About Gaetan Menth

Clos Du Chene is conveniently tucked away in a private neighborhood in the heart of wine country. Growing up local to the area has given me an advantage on what attractions and activities will create the most memerable vacation. Converting my family home into a vacation rental has evolved into a career choice for myself. After majoring in Tourism in college, I have dedicated my time to ensuring our clients experience this breathtaking county like one of the locals.

Gaetan Menth purchased this villa in 2003

Why Gaetan Menth chose Santa Rosa

Our family owned vineyard is spacious enough to truly give the aroma of being tucked away in a European Villa. The entire property was a custom build, completely designed by the owners. While visiting wine country, you will get the full experience by having gorgeous community views, all while having the seclusion of a private estate. Located in the Chalk Hill Appellation, Clos Du Chene vineyard truly gives 'Wine Country Estate' a new meaning.

Tuscany in California and Best Host!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a house in wine country to have an intimate wedding weekend and this house was perfect for that purpose! The property is absolutely gorgeous and perfect for entertaining and parties. There's a heated pool, hot tub, grill, outdoor pizza oven, lawn games, and plenty of places to hang out both inside and outside the house. The location is ideal because it's away from the touristy parts of wine country and close to the more local, family-run wineries of Healdsburg and Geyserville. We had a wonderful day of wine tasting in the area. Gaetan, the owner of the property, is the best. He was extremely responsive, reasonable, and a genuinely nice guy. He really understands what being a great host is all about and was the reason we had such a positive experience. If you're looking for a relaxing getaway in wine country that will make you feel like you've escaped to Tuscany, stay here!

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for my mothers birthday and it was the perfect weekend getaway for our entire family and significant others! We loved spending time out by the pool. Gaetan was very accommodating to our needs and was very responsive whenever we had questions. The house was well equipped with everything we needed for the weekend. We would highly recommend this rental to anyone, especially a bigger group!

Amazing estate!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was simply amazing. We were a group of five couples so were not expecting to have much privacy for the weekend. This estate had the perfect separation of space. Also, I have rented many properties and they typically have that "rental" feel. This property feels like a true home. Gaetan personally greeted us at the front door and was friendly and attentive to our every need when we requested his service. We certainly hope to have the opportunity to stay there again. Thank you Gaetan for our wonderful stay.

Beautiful, immaculate home! Great for groups!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough wonderful things about Clos du Chene and Gaetan...the home is immaculate and perfect for our group of 5 couples. There is everything you could possibly need in the home and plenty of room to spread out and relax. Gaetan met us upon arrival and was the perfect host. We can't wait for our next trip to Sonoma and will definitely be staying at Clos du Chene!
