The Chateau Chantal Tapas Tour is a unique experience at the winery that consists of an extensive and enlightening tour of the vineyard and winery, as well as a tapas-style offering of small plates paired with our own Chantal wines.
Tours are led by our experienced guides who will walk guests through the winemaking process from vine to wine, and lead them through an exploration of the intricacies of wine and food pairing. More in-depth than the standard winery tour, Tapas allows the guest to gain vineyard, winemaking, and wine tasting knowledge that they can use to help make wise wine purchasing decisions in the future. This experience is the perfect opportunity for Chateau Chantal to continue the connection we make on a daily basis between food and wine.
Tapas Tours start June 14th and run daily through Labor Day. Tours begins at 12:30 and lasts two hours. Tours will usually contain no more than 25 guests to ensure a warm and personal experience, and reservations are required at least 1 day in advance. Call us at 1-800-969-4009 or book online for reservations. The cost is $28 per person.
Guests are asked to bring an eager palate, an inquisitive mind, and a light jacket to wear as the tour ventures through the cool cellar
