The Château

A Wine Country Landmark

The Domaine Carneros château is a California wine country landmark. Inspired by the classic 18th century Château de la Marquetterie in Champagne, France - home of Champagne Taittinger - the Domaine Carneros château was completed in 1989.

Situated atop a knoll surrounded by estate, the château brings to Carneros the elegant style of the French wine country. With its grand staircase, formal gardens, expansive outdoor terraces, marble-floored fireside salon and breathtaking views of vine-covered hills, it is an incomparably royal setting for savoring fine sparkling and still wines, and for events.

Styled after a French carriage house, the Pinot Noir production area is situated behind the main château. Completed in 2003, this state-of-the-art facility houses what was at that time the largest solar collection system of any winery in the world. It is also the exquisite setting of our Château Society members-only Club Room and Terrace.
