakfast. Big patio and lawn chairs...  more »

  • The hospitality that was shown to us over the weekend was above and beyond. I’m still in awe with their trust system for the B&B guests. We had 24hr access to the wine room, kept track of our own purchases to avoid the lines, and simple rule is to make yourself at home and enjoy. The special treatment, 7 course dinner, gourmet breakfasts and stunning views will have us back in the near future. Goodbye for now until next time Chateau Chantal! Friendly Tip: We stayed 3 nights in the French School Suite and it’s absolutely beautiful!
  • I love this winery. It is possible that they have the best view from their back deck than any other winery on Old Mission Peninsula. It is a very big tasting room - they have an extremely large deck and multiple bars for tastings. It was very busy here, which is not a surprise. The wine is all very good, but the amount of wines that they have is insane. It is almost too much to be able to choose from. I would highly recommend trying the Cherry Bubbly. It was so good that we ended up leaving with several cans of it. The bartender that we had was pretty good - he seemed like he likes his job! My only complaint about this place is that the fruit flies are crazy bad. Maybe it is because the wine is good!?
  • This place was so beautiful and the staff was SO awesome! We stayed at the bed and breakfast for one night (Sunday) on a long weekend trip. The views are incredible and the staff is so welcoming. We were able to do self guided wine tastings later at night after the tasting room closed which was great because we were out on a tour earlier in the day. The breakfast the next morning was also fantastic, and the tour was really cool. We felt like we were living in a Pure Michigan commercial our entire stay.
  • My wife and I have stayed here at the bed and breakfast a couple of times and it is everything and more We all know that the wine is great. But the staff is so friendly and they make us feel at home. Each room is unique with a great decor. The breakfast is awesome and we like how the chef comes out and talks to everyone before we eat. The room comes with some free tastings. The deck is huge with a great view. There are a lot of awesome wineries in the area and this one just might be right at the top.
  • Steven was amazing! Loved the Cherry Brandy. Sooo yummy. Beautiful view. Worth the trip.
