Belle Terre Vineyard – Alexander Valley
For more than three decades, Belle Terre Vineyard has been synonymous with vineyard designation at Chateau St. Jean and, without question it is one of the most consistent and well-farmed vineyards in Sonoma. Belle Terre Vineyard, owned by the Dick Family, is located on the Russian River in Southern Alexander Valley. Chateau St. Jean has produced a Belle Terre Chardonnay since 1975. The terrain at Belle Terre consists of gently rolling land with well-drained, gravelly and sandy loam soils. In addition to a vineyard designated Chardonnay, Chateau St. Jean also crafts a Belle Terre Late Harvest Riesling and the Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from the vineyard contributes to Cinq Cépages.
