Winery Walks: Ferrari-Carano

For short flat walks, wineries can provide beautiful gardens, vistas and charming if sometime kitschy architecture for your viewing pleasure.

With over 300 wineries in Sonoma County, we won’t cover all of them – but we will display some of our favorite gardens. Some are walks on their own and some are near places we like to walk.

Ferrari-Carano Garden

Ferrari-Carano in Dry Creek Valley near the Warm Springs Dam provides two kinds of gardens.

Path to Ferrari-Carano Winery

A formal entrance to the tasting room features a tidy lawn and flower-lined walkway and a huge sculpture of a boar. It honors the one who dug up the garden on the owners’ first planting attempt. Other sculptures honor the owner’s hard work to build this garden.

Protected behind a gate is a lush garden of trees, bushes, flowers, ponds, streams and gazebos. This completely created refuge manages to alternately awe and soothe me.

If this walk is not enough try taking a walk at Lake Sonoma for a stroll through the fish hatchery or a more strenuous hike down to the lake.
