If you are a Candace Cameron Bure fan, you will know that she has a love for Jesus and wine. This spectacular woman is known for her many talents: actress, author, talk-show host, "Dancing With the Stars" competitor, and now, winemaker.
In 1994, Candace and her husband Valeri Bure fell in love and got married. Just seven years later, the couple fell in love with something else: Napa Valley.
"We couldn't believe this place exists," Valeri said about their new estate, which is only an hour flight from L.A. "You feel like you're in a different country, in a different part of the world. It's magical, you know?"
The Bure family live in Los Angeles where Candace can work on the set of the Netflix original series, "Fuller House," and on the set for "Hallmark Channel."
Candace and Valeri have had a second home in the Napa Valley since 2006, but knew something was missing. After Valeri's hockey career came to an end, he knew what he wanted to do.
After retiring, many people pick up hobbies such as gardening, sewing, or golfing, but for Valeri, he wanted something different. He wanted to be a winemaker.
Valeri is from Moscow and moved to the United States in 1991 to play hockey. He has played for 11 years for the NHL and is a two-time Olympic medalist. He hung up his skates in 2005.
In 2006, the Bure family launched their new company: "Bure Family Wines." At the time, the couple used purchased grapes. In 2011, they decided to purchase the 2-acre parcel which had a 3-bedroom, 1960 ranch house. Which they called a "straight fixer-upper."
“We came across this great property that had an existing home but needed a lot of work done to it,” Candace tells PEOPLE. “But the land was great, and it enabled us to have estate grapes.”
Valeri was basically the project manager during the whole renovation. He hired a local architect, Michael Roche, who re-designed their entire house. He also installed floor-to-ceiling picture windows in the dining nook.
"It was actually perfect because we didn't feel bad knocking any walls down or tearing anything up," Candace said about the nearly 60-year-old home. "We had no guilt."
The house was gutted. With walls torn down, added windows, and updated appliances, the 1960 house has a fresh, new look.
Outside, the couple installed a breath-taking patio which features an enormous pizza oven—a place where Candace spends most of her time. The ranch house has a basement, which the Bure's decided to renovate it into a wine cellar housing nearly 1,500 bottles.
"We were very happily surprised at how good it came out, but we keep tweaking, we keep tweaking every year," Valeri said.
