Chateau Fontaine

Chateau Fontaine Getting its French title from proprietor Lucie Matthies' middle name and paying homage to the French immigrants who settled in the area, Chateau Fontaine was a deserted potato farm and cow pasture when Dan Matthies discovered the property in the 1970's with its favorable south-facing slopes for growing grapes. Today, the five-acre pasture is just one small parcel of the 17 acres of pinot gris, chardonnay, gewurztraminer, pinot noir and merlot.

16 miles north of Traverse City on M-22. 6 miles west on M-204. 3 miles south on S. French Road (CR 645).
