Chateau on the Lake is proud to spotlight Crown Valley and other Missouri wineries to help bring attention to Missouri’s professional winemaking industry. “First-time visitors at the Chateau are often very surprised by what they find,” said Chateau Vice President and General Manager Stephen Marshall. “When I visited Crown Valley Winery, I had the same reaction. It’s a very professional operation in a beautiful rural setting. We wanted to bring a piece of it here for our Vintner Dinner Series so that our residents and visitors could experience the unique pleasure of fine wine together with expertly-prepared gourmet cuisine.”
