Blessing of the Blossoms at Chateau Chantal

On Sunday, May 14th, Chateau Chantal will host the non-denominational Blessing of the Blossoms service.

Complimentary cherry pie, fruit, tea & coffee on hand after the half hour service.

No event ticket, charge or reservation needed to participate in the ceremony.

BLESSING OF THE BLOSSOMS
SUNDAY MAY 14
AT CHATEAU CHANTAL 
(AN INTERDENOMINATIONAL EVENT)

 

The Latin for blessing—benediction – derives from bene and dicere—i.e. to speak well
Thus, we speak well of blossoms this day. We tell a good story about nature,
crops, our livelihood and the beauty of this wonderful place called Old Mission Peninsula.
What good speech do we have for this place? That’s our prayer. That’s our Blessing.
————————— ● ————————
The intent this day would speak - a ’Liturgy’. i.e., public work calling
attention to the marvel of Spring - an Easter of new life!...not merely symbolized
in an Easter bunny’s egg, but the reality of bursting buds, the blossoms of
Peninsula cherries, apples and grapes, and sense that winter is done!

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.
