Looking for a donation?

Thank you for thinking of Chateau Chantal for a donation. Each year we receive over 365 donation requests- over one/day! At this time we have set a company policy that we do not donate wine nor room stays, but in the spirit of charity we have established the following donate-able items:
1. A wine discount which may be used for wine to be served at a fund raising event, discount will vary per event.
2. A $30 gift card which may be purchased for only $20 (limited to one/charity. May be used for door prized, raffles, or other functions.)
3. A "VIP Taste & Tour for 6" for auctions. The dollar value of the tour is $180 and we ask, whether for a live or silent auction, that the bidding begin at 50% of the value ($90). Please note we do not donate a VIP tour for use as a door prize.

This is a very popular auction item and it is our way of helping you support your cause. In order to begin the request process fill out this form and return it to Chateau Chantal. We receive many requests daily so please allow two weeks for processing.

Who is the Winemaker?
Mark Johnson has been the winemaker at Chateau Chantal since we opened.  Trained at the Geisenheim Research Institue in Germany, Mark has a dedicated passion for making classic cool climate wines from Northern Michigan.  He also spends his time in Argentina, making our Malbec red wine from our vineyard in Mendoza. 

How long has Chateau Chantal been open?
Chateau Chantal, a Michigan winery, planted their first vines in 1986 and opened the original building in 1993. In July of 2003, an expansion was completed bringing the total B&B units from three to eleven with the addition of a 2,000 square foot Hospitality Room.
