About Domaine Chardonnay

It starts with a dream… March 2016

33810 Madera de Playa has long been a successful Chardonnay vineyard, one of the oldest in the valley, and was purchased from the original owners by Laura Stearn with Michael Wieters in 2016. They had a dream of designing and building their own custom home in the middle of a vineyard, living the good life, being closer to nature, farming their own land, making wine and sharing the experience with others.

A year and a half of designing, six months of obtaining permits, and a little over a year to build Domaine Chardonnay, it was quite a procedure. Every step was fascinating, exciting, inspiring and arduous at the same time.

The foundation of a very large house poured! June 2018

Michael’s design of Domaine Chardonnay is inspired by a small village in the Loire Valley of France complete with a little medieval Chapel, and it fits right in to the middle of our 5 acre Chardonnay vineyard as if it was always there and meant to be.
