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.
