Chateau Chantal Announces New Tasting Blindly Lunch Experience

May 12, 2022 Traverse City, MI: Chateau Chantal has created another immersive experience to tantalize your taste buds and educate your palate this summer called Tasting Blindly.

Looking for an out-of-the-box lunch experience? For 10 Thursdays this summer starting June 30th at noon, participants will embark on this experience with a blind tasting of 3 different wines followed by 3 different wine and food pairings. Learn by tasting wine in black glasses with your palate – not with your eyes. Learn how other wine characteristics can improve your experience. Break the rules with your lunch by pairing both red and white wine with each dish and feel good about it.

Expect the unexpected with Tasting Blindly. Thursdays June 30-Sept 1. Nine wine tastes, 3 courses. Tickets are $50 (tax and tip not included) per person and are limited to the first 24 people. Must be over 21 years of age.

The location’s unparalleled views and outstanding staff play host to B&B activities, cooking classes, wine education opportunities, Lunch Tours, conferences and meetings, small weddings, and friendly regional wine events.
