Chateau Chantal CEO Earns Certified Sommelier Certificate

Chateau Chantal CEO, Marie-Chantal Dalese, has earned the Certified Sommelier designation from The Court of Master Sommeliers. Driven by a desire to understand more about the wider world of wine and service, Ms. Dalese is excited to bring what she’s learned to Chateau Chantal. She passed her exam November 13th in Detroit.

Ms. Dalese commented, “The process to become a Certified Sommelier required extensive study of the world’s wine regions, their grapes, climates, soil conditions and taste profile. Partnered with the skills of tableside wine service, the experience was a challenge. It will be interesting to parlay this information into our own Northern Michigan wine experience.”

The Court of Master Sommeliers was established to encourage improved standards of beverage knowledge and service in hotels and restaurants. For more information about The Court, visit their website at:
