Chateau Chantal Offers Virtual Tasting Events

To help companies, friends, and families celebrate the season together virtually, Chateau Chantal is offering custom, or pre-packaged, online virtual tasting events this season.

This winter, move indoors and stay safe in your own home or office.  Company holiday parties, corporate sales pitches with a twist, family celebrations – pick a theme and we’ll cater to your tastes. 1-6 bottle packages with your desired Chateau Chantal wines or private-labeled wine, pairing possibilities, with shipping direct to the guests.

Our Certified Sommelier or Wine Edutainer will be on hand for up to 1 hour to lead your group through a wine tasting designed with your goal in mind.  We’ve performed several multi-session experiences with large corporations to date, all to rave reviews!

Support Michigan wines with Chateau Chantal’s virtual tasting opportunities. All wines are made from Michigan grapes and vinified at the Traverse City winery.  No further sales pitch will be made to your guests, simply a special discount code should they wish to order more!

Corporate customer Marc Speziale comments, “Our company has been struggling to keep customers engaged.  We normally have a lot of technology seminars and in-person events to spur sales.  COVID-19 has made this difficult.  While discussing the idea of doing tastings in general, we wanted to make sure it was very engaging and entertaining.  We decided to feature a local product, and Michigan wine came to mind.  Customer interaction during the event was 100%.  Within days, our sales representatives saw immediate results in customer engagement and calls were up over 150% week over week.  We saw an immediate increase in proposal requests and proof of concept conversations.  While our sales cycle from first call to close of sales is typically 6 months for our product, traffic for this event increased to our company more than some of our in-person events.  We are confident that this event will increase ROI by 10-fold, by the immediate feedback we received since holding the event.”

Chateau Chantal is a unique development that combines a winery, vineyards, bed and breakfast, residence, six private home sites, and winding roads, all of which combine to create a “retreat into the Old World.”  The 65 acre site sits high atop a ridge 12 miles north of Traverse City, Michigan on the beautiful and historic Old Mission Peninsula.  Chateau Chantal crafts many styles of wine, allowing the grape to dictate the style. The location’s unparalleled views and outstanding staff play host to B&B activities, cooking classes, wine education opportunities, Tapas Tours, conferences and meetings, small weddings, and friendly regional wine events.
