Fairplay Vineyard House

The Fairplay vineyard house was designed and built as two homes. John Smith the founder of Oakstone Winery and his wife Susan occupied the upper levels of the home which features three bedrooms, two baths, a three-car garage, spacious warp-around deck, and walk-in pantry  The lower level was built as separate living quarters for John and Susan’s adult children who would often visit the estate. The downstairs features one-bedroom, one bath, a spacious living room and kitchenette and has its own separate entrance for privacy. 

The original De Cascabel Vineyard was planted by the noted vineyard manager Ron Mansfield of Goldbud Farms. The nine acres of include Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Mourvèdre, Charbono, Pinot Grigio, Dolcetto, Petite Sirah and Merlot. These vineyards continue to be professionally managed by a well-known vineyard manager, producing above average tonnage of high-quality fruit.  Every year all the fruit is sold to local and Napa Valley wineries at or above district average prices.   

The distinctive quality of fruit from this vineyard and others locally has earned national recognition as a designated AVA, American Viticultural Area, by the TTB a division under the U.S. Department of Treasury. Fairplay today features over 30 wineries and tasting rooms open to the public.

Oakstone became one of the largest wineries in the area featuring a 10,000 sq. foot winery and tasting room. Unfortunately, the winery was destroyed by a fire in  2012. Oakstone continues the tradition of premium award-winning wines at affordable prices in a new nearby location. 

The footprint of the old Oakstone Winery remains. The 60X125 cement pad and the infrastructure for another winery is in place and waiting to be built. Other uses may be as an  entertainment venue or wine storage facility. 

The Fairplay Vineyard House is a lovely home for those seeking a rural lifestyle. The totally private downstairs guest home with separate entrance, is a perfect set up for the multi-generational family. 

The main house and the downstairs apartment have been evaluated by Airbnb and Vrbo as having significant income potential. The owned solar system reduces and special agriculture tax district, keeps expenses to a minimum.
