"As winemaker for our white wines and Pinot Noirs, it’s my goal to make complex, seamless delicious wines that reflect the diversity of our vineyards and are balanced in richness and delicacy.”
As winemaker for white wines and Pinot Noirs, Sarah employs gentle winemaking techniques, focusing on single vineyard sites for the Russian River Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, while blending wine for style, quality and the multidimensional complexity that characterizes Ferrari-Carano's other wines.

Sarah then worked at Jordan winery from 1999 to 2003, while also completing a degree in Viticulture and Enology from the University of California, Davis.
