Owner description: 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.

This winery is a very popular spot with breathtaking views. A must stop on your wine tour. They have a large selection of wine and you can purchase by the glass and sit out on their expansive patio overlooking the water. The tasting bar is quite large and can accommodate a lot of people. They have some food available for purchase too.

This winery has some of the most amazing views! The staff was friendly and the wine was tasty. We were able to take some gorgeous pictures outdoors here. We would return!

Amazing view, delicious wine. If you go in the warmer months, you risk it being busy, especially on the weekend, but there is beautiful patio seating to take a glass of wine, or their flight of 3 outside. Or go during the off season, beat the crowds, and taste 6 different wines at the bar, and take your glass home! We have done both. No winery beats this quaint, beautiful location looking over both bays.

We stopped at Chateau Chantal on our wine tour of Mission Peninsula. Absolutely beautiful location. Our server for our tasting was very personable and we had a lot of fun during our tasting. Would definitely recommend stopping here if you are on Mission Peninsula.

Beautiful location, great views. However, too busy, not enough seating, similar to stock available at grocery stores. It was the only place where there were lines. Unfortunately terrace wasn't open for sitting and enjoying a glass with the great views.

Hello,

I'm sorry to hear that your experience with us didn't match your expectations. We do have several winery only wines and spirits that can't be found on the grocery store shelves including our cherry eau de vie and brandy. Our patios are always open when the tasting room is open. If the "wines by the glass" service is inside, you can always take your wine out to our east or west patio to have a seat and enjoy the great views. Outside, there is seating for 50+.

Thank you,
Marie-Chantal Dalese
