From award winning Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon to captivating Merlot and Gewurztraminer, you will discover wines to please your palate, at tastings created with you in mind."

Personal comments: Chateau St. Jean is one of the gems of the northern Sonoma Valley, with enchanting grounds and a large tasting room with plenty of wine-related products to shop for as well as great wine to taste. If you are anywhere near this place, make it a must-stop. And if you're there during nice picnic weather, plan to picnic here. -- Roy Tennant
