Chateau Chantal New Operational Procedures Under COVID-19 as of March 24, 2020

Based upon recommendations from the Governor’s office as of today, Tuesday, March 24, 2020, the Chateau Chantal tasting room will be closed, but still shipping orders placed on our website.  We may not offer pick-ups of wine orders, nor tastings, flights, nor glasses of wine for consumption at the winery.  We will be staffed only for time-sensitive agricultural care of our vineyards, to secure wine manufacturing and for the administration of these functions.

At this time our Bed & Breakfast is closed but will reopen 4/14/2020 (unless there are other closure orders).

Please check back for updates if you are planning to visit Chateau Chantal.

COVID-19 Health & Welfare Policy

Chateau Chantal is taking the threat of the COVID-19 seriously and we are implementing the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) Interim Recommendations for COVID-19 Community Mitigation Strategies March 11, 2020.


Chateau Chantal recognizes that community mitigation strategies are crucial to slowing the transmission of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Michigan, particularly before a vaccine or treatment becomes available. These strategies provide essential protections to individuals at risk of severe illness and to health care and other critical infrastructure workforces. Preventing a sudden, sharp increase in the number of people infected with COVID-19 will help minimize disruptions to daily life and limit the demand on health care providers and facilities. 


These recommended strategies apply at the individual, organizational, and community levels. They apply to businesses, workplaces, schools, community organizations, health care institutions, and individuals of all ages, backgrounds, and health profiles. Everyone has some measure of responsibility to help limit the spread of this disease. Even individuals who are healthy can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 to others.


Michiganders have been preparing for COVID-19 for weeks, and all individuals should continue to take the following basic personal-hygiene measures to prevent the spread of the virus: 


  • wash your hands often with soap and water or use hand sanitizer;
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands;
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing;
  • avoid handshakes;
  • avoid contact with sick people who are sick; and
  • stay home when you are sick.


Based upon recommendations for workplaces, Chateau Chantal will:

  1. Encourage employees to stay home when sick and to notify supervisors of illness.
  2. Communicate and reinforce best practices for washing hands covering coughs and sneezes.
  3. Regularly clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces, like doorknobs, keyboards, cell phones, and light switches.
  4. Ensure hand hygiene supplies are readily accessible throughout the workplace.
  5. Encourage staff to tele-work when feasible, particularly individuals at risk of severe illness.
  6. Implement social distancing measures as feasible, including limiting in-person meetings.
  7. Limit large work-related gatherings (e.g., staff meetings and after-work functions).
  8. Limit non-essential work travel.
  9. Cancel or postpone large gatherings, conferences, and sporting events (e.g., greater than 100 people in a shared space).
  10. Discourage employees from eating meals in a large group setting, such as a cafeteria.
  11. Tailor continuity of operation plans to the COVID-19 threat.
