Delightful aromas of white peach, orange blossom, pear, quince, Meyer lemon and mango complemented by peach, grapefruit, pear and lemon flavors. This wine has bright acidity and crisp freshness.

Don and Rhonda Carano were introduced to the beauty of Northern Sonoma County in 1979 while searching for wines to enhance the wine lists at their hotel, Eldorado. They eventually purchased a 60-acre parcel in the Alexander Valley. The vineyards that were a part of that property piqued their curiosity about winemaking. As a result, they began taking classes about enology and viticulture at the University of California, Davis. The wine they made in their barn was bottled under the "Carano Cellars" label and was given to friends and family, and eventually appeared on the wine lists at the Eldorado.

Realizing the potential that this area held, the Caranos began to acquire additional vineyard land, and ground was broken for the winery in Dry Creek Valley in 1985. The first wines bearing the Ferrari-Carano label were released in 1987. Those first wines were a 1986 Fumé Blanc and a 1985 Alexander Valley Chardonnay. Today, Ferrari-Carano produces those wines as well as over 20 other white, red and dessert wines. In 2015, Ferrari-Carano's 24 vineyards earned California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance (CSWA) certification, becoming a Certified California Sustainable Vineyard for their numerous efforts to preserve the land for future generations while producing memorable, sustainable wines of outstanding quality.
