Price: $10.00 Duration: 30 min Group Size: 1 - 4 Guests

Wine Flights (or Glasses of Wine) pre-order

To prevent lines, congestion, and to limit interactions we are asking that ALL tasting room visits RESERVE a tasting-flight (or glass of wine). The price is the same this reservation basically guarantees your pick-up time. You will decide which flight (or glass of wine) you would like once you arrive at the wine bar- FLIGHTS are 3 wines (approx. 1.5-2 oz pours) or you may choose a GLASS of wine (5 oz).   This offer begins 9/25/2020 (other offers available for earlier dates or for service outside)

When you arrive at the winery we will “check you in” for 'pick-up' of your flight (or glass) at the bar. Once you pick-up your wine we will ask that you head outside to (a table or onto the lawn). With ample space outside, on either our east patio or west lawn, you can be assured that you'll enjoy 'social distance' from other guests. 

What we will ask of you during these difficult times:

1. When inside it is legally required to please wear a facemask and appropriately social distance.  Even when you are outside, if you are with people not of your immediate household, you are legally required to wear a facemask if you are not able to maintain 6ft distances. Please wear you mask whenever you are not actively eating or drinking.

2. Flights will have pre-designed flights available, while subject to change at this time please choose from:

    Sweet Flight: Late Harvest Riesling, Bubbly Cherry, Nice Red

    Dry Flight: Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Naughty Red

    Bubbly Flight: Celebrate, Beguile, Bubbly Cherry

    Reserve Dry Wines: Reserve Dry Riesling, Reserve Trio, Reserve Malbec

We will do our best to accommodate substitution choices depending upon timing and crowds, please browse the wines on our website if you'd like more details on our wines. (www.chateauchantal.com) If you wish to have specific wines for your flight (or glass) please inform your server when you arrive.  

3. Each ticket will have a $2 service fee which will be given to your server as a tip.

4. You will have an opportunity to add food items, bottles of wine to-go, and other products to a ticket when you pick up your wine flight (or glass).  Orders for wine to-go will be ready to pick-up within a short time, or you can pre-order from our website now and we'll have your order pre-packaged.

5. For groups with more than 3 people if possible, please designate 1 or 2 members of your group to enter the winery for pickup to help limit crowding. Any guests without masks must wait outside while another masked member of your group comes inside to retrieve wines.  Please have all children wait outside while an adult picks up the wine if at all possible.

6. Tables inside are by RESERVATION ONLY.  Please BRING UMBRELLAS and WEAR WEATHER APPROPRIATE CLOTHING you will be OUTSIDE. If you need to cancel, we will offer a refund only if you EMAIL at least 1-hour before your reserved time.

Yes! you do have to enter your 'shipping' details even though we won't actually ship you the glass of wine! :)  It is as if we are mailing you tickets to an event, so our system does require these details.

 

Groups Traveling Together-

Our current wine reservation system limits reservations to 4 per ticket.  We realize that some people are traveling in groups larger than 4, and with people who are not from their immediate household. Per the latest CDC guidelines, and by Michigan government order, if you are with people not from your immediate household and cannot stay 6-ft distant (even outside) you must wear masks at all times. Current health recommendations suggest masks and 6ft buffers for anyone not in your immediate household. 

The likelihood of large groups bringing COVID into our facility is much greater- it would be of risk to our staff, and could potentially cause a shutdown by the Michigan government of all wineries in Northern Michigan if we have an outbreak.   Quite frankly, there is no ‘safe’ way for a large group of people to travel together.  Gatherings larger than 10 are prohibited by the State, but even groups of 10 or fewer create greater risk. While it is possible that a group could make multiple reservations of 4, when a large group enters our winery together it causes a large cluster around which it is difficult, if not impossible, to maintain a 6ft buffer.

Please reconsider outings to our facility with people not in your immediate household until 2021 or after the pandemic has subsided.
