We visited this nice place while in Santa Rosa. The place is just amazing with nice gardens and facilities. We tried many tasteful appetizers and a wide range of local wines. They have a nice shop inside as well. Staff is very friendly. You must visit this place while in Sonoma.

We and another couple had reserved the Chateau Wine and Cheese pairing. This location is a beautiful villa and grounds . The wines were excellent particularly with the cheese pairings Reserve Merlot and Cinq Cepages were our favorites.
The one downside to the visit was our host was serving 3 tables for this experience and was able to provide only about a 10 second description of each wine and cheese so the informative, interactive experience was lacking. We have experienced hosts at other wineries such as Ledson who easily handled three tables of their VIP tasting while providing a great experience. They need to either add staff or lengthen the overall time period.
This visit did provide us with an excellent look at the small production wine side of Chateau St. Jean's business ..................liked them enough to join the wine club

This was a great experience; the wine tasting was very cozy and personal for our group of 3, and we overlooked a vineyard as we sampled wines paired with cheese and crackers. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and I got some lovely photos there.

The grounds alone are worth the visit. The wines we tasted were very good. (We bought a case of their take on Meritage, "Cinq Cepages." Taste some wine, play some bocce. Stroll through the gardens. It was very pleasant indeed.

Sonoma valley has tons of wineries but just a few have the beauty to go along with the beauty of the wines. We choose the tastings of strictly red wines. While all were good, the one that stood out to us was the 2013 Eight five fifty five. Of course my taste buds chose the most expensive at $70 a bottle.
The folks behind the tasting bar was very nice and not pushy.
Worth a stop when doing the sonoma valley wineries
