This was the second of 5 wineries we visited on our tour. Went in with great expectation and was let down. The quality of the wine was not the problem, we bought some of the wine. The staff made the experience very ordinary... they dropped sheets for us to make selections, made no suggestions and barely spoke to us while... More

You cannot beat the setting. Beautiful building and grounds. Spectacular views and sunsets. Jazz, wine... what else do you need. Attended a cooking class here are had a blast. Tried a lot of the wines. Thumbs up on the Malbec and cider. I you only go to one winery in the area, this is the one.

Hello Stopped at several wineries along Old Mission and this is always my favorite! Love the atmosphere and the views are breathtaking, it was of course very cold on Saturday when we were there but we still went out and took pictures off of the beautiful patio. If you have not been here you must go at least once!

We were with a tour group who had called ahead on a Friday afternoon. We were greeted with some unhappy comments when we arrived. This is the third time we've experienced this at this winery unfortunately. We frequent the TC area and love the view and the wine at Chateau Chantal, but aren't sure some of the team there wants...

Hello, I'm so sorry to hear your arrival was not properly attended to during your visit.

Visited Chateau Chantal in February for special meal and wine pairing. Chef Michael Alexander from Grand Rapids made a delicious 5 course dinner and Mike Dubois gave an informative tour of the cellars and paired the wine perfectly. Would go back!

I was there recently. The second oldest winery in upper Peninsula. Great variety of wines which are cultivated and taking care with a lot of passion. This is the the top three wineries you need to check out when your here.
