Living in gorgeous wine country California we are fortunate to have world-class wineries so close by and today we visited the exquisite Ferrari Carano winery. The drive was beautiful; it was sunny and warm with a breeze. We past so many lush vineyards and stopped to take pictures along the way. Harvest season has started in Sonoma County but there are still full grape clusters hanging on the vines and they are a wonderful sight to see.
Ferrari Carano Winery is about 30 miles from our home and is located in Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley in Healdsburg, CA. The winery is known for their Chardonnays, Sauvignon Blancs as well as reds and desert wines. Let me just say we were in complete delight when we pulled onto the property. The winery looks just like an Italian villa with grand arches, lots of architectural and ornamental details, beautiful windows and is surrounded by stunning ornamental gardens. There are several types of tastings offered, one of which can be experienced in the underground Enoteca Reserve Tasting Bar and you can see a remarkable barrel room on your way down and then there is the II Terrazzo terrace that overlooks the stunning formal gardens and vineyard offering tastings as well.
We spent time exploring the immaculate grounds and gardens. There are over 200 species of trees, shrubs, and florals so there is color year-round. Stunning bronze sculptures, bridges, streams, waterfalls, paths and fishponds are located throughout. It was such a stunning afternoon spent with my hubby in this truly magical location.
I wore one of my favorite Pinup Girl Clothing dresses, as it is such a lovely sundress and I accessorized it simply with a colorful cardigan and my vintage 1950s pink poodle purse. I received so many compliments on my outfit and visitors stopped to take photos with me. It is always so much fun getting to meet new people and it is so sweet when they request photos with me. We will definitely be back to visit Ferrari Carano and will be bringing all of our out-of-town visitors to experience the treasure they have created along with their exquisite wines!!
