Chateau Aeronautique Winery

Chateau Aeronautique Winery was founded on the ideals of creating fine wines from Michigan grapes and offering those wines for tasting in a beautiful, relaxing setting. The theme of the Chateau Aeronautique Winery is the airpark lifestyle: grass roots aviation, flying, vintage airplanes, and living in a home with hangar on a grass runway surrounded by forests. The model for the winery is the chateau wineries of Bordeaux and Burgundy in France. The reason for the Winery is a passion for viniculture, the aromas of the Winery, the mystique of the Wine Cellar, and the pleasures of the Tasting Room.

 

*Coming Soon to the Irish Hills: a Second Chateau Aeronautique Winery Tasting Room! Please check ChateauAeronautiqueWinery.com or call 517-569-2132 for more information.*
