This place deserves a visit if only for the views. It's very nice inside at the wine tasting bar but you should grab a glass and head outside for the scenic views. They have a good size parking lot but because it was busy, parking...More

What a beautiful location. I would like to stay at their B&B, but know that you need to plan well in advance as it is a popular location. Well worth the $$ you spend on it too.

Chateau Chantel is a long drive from Traverse City, but everything about the winery makes up for the distance. A large interior tasting room, lots of selections, and a large expansive outdoor patio overlooking the vineyards makes this a great stop. The flights are easy...More

Went up to enjoy a glass of wine on the patio. The view is spectacular. Came back the next day for a tour and tasting/paring. So much fun. The staff are wonderful and the product great. Would certainly come back again.

This is a beautiful winery. The wine is not the most complex, but is good drinking wine with a variety of foods. The prices are reasonable. Rob, our server, was very knowledgable and friendly.

I believe they are ok having dogs on the patio........I didn't see any the day we were there, but I would suspect it's ok but calling to verify would probably be advised.
