We are wine club members (which I highly recommend). We came up for harvest weekend and it was one of best weekends my husband and I have ever had. The staff was amazing, the wine is amazing, the grounds are amazing! They have had the same vineyard manager and winemaker for over 20 years which means they are consistent and... More

I've been saying that Ferrari-Carano wines are the best for years, and we've been meaning to pay a visit to their Sonoma Valley winery forever. We made it for our 2nd anniversary, and all I can say is "WOW!" Didn't expect it to be so glorious...we stumbled into a magical garden area with small waterfalls and bridges and twisty creeks...

We participated in the wine club's harvest weekend grape picking and winemaker's dinner. Our hostess, Teri Rolleri, wine club manager, is just the best. She makes every event a party, with FC's wonderful wines, lots of laughs, and great food. We picked beautiful Sangiovese clusters early morning with vineyard manager Steve and winemaker Sarah, and their team of field workers,... More

The building and grounds make you believe that you are in Tuscany. The garden and grounds are perfectly manicured. They are beautiful and free. The winery building it self is gorgeous. The wine is very good as well. If you are in the area, it is well worth a stop. Unfortunately, they do not allow you to picnic.

What a beautiful place! Very well manicured grounds and a must to walk the beautiful gardens. The winery is gorgeous and you can see into the barrel room. Wonderful wine as we'll.

This has been a favorite winery for ours for 20 years. It's one of the most beautiful settings in the wine country. I love their white wines and desert wines. There is a very nice gift shop as well.

Our friends, who had been here before, made sure we stopped by. Come for the wonderful wine selections and gifts, but stay to walk the gardens and the countryside. One of the most beautiful wineries I have ever visited. That includes Germany, Virginia (sic) and North Carolina? After all, we are from the East Coast. Anytime I'm allowed to taste... More

Passing through wine country on our way home from a summer vacation we stopped at Ferrari-Carano for their 10 am tour. James was our guide, and he couldn't have been nicer. He gave us a history of the winery and took us on a tour of the wine making process. The gardens alone are worth a visit. We felt like... More

Ferrari-Carano Vineyard This winery and vineyard was so spectacularly beautiful and in the Dry Creek Valley (photo attached) and a couple of miles from Lake Sonoma!  The owners, Don and Rhonda Carano, own the Eldorado Hotel and Casino in Reno and have put their proceeds to good (in our opinion) and opulent use.  Called Villa Fiore (House of Flowers), the Mediterranean mansion...
