DIVERSE SOILS AND CLIMATE
Home to our Mountain Winery, Alexander Valley is one of the largest appellations in Sonoma County, with a diversity of soil and climate unequaled in any other region.
More than half of Ferrari-Carano`s mountain, bench land and valley floor vineyards are located here. Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot grapes are planted on the valley floor and bench lands, while Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Malbec, Sangiovese, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc are planted in the mountains.
Fog drifts in over the tops of the coastal mountain range, burning off quickly in the morning sunshine, resulting in a warm climate with almost full sun throughout the day – ideal conditions for the vineyards. Each vineyard`s “terroir” contributes its own complexity of flavors and tannins in the grapes.
