  • The hospitality that was shown to us over the weekend was above and beyond. I’m still in awe with their trust system for the B&B guests. We had 24hr access to the wine room, kept track of our own purchases to avoid the lines, and simple rule is to make yourself at home and enjoy. The special treatment, 7 course dinner, gourmet breakfasts and stunning views will have us back in the near future. Goodbye for now until next time Chateau Chantal! Friendly Tip: We stayed 3 nights in the French School Suite and it’s absolutely beautiful!
  • I love this winery. It is possible that they have the best view from their back deck than any other winery on Old Mission Peninsula. It is a very big tasting room - they have an extremely large deck and multiple bars for tastings. It was very busy here, which is not a surprise. The wine is all very good, but the amount of wines that they have is insane. It is almost too much to be able to choose from. I would highly recommend trying the Cherry Bubbly. It was so good that we ended up leaving with several cans of it. The bartender that we had was pretty good - he seemed like he likes his job! My only complaint about this place is that the fruit flies are crazy bad. Maybe it is because the wine is good!?
