Villa Fiore Wine Tasting Room and Wine Shop
Best Tasting Room, Press Democrat: Readers Choice Award 2012
Villa Fiore, Ferrari-Carano’s magnificent hospitality wine center, is the perfect setting to taste our acclaimed wines. Upon entering, guests immediately feel the warm Italian ambiance of this elegant place.
Visitors may taste Ferrari-Carano's Classic Wines and Villa Fiore wines (sold only at the winery) at the wine tasting bar, where new wines such as the Pinot Grigio, and favorites such as the Fume Blanc, Sonoma County Chardonnay, Siena, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon are available.
Or, choose to peruse the Villa Fiore Wine Shop for that perfect wine country gift or souvenir.
You will be transported to the Italian countryside as you sip wine and enjoy the beautiful surroundings at the dramatic, curved mahogany and black granite wine tasting bar with its backdrop of large, arched windows that overlook the estate vineyard, the surrounding mountains and the stunning villa fountain pavilion.
Across the room is the temperature-controlled, vaulted Library Wine Cellar which showcases Ferrari-Carano's past vintages and large format bottle wines. This impressive room features a beautiful, hand-painted Renaissance mural depicting Ferrari-Carano's LookOut Mountain Ranch.
A curving stone staircase descends to our stunning underground double-vaulted wine cellar with Austrian cobblestone floor, and Enoteca Lounge where visitors may enjoy a short video about the winery, view framed menus from The White House featuring Ferrari-Carano's wines, or elect to taste some of our Limited Release and Reserve Wines in the Enoteca Lounge. Visitors may taste four wines in the Enoteca for $15, which is refunded with an $80 wine purchase.
Open daily from 10am to 5pm, the Villa Fiore Wine Shop offers a diverse selection of unusual tableware, linens, wine accessories, logo clothing and unique wine country gift items – and of course, Ferrari-Carano wines! Visitors may taste four wines for $5.
