Welcome to Investor Relations at Chateau Chantal

It is a privilege to have the opportunity to lead your management team as stewards of the investment you’ve made in the Chateau. As you will see in this section, we are passionate about keeping our winery/chateau as a one-of-a-kind destination in the Great Lakes that is a success for its owners, customers and neighbors. We are proud of what we do. The Chateau operating team is committed to continuing to shape this company in a way that will make you proud to have a piece of Chateau Chantal.

As always, we are a small company and never bashful about answering questions about what we are doing. Come up to the Peninsula and spend some time with us. We look forward to seeing you then. In the meantime, look for our wines in your local market and tell your wine retailers to include Chateau Chantal wines from Michigan and Argentina in their store.
