Chateau Cheese & Wine Pairing on 5/06/17 2:00 PM

Stunning winery, grounds and setting. Great wine and cheese. However, we arrived on time for our 2 p.m. reservation and weren't seated until close to 2:30 p.m. (We were comp'd a glass of wine as a result.) Also, there was a massive derby-themed auction going on the day we were there, taking up the entire view of the vineyards and very loud. I would not have booked had I known about it.

From the time we were greeted until we finished the wonderful Charcuterie and wine tasting, our experience could not have been better. Quality of the newly introduced cheese selection plate was outstanding and wine pairings could not have been better. It was my wife's 70th birthday and the time spent at the Chateau was fantastic. The Chateau is a gorgeous facility.

NOT ONLY DID HE EDUCATE US ON THE DIFFERENT WINES BUT CONVERSED LIKE WE WERE OLD FRIENDS. IF YOU HAVE THE TIME TO VISIT CHATEAU ST. JEANS, TAKE THE TIME.

Lovely, elegant dining room setting with a beautiful view of the vineyards & hills for our charcuterie & wine pairing. Wonderful pairing of cheese, (marscapone, toma & aged gouda), blanched almonds, tapenade, dried cranberries, salumi & various crackers so we could all experiment with the wines & charcuterie flavors. The large retail room was also pleasant, nice gift items & friendly staff.

Made reservations for this event and something happened, our reservations were deleted. When I called to explain that we were planning on coming to pick up our wine club selection that day as well, I was told the event was filled up and no more room for us. They allowed members to bring 4 guests each and did not leave enough room for members. Poor planning! Cancelling our club membership.
