At the center of our Sonoma Valley estate, the Chateau and its surrounding gardens exude the beauty and grace that distinguish both the winery and its Sonoma County wines.

The original Chateau was built as a summer home in the early 1920s for Ernest and Maude Goff and their children. Originally from Saginaw, Michigan, the family made its fortune in Michigan iron mines and Pacific Northwest lumber.

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. Today, surrounded by our 250 acre esate, the two-story, 3550-square-foot historic home hosts our reserve tastings as well as numerous private events, and serves as a stately backdrop as brides and grooms say “I Do” throughout the year.

"Chateau St. Jean’s tasting rooms provide the perfect place to experience our wines on a romantic getaway, or with friends old and new." - North Bay Business Journal
