The Story

Château Saint-Jean is owned by the well-respected Meffre family. His three children inherited their father’s various châteaux and estates, and Château Saint-Jean and Château Raspail went to Gabriel’s youngest son, Christian. He remains the manager, although it is now his own son, François, who runs the estates.
