Choose Between Two Options

  • $50 for a private wine tasting for two (a $100 value)
  • $80 for a private wine tasting for four (a $160 value)

Tasters tour the winery before retiring to a private tasting room where a knowledgeable winemaker provides complimentary, take-home stemware with up to 10 samples of the winery’s wines. Each one-hour tasting includes a baguette and cheeses to pair with wines. Though not included in this Groupon, customers may take home bottles of their favorite wines (with bottle prices from $15.95 for entry-level wine to $34.95 for aged French oak chardonnay). Chateau Aeronautique Winery is open for private wine tastings for this Groupon from Friday through Monday by appointment.

Chateau Aeronautique Winery

Lorenzo Lizarralde's two passions—winemaking and aeronautics—may seem unrelated, but they coexist in harmony at Chateau Aeronautique Winery. There, the winery shares its space with an airplane hangar and grass runway on which the vintner frequently lands his 1956 Cessna 172. Fermented from Michigan grapes, the chateau's handcrafted wines span the gamut, from dry to semisweet, wafting strawberry bouquets, apricot aromas, and floral notes.

To spotlight his elixirs, Lorenzo regularly hosts events amid his idyllic environs, which take inspiration from the wineries in Bordeaux, France. Guests traipse across the grounds en route to a gazebo or the hangar, where they can revel with up to 80 fellow sippers. For more intimate flavor exploration, they flock to a private tasting room, replete with an ornate, wooden bar that provides the coziness of a grandparent's wine cellar, but with more wine and fewer Clark Gable posters.
