Chateau St Jean

California, the most populous state of the United States, located on the Pacific coast of North America is the home of and wine producing regions such as Santa Barbara and Northern California's Wine Country.
Chateau St. Jean is a winemaking estate located at the foot of Sugarloaf Ridge in the Sonoma Valley near Kenwood, California. Founded in 1973, Chateau St. Jean produces exceptional wines solely for the premium market. From its inception, the winery has provided a talented staff with the highest quality grapes and the finest equipment available to create truly world-class wines. The winery was designed from the ground up to accommodate numerous grapes and keep them separate throughout the winemaking process. Wines from each special vineyard are bottled and marketed separately, with the vineyard name designated on the label. Chateau St. Jean offers vineyard designated Chardonnays from the acclaimed Robert Young, Durell and Belle.
