Chateau Fontaine

Chateau Fontaine is a family-run winery that opened its tasting room doors in 2000. Dan and Lucie Matthies started growing grapes in 1987, and made their first Chardonnay in 1998. Chateau Fontaine's white wines are a dry Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and Woodland White, made from Auxerrois, a little known grape variety in this country, originally from France. Semi-dry Gewurztraminer and semi-sweet White Riesling are our less dry selections. Our red wines are Pinot Noir and Woodland Red, an estate grown blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Syrah. We also have an excellent Cherry wine made from tart cherries grown nearby. Our wines are available at the tasting room near Lake Leelanau, at fine wine shops in the Leelanau and Grand Traverse area, and at select retailers around the state.
