Rhine house, March 1992 by D70 Via Flickr: The Rhine House, a Victorian mansion on the property of the Beringer Vineyards, was constructed in 1884 as the Beringer family’s residence.
Beringer Vineyards is a large winery in St. Helena, California. Founded in 1876, Beringer Vineyards is “the oldest continuously operating winery in the Napa Valley”, and is thus listed under both the National Register of Historical Places and as a California Historical Landmark. In 1934 it was the first California winery to offer public tours and wine tasting following Prohibition’s repeal. In 1939, Beringer invited attendees of the Golden Gate International Exposition to visit the winery; the winery also invited Hollywood stars including Clark Gable, Charles Laughton, and Carole Lombard to visit.
The Beringer family sold the Beringer name and winery to Nestlé in 1971, which in 1996 subsequently sold the enterprise to a group led by Texas Pacific Group; the company went public the next year. From 2000 to 2011 the winery was owned by Foster’s Group. As of 2011, it is owned by Treasury Wine Estates.

Modern AU with magic where mages are still required to attend the Circle but are allowed to leave once they pass the Harrowing. There are still many restriction on the mages and what they can do compared to a non-magical person and mage rights activism is a thing.
Anders is in his late teens when he tries to escape from the Circle but he is caught. He is sent to a harsher, more strict “program” that rehabilitates problematic mage teenagers. A part of his rehabilitation program is that, in order to make these delinquent teens more adapted to society, the mages are given various jobs around the city, with their magic silenced and while wearing a tracker.
Because Anders hasn’t actually been violent towards other people using his magic, he’s give the “reward” job of working at a noble’s house as a house worker, instead of other harder jobs like public construction. But because of Anders’ tendencies to get mouthy and spout insults, his tracker also prevents him from speaking for more than a few words at a time.
Anders is assigned to the Amell mansion and the Hawke family living there.
