Explore the Chateau

European Charm in a Historic Sonoma Valley Estate

The original Chateau was built as a summer home in the early 1920s for Ernest and Maude Goff and their children. Though the surrounding land was initially planted to white wine grapes, prohibition soon curtailed grape growing throughout the valley, and the property was replanted to prunes and walnuts.

When Chateau St. Jean was established in 1973, the decision was made to preserve the Goff legacy, and the Chateau was fully restored and opened to the public. It has since been listed in the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
