Wine Country Cozy
Chateau Chantal has the feel of a visit to a country manor, and that’s because the owner of the house makes it so. Book a stay in one of 11 hilltop rooms with views of orchards, vineyards, classic red barns and—yes— two bays, and your custom breakfast mimosas will be poured by owner Bob Begin, the same guy who likely stoked your real wood fire the night before. If Bob and his family aren’t serving you directly, you’ll still feel part of it. As one staffer says he tells his friends: If you want to learn a lot about wine, come after the busy harvest when the tasting room takes on the feel of a private class—and retreat. Day visitors can also call ahead to book a private tour and tasting or take the day and wander a new founder’s trail through the vines.
