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.

There is a huge patio off of the dining room with lots of room and jaw dropping views.

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 Monterey County
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.

Sports & Adventure Activities
Enjoyed going t pinnacles daily and returning to home for relaxing time with friends and family. Owners responsed to questions and attentive. Will plan to return.
This house and location is just stunning! You have to see it for yourself...words don’t do it justice. Wonderful for family (with kids if all ages) group trips. The house is very spacious with lots of room ...we were five families and fit very comfortably. So much to do within the house and outside. The owner is very helpful and pleasant. This is our second time staying here and we will definitely be back.
Excellent house, gracious host, fun time!
The house was extremely spacious and had great views of the surrounding area. It’s a great place to be and Bert was really helpful with anything we needed.
Fantastic property & location
We had a large group of friends - 5 married couples and some kids - and wanted to spend time together for the holidays. Property is very nice and has an extra large dining table and another extra large round dining table in the kitchen. Very convenient to spend time together. The huge game room with the pool table was perfect for our teenagers.
It is right next to the Pinnacle Monument. This is probably the closest property. Had a great time hiking there. Finally the property has a nice pool and jacuzzi.
Bottom line- it has everything you can ask for in a superb location. I would strongly recommend this property for your next vacation.
My guests and I really enjoyed our stay as some of us have been there before. Very spacious and cozy at the same time. It was unfortunate we didnt have running water the last night but that actually made our stay adventurous. Julissa and Luis, the property manager and who assisted us, was super helpful and informative. Great house!
Yes, our bad, we ran out of water one night. I want to thank our guests for getting on the phone and not only calling me (I was out of the country) but also calling Julissa my assistant property manager. Juisa jumped into action and called Luis and Hector who drove up to the house and resolved the problem that night.
Thanks again to our guests who took the extra step of calling Julisa !
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.
