Our Estate and Mountain Wineries
Why Two Winemaking Locations?
Ferrari-Carano's Estate Winery
All Ferrari-Carano wines are vinified and kept in separate lots until blending. Our Fume Blanc is crafted from seven of our estate vineyards in Dry Creek, Alexander and Russian River Valleys. Our Alexander Valley Chardonnay is created from eleven different estate vineyards and is a blend of fourteen different clones and selections. Our Reserve Chardonnay is primarily from our Napa Carneros ranch, and is complemented with fractions of our best lots from our Alexander Valley vineyards. The Russian River Valley Chardonnay series are all single vineyard designates from premier locations in this appellation.
Ferrari-Carano’s Mountain Winery Estate
As with our white wines, our red wines are produced from a variety of different clones and selections from Ferrari-Carano's two mountain vineyards, RockRise and LookOut. These mountain grapes come from low-yielding, non-irrigated vines which add depth and character to the wines.
