About our Venue

Since early 1913, G4 Estate, home of Goltermann Gardens in the Cinnabar Valley, has been painstakingly evolving from an egg farm of over 10,000 Leghorn chickens, to what now proves to be one of the most idyllic settings in Sonoma County.

As you enter the property, you will feel a sense of calmness, while simultaneously taking in the serenity that the rustic country elegance that our property provides.The Estate has dedicated approximately five of its several acres to feature a venue poised with such abundance as: gently sloping lawns, mature manicured ornamental grounds, a significant bass pond, and 100′ tall Redwood groves, name just some of what joins together with the majestic country atmosphere that provides our guests with one of the most unique and inspiring backdrops for any event.

G4 Estate offers its country elegance & private garden setting on only a select few dates each year for our clients to host their special events.We are a small family owned and operated venue with deep roots in our local community. We welcome you through our gates to experience what we hold dear – our love of land, our love of family and our love of life!

We welcome you to G4 Estate – where moments become everlasting memories.


About our Speaker

Sharon Dexmier is the owner of Napa Valley Linens. She has been in the linen business for eleven years and counting. This is the story about a woman who didn’t know anything about the rental industry or linens and just jumped in to the deep end of the pool. She has survived incredible competition and has continued to grow her company against all the odds. You are invited to listen to her war stories and the universal lessons that can be applied to any entrepreneur.

Like many entrepreneurs Sharon started her company with an idea and some extra space in her garage. When she quickly outgrew her garage, she realized she was in the linen business. Over the years, Napa Valley Linens has received multiple industry awards and is continually featured in bridal magazines and blog posts. Her linens have been used at State dinners at the White House, the Vatican, and countless weddings and events. Sharon lives on a farm in Sonoma with her husband Jean-Yves, and their two dogs, Nucky and Darla.
