Sarah Anderson of Chateau Sonoma

Sarah Anderson opened Chateau Sonoma in 2002 after searching for a change in careers. Sick of commuting back and forth to San Francisco, the stars aligned when she and her husband purchased a vacant building just off the Sonoma Square, which later became Chateau Sonoma.

Sarah began her journey as a French importer after meeting Carrie Miller who quickly became her mentor. With Carrie's helping hand, Sarah took her first buying trip to France. The duo rented an apartment in Paris, and traveled to the South of France, stopping at every flea market and fair they could. By the end of the trip, Sarah had a container full of goods to bring back to wine country, and on the plane ride home came up with the name Chateau Sonoma.

Sarah and her husband also own Cornerstone Sonoma, Anderson Ranch, The General's Daughter, Ramekins Culinary School, Events & Inn, 5th Street Farm, Wing & Barrel Ranch, and Tyge William Cellars.
