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.
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.
And now the beautiful dream of Domaine Chardonnay has become a reality, with its posh decor designed by Laura down to the smallest detail, elegant vineyard living with vineyards as far as the eye can see, clean fresh air and sunshine that warms your soul… Come staycation with us and experience the good life too!
