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 has prided itself on its talented staff whose expertise in selecting the richest vineyards with the best microclimates, innovative winemaking practices, and tenacious commitment to quality create truly world-class wines. If you have ever been to Chateau St. Jean, you are familiar with the bounty and beauty which surround us. Renowned author Jack London wrote about The Valley of the Moon, the shortened version of the region's original name, given by the Wappo, Miwok and Pomo Indians who were enchanted by the moon that passed seven times over the peaks of the mountains as it rose in the sky.

Our grapes come from a variety of sources our estate vineyards comprise 80 acres of premium varietals, which yield approximately 10% of the total fruit required for our overall production. We also own the La Petite Etoile vineyard, and have 80 additional acres of grapes under long-term lease. The balance of the grapes is purchased from independent growers, most of whom have been working with Chateau St. Jean for several years. We have built our reputation for producing consistently high quality wines around our single-vineyard series, reserve wines, and a mix of styles which provide a winemaker with the perfect palette to allow full expression of the desires for the individual wines. Likewise, if you have tried any of our wines, you know that our winemaker, Mr. Steve Reeder, transforms our grapes into some of the most critically acclaimed wines in the world.
