Property Highlights


French Oak Ranch® is a private, family-owned, 300 acre ranch situated just past the quaint intersection of Calistoga and Saint Helena Roads. 


This property isn't anything like the typical Wine Country, commercialized vineyard venue. This is a rare, organic and untouched, blank canvas for you to create your perfect event. Host your special occasion in the fresh air and gorgeous Oak savanna, near the large beautiful lake where wildlife come to drink, inside the simplistic horse barn, or across many different locations throughout the property. When evening comes, your guest will be delighted to watch the colorful sunset and its beautiful reflections in the lake, the moon rising over the hills and shining directly over the lake and the star-spattered sky. Ample and gated parking is available for your guests, limousines, busses and shuttles. This is a truly unique and breathtaking property that is completely secluded. The sky is the limit on what you can create.

The Barn
