All New! Wine and Food Pairing Tour

Our wine and food education offerings in 2015 are going to be the best yet! We have enhanced the popular Tapas Tour and added an additional offering each day. More wine and higher value, this new tour touches all five of your senses and will prove to enlighten your palate, your spirit, and your mind. You will enjoy learning how your environment can make your love and passion for Chateau Chantal wine even better!

In addition to a sit-down tasting focusing on how wine interacts with your senses, your specialized tour guide will lead you through our vineyard, cellar, and winemaking process. Once in the cellar, you'll enjoy 5 small-bite food and wine pairings designed to treat your taste buds.

Starting this June, the tour will run daily at 11:30am and again at 1:30pm. Visit our tasting room before or after your tour for a lunch pairing, the Pairing Tour is a compliment to a meal, not a meal in itself. Only 20 spots per tour so book yours before it is too late! Tickets are $25 per person.

Continuing this year!
Chateau Chantal is proud to announce that Lisa Flahive has been selected as the Artist in Residence for their 21st anniversary season. Lisa has a B.F.A in Studio Art from Michigan State University. She is most widely known for her expressive drawings and watercolor paintings of jazz musicians, captured during their performances.

Flahive said she doesn’t sit in the studio painting from photographs that have no life. Instead, she creates the work live in order to capture the energy and emotion that exists on the bandstand. “These paintings have an intensity that I could never achieve in the studio,” said Flahive.

You can watch Flahive create this impressive artwork live every Thursday evening this summer at Chateau Chantal during Jazz at Sunset with the Jeff Haas Trio. Flahive's artwork can be purchased at the winery. Proceeds benefit Building Bridges with Music.

Bring the family and friends and enjoy the best in live jazz, taste select Chateau Chantal wines and lemonade for the kids (yes, this is a very family-friendly environment), and feast your eyes on spectacular panoramic views of West and East Grand Traverse Bays. And there is no admission charge. It all happens at Chateau Chantal on Old Mission Peninsula, 1.7 miles north of the village of Mapleton on Center Road. For more information, call (231) 223-4110 or email:

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.
