John & Alyson Lasgoity own and operate Chateau Lasgoity, a boutique winery located in Madera producing premium quality wines. Nestled amongst old, gnarled vines, the winery is located on the vineyard property that has been in their family since 1903. The Lasgoitys and their three children, Julia, Claire and Paul, currently live in the original home which was built in 1906 and is just across the white rock driveway from the winery. Tradition plays a big part in Chateau Lasgoity -  John is the latest winemaker in a long line of winemakers. His great-grandfather, Jean Ospital, and grandfather, Jean Lasgoity, made wine from local grapes for the family and their sheepherders for whom they provided bed and board. In fact, the family home has a cellar where the wine was stored during the warm summer months. John can still remember going into the cellar to taste their grandfather’s wine. The tradition moved full circle in 2000 with the creation of Chateau Lasgoity making premium quality wines from grapes raised with attentive care by his father, Mitch Lasgoity. The winery has a tasting room which is open Sat & Sun 1-5PM.

John Lasgoity was born and raised in Madera, California and received a BS degree from Cal Poly in Agriculture Business. He has worked in the family business since graduation, managing farming that includes cotton and alfalfa and owns the sheep operation. John took his enology courses through the UC Davis Extension Service after he had graduated and was already working on the family ranch. He had been making wine for family for 14 years when Chateau Lasgoity was created.
