About the property

Estate, 5 Bedrooms + Den, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)

Chalone Pinnacles House is a 40 Acre 5,000 Square foot estate surrounded by Chalone Vineyards. This is the location of many famous Chalone stock holder parties. 3 wineries are within 5 minutes and 7 more within 20.

The house is perfect for 5 couples or 3 families of four. The views are stunning from nearly every room, deck, patio, pool, and jacuzzi.

There is also spectacular hiking at Pinnacles National Monument. We are 5 minutes from the western entrance. Pinnacles is very different with unusual talus caves and streams. You will probably see California condors. 5 hikes are available. Two easy and three pretty strenuous.

Hang by the pool in the sun. No fog up here at 1500 feet. The star gazing is spectacular. We are a 15 minute drive off of Highway 101. Super quiet.

There are 8 restaurants to 10 15 minutes away that can do take out.

Tons of activities. Super Setting. Historic California Property.

I can not believe we were lucky enough to buy this beautiful estate.

HOUSE DETAILS: Three levels. Upper, Middle, and Lower

The UPPER level has 2 big bedrooms (one king one queen) with gorgeous views and very private decks with a large bathroom between them.

The MIDDLE level has the entry, large kitchen, dinning room, pantry, and 2 large bedrooms (kings) with large bath in between. These rooms all have beautiful views. The bedrooms also have nice private patios with chaise lounges. There is also a bedroom (twins) with nearby bath. This room is the only room in the house with no view. Short straw gets this room. There is a huge patio off of the dining room with lots of room and jaw dropping views.

The LOWER level has the living room, den, large bath, half bath, wine cellar, and pool/media room. There is a fold outs in the pool room and one in the den to take the sleeping capacity from 10 to 14. This level opens up to the pool, the large patio around the pool, and the jacuzzi. All with stunning views.

About Bert

My name is Bert Fornaciari. My wonderful wife Linda and my son Jack, and daughter Carol are delighted to be fortunate enough to

let you enjoy Chalone Pinnacles House. We live in Portola Valley, California

Bert purchased this estate in 2012

Why Bert chose Central Coast

This is a one of a kind property. It was built by the CEO of Chalone Wine Group. The first high end winery to go public. The builder of this house built up Chalone Winery then expanded the legacy of great wines with the acquisitions of: Accacia, Edna Valley, Carmenet, and Canoe Ridge. Later he sold Chalone Wine Group to Diageo a public premium beverage company that also owns Tanqueray, Dom Perignon, Cuervo and many other brands

What makes this estate unique

Gorgeous Views, Amazing Stars, Great Food, Quality wine selection. Super nice staff. This is my third vrbo property and I plan to make it be very high end but at a price many can afford.

Unforgettable!

  • 5 of 5

The Chalone Vineyard Estate was more than anyone could ask for. Beautiful grounds, breathtaking views and a beautiful home. We were a group of 10 and the house had more than enough space for everyone and tons of activities. The pool is warm throughout the day and night, enjoy bike riding, ping pong and a game of pool. We are already thinking of booking this home again in the spring. The owner Bert is very accommodating and helpful as well. Thanks again for a wonderful stay.

If we could purchase this home, we would...

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this beautiful home 4 times, and each time I go back I am always in awe of the beauty of this home and its views. We love, love, love staying here. There is so much space, the pool is heated, the hot tub overlooks beautiful vines, and we just have the BEST time at Chalone every time. Can't recommend this place enough.

Another Lovely Weekend at the P-House

  • 5 of 5

A family tradition for us and everything was wonderful, as usual. We look forward to seeing the house and spending warm quality time every year and start looking forward to the next year's visit from the moment we leave! Thanks for a great house and backdrop for our weekends among the vineyards.

Very big house in an epic landscape

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the house do not do justice to the grand scale of the house. Bert, the owner, was responsive, helpful, and generous. Your front yard is literally a vineyard. The views stretch out over the vineyards and to the mountains along the coast. The heated pool is a great temperature. There are two refrigerators, a six burner stove, and at least two ovens.

Amazing view, pool and game room.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time spending the weekend with friends in Bert's house. The views and pool were perfect. The game room was also wonderful. And, the kitchen was fun to cook in and easy for group cooking and cleanup- two fridges, two dishwashers, two sides of island with 6 burners in the middle. And, Bert was very accommodating with supplies. It is a great country vacation house, and it was comfortable for kids and adults. We would love to return.

There is a small driving range (you have to retrieve the golf balls) Private Wine Cellar and wine tasting, 6 mountain bikes.

Mountain Climbing instruction available (extra) It's also fun to play wiffle ball golf around the property. There are 8 to 10 restaurants that can do take out 15 minutes away. You can also play whiffle ball golf on the property. For real golf you might want to play on the way to the property say Friday afternoon in San Jose, Monterey or Salinas. Or maybe play after you check out on Sunday on the way home.
