My first morning at Chateau Chantal - which I fondly call the best place in the world to stay overnight – I sat down with Marie Chantal Dalese. They are a larger producer with a boutique feeling to their wines. I am a fan of several of their wines. And, if you are looking for a dessert wine, I highly recommend their Cerise. It is fabulous with dark chocolate. Marie and I talked about a new winery that Chateau Chantal is partnering with: Hawthorne Vineyards and Winery.
