We weren't very interested in tasting wines here as they are so commercially available, so we opted for the tour instead. It is complementary, and a great look into a more commercialized production facility. Neat technology is being utilized. Tour guide was very nice, but unable to answer some basic questions such as "how much do you produce", "how many barrels are here", etc. The gardens and winery building are absolutely gorgeous. Lovely views. This would be an awesome place to have a wedding or event.

Not the best wines (in my humble opinion) but don't pass it up as you don't want to miss the views and gardens.

The gardens at Ferrari Carano are amazing. They warrant the stop even without the winery tour and tasting. Informative tour. Several options for tastings.

This winery was probably one of my favorites on my visit to the wine country. This was a work/pleasure trip for us as we own restaurants and bars and as such we went on a production tour of the facility before our tastings. What stands out immediately is how beautiful the property and surrounding properties are. Lots and lots of phenomenal photo opportunities to take advantage of here from iron sculptures to lush gardens and rollings hills with countless rows of grapes. We went to the underground room for our tasting, which was really quite impressive. We carry ferrari carano wines but some of the wines you taste here on not mass produced and were delicious. In particular I thought they had the best malbec I have ever had, which I never would have suspected from them. Definitely worth the trip. Although be careful on the trip over... our GPS led us astray and we were lost for a solid 15 minutes.

We toured 7 wineries as part of Winter Wineland 2013 and this was by far the best. First it is a lovely location--beautiful estate house and lovely gardens you can walk through. The tasting experience was great--in a scenic winery building among barrels. There were four wine tastings--and each was paired with a food--Pinot Grigio paired with goat cheese bruschetta, Chardonnay with Chicken Pot Pie, Cab Sauvignon with Beef Stew, and Baci--a sweet Zinfandel with a cherry chocolate cupcake. We will return another time for sure; we also bought the Baci to take home.
