Annual Wines of Old Mission Peninsula Dinner at Trattoria Stella

Annual Wines of Old Mission Peninsula Dinner Thursday, June 9 at Trattoria Stella

This year we are excited to present "A Decade on Old Mission Peninsula" told by proprietor & sommelier Amanda Danielson, OMP winemakers, viticulturists and writers through the lens of ten carefully selected wines.

Remember the ninety degree weather of March 2012? How did the polar vortex of 2014 affect that vintage? How long will we see the effects of the August 2, 2015 storm? How does vintage variation in wine affect food pairings, serving temperature, etc.?

Join us for an amazing dinner and riveting discussion.
$100 per person inclusive of tax & gratuity.
Call 231.929.8989 to reserve a seat at this extraordinary dinner.

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.
