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

This was a place I wanted to love, and didn't. If your goal is wine expertise go elsewhere. If you want a pretty place to wine-taste and don't really care about the experience, this is your place. We went to the downstairs Enoteca and not one of the wines we chose was remarkable. More importantly, the service was just dismal... More

The wine is great but the facility and grounds are amazing! A must for visitors! The cellar is beautiful with another great tasting room.

In complete transparency, we would give the vineyard grounds 5 stars for the gardens and location, and 2 stars for the actual tasting experience. So we’ll net out at 3 with the advice that people should come for the Gardens, but don’t bother with the energy-less rote statements in the premium tasting lounge downstairs – you can do much better...

We visited Healdsburg and had an incredibly full schedule planned for our stay. We were not sure if we would be able to make it to Ferrari-Carano. So glad we took the time to visit. Grounds are simply stunning, a must see if you are in the area..

I have been drinking the Ferrari Carano Reserve Chardonnay for almost 20 years and enjoyed many of their other wines on a pretty much regular basis as well however....never made it to their Winery. What a mistake! This is by far THE most beautiful, friendly and accomodating winery in the Napa Valley area. WOW is all I can say, what... More

We took the 10am tour and then scheduled a private tasting. The tour was about an hour. Our tour guide, Brian, was informative and took us through the gardens, the large storage room for fermentation, out to the fields to see the grapes and back down to the main hospital it area with a barrel storage room in the basement....

We have our regular Ferrari-Carano favorites at home but this visit was an eye opener. Turned us on to the taste of some fabulous Chardonnays and Sauvignon Blancs. We are so glad we visited!

Very impressive facility with the surrounding gardens as nice as we have seen in both Napa and Sonoma. Everything was well maintained both in the building and outside of the building. They have a beautiful tasting patio overlooking their vineyards which we all had a hard time leaving. Our wine choice after many tastings, was their Sauvignon Blanc. It was... More
