Wine Boot Camp

Saturday, April 25, 2015
3pm-Dinner

By attending one of our wine seminars, you will get extensive experience pairing wine and food. You will also learn about wine, wine making, grape growing, and the art of wine tasting. Mark is a great storyteller, a non-intimidating wine instructor, and is adept at getting everyone involved. Sometimes his stories are even true! These are some of the things participants said about past seminars:

"You've got a great program keep up the good work, Mark makes everyone feel like a participant - great humor and wit! Can't wait to be back, Terrific all the way around, Wonderful food, wines were complimentary, presentation of food was awesome - fantastic service!"

Both classroom style and hands on experience are part of your wine immersion experience. Your day includes a tour of the cellar with an explanation of the wine making process, vineyard walk, short explanation of the art of tasting wine, and multi-course leisurely dinner with accompanying wines - all prepared in house! Each course, from the appetizer to the dessert is specially paired with Chateau Chantal wines.

The meal is a work of art, worth the price of the seminar on its own, but is included in the overall price of $95 per person. 

Reservations made by calling 1-800-969-4009 or online at www.chateauchantal.com

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: wine@chateauchantal.com.

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.
