SANTA ROSA, Calif. (October 13, 2020)–Ferrari-Carano Winery and Vineyards has reopened its doors just in time for fall, unveiling a slate of new tasting experiences that showcase its stunning gardens, vineyards and outdoor enclaves. Now part of the Foley family of wineries, Ferrari-Carano’s enhanced tastings build upon its long standing reputation for hospitality excellence and invite guests to embrace the winery’s “Bella Vita” lifestyle. Following a soft re-opening in mid-September, the winery is now open for appointment-only tastings Thursday through Monday from 11:00 to 4:00 p.m., with the first reservation time at 10:30 a.m. and the last at 2:30 p.m.
“Ferrari-Carano Winery has always set a high bar for hospitality,” says Quinn Martin, who recently took the helm as the winery’s Senior Guest Services Manager. “What we’ve done is to simply incorporate more of the property into the experience, putting the stunning gardens and vineyards center stage.”
Fall Tasting Experiences
Sycamore Grove Tasting
Guests are invited to sit amongst the trees in the winery’s shaded Sycamore Grove and experience the winemaker’s favorite wines paired with Italian-inspired bites.

When guests reserve their tasting time, they may add an optional cheese and charcuterie board to make the experience even more memorable.
