Current News:
 
Several disastrous wildfires in Northern California's Napa and Sonoma Valleys have cost many lives and major destruction and damage of homes, businesses and several wineries. The staff and members of www.falconcrest.org are deeply saddened about the loss of so many lives and so much history. We wish our friends in the Wine Country all the best to live through this disaster and have enough strength to rebuild.
At this time, we can provide the following information on some important "Falcon Crest" filming locations:
 
Spring Mountain Vineyard in St. Helena, CA was not affected by the fires.
 
Parts of Stags' Leap Winery outside Napa, CA were damaged. Four "outer" buildings are reported to have been destroyed by the Napa Atlas Peak Fire on 10/09/2017. There is reason to believe that some of the guest houses, one of which portrayed the Nuñez home in seasons 1 and 2, or the garage (the former Carriage House) might have been affected, but we have not been able to determine the extent of damage to these buildings. However, due to some amazing work of the firefighters, Stags' Leap Manor, which portrayed the Gioberti House, remained intact. It had just been beautifully restored in late 2016 after the 2014 South Napa Earthquake. Also, the historic Stone Winery, which served as Stone Briar and later the Gianinni / Gioberti Winery, remained intact.
 
The private residence on Silverado Trail outside Napa, CA, which portrayed Francesca Gioberti's home in season 4, Richard's third Tuscany Valley home during seasons 5 through 7 and Nicole Sauguet's bedroom and bathroom in her London townhouse in # 156, burnt down in the Napa Atlas Peak Fire on 10/09/2017.
 
Silverado Resort, the main filming location of the Del Oro Spa & Country Club, was affected by the Atlas Peak Fire also. While a tent structure from a golf tournament burnt down, the historic Miller Mansion (Silverado's main building) remained unharmed.
