I always take visitors here. I just took 2 friends who don't drink wine and they enjoyed it. The wine is excellent but there is a beautiful garden to walk through and see cork trees. Also, the view from the patio is stunning. A few bronze statues and a fountain as well. Really worth the visit!

We were staying in low key Healdsburg and I was kind of taken back by the grandiose Ferrari Winery. The place is huge and almost breathtaking. We had arranged for an early wine pairing. Kate, our sommelier, for the private wine tasting started us off with a Savignon Blanc, and it was delicious. The 5 course pairing was one if... More

My wife and I visited this winery a few months ago. From the moment you drive through the gate you get the feeling that this place is different from other Californian wineries. The property has been developed with a blueprint from Bordeaux, and has a distinct French feel. The green, neatly manicured lawns contrast the beautiful white stone path which... More

Went on a tour of the facility before doing a wine tasting. The tour was excellent, so thorough and informative, inside, outside, cellar, machines all aspects of the wine making process. The basic wine tasting in the upstairs tasting room was good the server was a bit aloof and didn't show any interest in helping or talking to us about... More

Come for the view. You will not be disappointed. The wines was very good, too. The view is spectacular and maybe the best in the area.

This is one of the most beautiful settings in Sonoma Valley in a castle and grounds and landscaping worthy of royalty. Very relaxing to just sit here and gaze into the vineyards drinking your wine. The wine is ok but nothing exceptional. So enjoy the moment.

I have tasted at many Napa/Sonoma wineries. This is one of the very best. It was based on a recommendation. The wines are outstanding. Service is friendly, informative and excellent. I had a great experience. The grounds are also beautiful. The casual visitor can taste wines in a friendly atmosphere on the first floor. If you are serious about wine,... More

We stopped by as a friend of mine recommended the experience. We did a Winery Tour followed by a tasting. The entire staff we met were fantastic. Brian was our Wine expert. The tasting was great. The Wine club is a great deal. We were a little skeptical at first, due to the size of this company--but immediately we felt... More

First class winery and a wonderful tour!! The wine is awesome however a little on the pricey side. The garden and grounds are beautiful and everything was accessible for a person with a walker. We would recommend taking the tour before wine tasting and you won't find a more first class place!!

The reason to come here is to see the lovely gardens. This winery has 8 full time gardeners and it shows. The landscape is magnificent, and it feels as if you are at a wine Chateau in France. The tastings are ok and I didn't find anything special to take home. $10 for 5 selections from their list of about... More
