About Domaine Chardonnay

It starts with a dream… March 2016


Domaine Chardonnay is one of Temecula Wine Country’s premier properties and an exclusive private estate Bed & Breakfast with only 3 rooms on its five acre vineyard property.

The address 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 but Mike & Laura never took their sights off their end vision and they poured themselves in to every single project.

Michael’s beautiful, timeless 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 to share with you, with its posh decor designed by Laura down to the smallest detail. Its blossomed in to one of the most beautiful and top rated boutique hotel in Temecula complete now with a working private winery where Mike and Laura farm their vineyards organically and make some of the best wines in the valley exclusively for Domaine’s guests and followers.
