The Villa at Sunstone is made from reclaimed limestone and artifacts from France. This 8,500 square foot Tuscan-inspired event center is now available for location shoots, culinary retreats and dreamy weddings.


The Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Viognier and Syrah grapes from Sunstone's certified organic vineyards are crafted by winemaker (and founder Fred and Linda Rice's son) Bion Rice into wines marked by firm structure with a balanced, sophisticated mouthfeel. Bion strives to translate the unique character of the estate into a wine that is true to the terroir.


Sunstone's tasting room is reminiscent of some of the small wineries in the Provencal French countryside. The gorgeous courtyards and picnic grounds, surrounded by vineyards, provide the perfect place to experience the wines.


Over 5,000 square feet of stone barrel-aging caves are built into the hillside. Winemaker dinners and other special events are held in the tasting room, caves, and courtyard year-round.
