Vintage after vintage, Ferrari-Carano produces wines that exhibit remarkable consistency, style and elegance – from delicate and seamless Sauvignon Blancs and Chardonnays to rich and complex Cabernet Sauvignons. Ferrari-Carano is one of the region’s leaders, setting the bar for the highest standard in exquisite hospitality, an unwavering commitment to quality and wines that enhance the pleasures of gracious entertaining – quality without compromise is reflected in every bottle of wine.
Ferrari-Carano is the only winery I would recommend as a must-see. The grounds are spectacular and the gardens out front are more than worth a stop. Be sure to head downstairs to the cellar. The staff is always very knowledgeable and friendly.
This is the most beautiful winery I have been to, ever. I felt like I was transported to Italy. My group did a tasting and we enjoyed it, but honestly any experience here will be overshadowed by the beautiful views and gardens. This is a must visit.
