Created in 1973 from a family’s dream to build a world-class winery in the heart of Sonoma County, Chateau St. Jean has evolved through the years to become a shining example of a fine wine estate with European style. The hallmark of Chateau St. Jean is balanced and elegant wines that capture the essence of the storied vineyards they hail from. In the California tier, wines showcase vineyards from the finest growing regions statewide, pairing coastal expressions from the north and south to offer everyday wines that are highly accessible, with a signature profile that is distinctly Chateau St. Jean.
Our crisp Chardonnay represents the true fruit characteristics of Chardonnay without the influence of oak. Notes of bright lemon, fresh pear and apple blossom lead to a palate with flavors of nectarines and citrus. Natural acidity shines through the refreshing finish creating a wine that is perfect for sipping or versatile when pairing with food.
