Ferrari-Carano has always been a leading producer of world-class, nationally acclaimed wines. Vintage after vintage, the wines exhibit a remarkable consistency of style and elegance. Don and Rhonda Carano, CEO of Ferrari-Carano and a 2019 SOBEWFF® Tribute Dinner Honoree, founded Ferrari-Carano in 1981. Don and Rhonda Carano’s uncompromising commitment to quality and excellence is a reflection of their desire to produce memorable wines that enhance the pleasures of gracious entertaining.
In 1973, Don established the Eldorado Hotel and Casino in Downtown Reno, and together with Rhonda, developed the Eldorado Hotel into the area’s premier location for fine dining, great wine lists and impeccable service. In 1979, they were introduced to the beauty of Northern Sonoma County, and eventually purchased a 60-acre parcel in the Alexander Valley. The wine they made in their barn was bottled under the “Carano Cellars” label, 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 - a 1986 Fumé Blanc and a 1985 Alexander Valley Chardonnay - were released in 1987. Today, Ferrari-Carano produces those wines as well as over 20 other white, red and dessert wines and their 24 vineyards have the earned California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance (CSWA) certification.
