    Beautiful facility with beautifully landscaped grounds. Take a walk in the garden after you've tasted their wine. It was nice that they didn't rush us through our tasting; they encouraged us to take o...  more »

    Absolutely rewarding excursion who for example in Santa Rosa has to complete a beautiful afternoon with a wine tasting. Nice shop with bar - be sure the stairs into the basement - it offers great views of the wine storage. Enjoy on the terrace outside with views of the vineyards and the truly beautiful garden a glass wine - Cabernet is really good but also of Sauvignon Blanc. Be sure through the garden, colorful flowers and cork trees run (small gate). Definitely worth a visit!

    This place is amazing. The wine, chocolate, service, view, gardens and tasting room were all excellent. Hector is awesome. If we could score it a 10, we would...truly perfect experience.  more »

    Absolutely BREATHTAKING grounds and consistently good wines. You will enjoy your visit here! I removed two stars for the "Reserve Bartender" downstairs. Right as we sat down the first thing we heard was, "You got 15 minutes, what would you like?" Then he when someone else came in a few minutes later, he loudly exclaimed, "Well, I'm not getting out on time tonight!" and then "The boss frowns on overtime." Finally, my absolute favorite statement of contempt for the customer was the apropo, "See, we close at five but I still have to cleanup! Most people don't realize that!" again, basically announced to the room. A piece of advice, if you don't enjoy the service industry, leave it.

    Beautiful grounds, excellent wine, and very approachable and friendly staff. Many times these big name wineries with grand facilities can be touristy and impersonal, but Ferrari Carano has managed to make things feel welcoming. There are two tasting bars, one upstairs offering a flight of the widely distributed wines for $10 and another downstairs, offering higher end, single vineyard, etc wines for $25. The fee is waived for a $50 purchase. We chose the standard $10 option since we wanted a tat set of what's offered in stores and you could actually choose 5 of about a dozen different wines, whatever you wanted! We were treated to a couple more dessert wines on top of that and left with a few bottles. Use your Visa Signature card and get another 10% off. We will be back!

    Beautiful gardens. Great wines. I recommend sitting on the terrace looking out at the vineyards. Was there this past weekend and it was wonderful!

    Worth a stop for every traveler. This is one of the only full production vineyards that you can visit in the area and has incredible Italian style Californian wines.

    Impressive Vineyard! Very big, absolutely beautiful. I'd highly recommend to sit outside with your glass of wine as the view is fabulous. It looks a little like Toscany
