Special Notes

Five acres of gardens, private tastings and tours by appointment, gift shop, wine club discounts and events


Inspired by the natural beauty of Northern Sonoma County, Rhonda and Don Carano first bought land in the Alexander Valley in 1979, and founded Ferrari-Carano Vineyards and Winery in 1981. Since then, their conviction that grape source and terroir are paramount in creating quality wines has led them to acquire 19 distinct estate vineyards in five separate appellations. As a result, the Ferrari-Carano portfolio is a true testament to the region, expressing the aromas and flavors of valleys within valleys of Sonoma County and beyond.

It’s only fitting that such an iconic list be presented to wine tourists in a gracious setting. Ferrari-Carano’s spectacular Italianate hospitality wine center, Villa Fiore, provides this and more. Situated in the heart of the winery’s picturesque 70-acre Dry Creek Valley vineyard, there are plenty of ways to while away an afternoon. Guests are welcome to stroll through five acres of beautifully landscaped gardens (famous in their own right); take a free tour through the tank room, barrel cellars, crush pad, and nearby vineyards; and reserve a private Ferrari-Carano tasting. 

The Villa Fiore Wine Shop & Tasting Room is an elegant Italian-influenced marketplace, with unique Sonoma wine country gift items, and a dramatic curved mahogany and black granite tasting bar overlooking the sweeping vineyard. Here, guests may sample new release wines and a host of others, like Bella Luce, Ferrari-Carano’s unique refreshing white blend featuring Chardonnay, Moscato, and Sauvignon Blanc; many distinctive Chardonnays; food friendly and luscious mountain reds; and decadent dessert wines. Guests wishing to take their tasting to another level may literally do so by descending the curving stone staircase to the cellar and sampling Limited Release and Reserve wines in the Enoteca. 

Known for its impeccable ability to craft high quality wines year after year, Ferrari-Carano has earned its place on every wine tourist’s “must-visit” list.
