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.
