Chateau St. Jean, with its gracious Sonoma Valley style, elegant architecture, inviting gardens and inviting tasting spaces, is the quintessential Sonoma winery. The estate is found at the foot of Sugarloaf Ridge in a stunning setting. Founded in 1973, Chateau St. Jean has long been recognized as a leader in vineyard designated wines, helping to establish Sonoma's finest growing regions. Winemaker Margo Van Staaveren will complete her 40th harvest at Chateau St. Jean this year, and brings that rich history to bear as she selects the best blocks and barrels to craft critically acclaimed Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Margo was named a Wine Enthusiast Winemaker of the Year, and Chateau St. Jean Cinq Cepages was named the number one wine of the year by the Wine Spectator.
