Owner Rhonda Carano extends her gracious hospitality to guests and wine lovers from around the world at her four-diamond Vintners Resort, Vi La Vita Spa, John Ash & Co. Restaurant, River Vine Restaurant, The Front Room Bar & Lounge and Ferrari-Carano Vineyards and Winery.

Rhonda Carano is second-generation Italian-American and a native of Reno, Nevada. In 1979, when Rhonda and her late husband, Don, were searching for wines to enhance the wine lists at their Eldorado Hotel Casino in Reno, they were introduced to the beauty of Sonoma County’s wine country and purchased a 60-acre ranch in the Alexander Valley. Realizing the area’s potential, the Caranos acquired additional vineyard land and founded Ferrari-Carano Vineyards and Winery in 1981, with the first wines bearing the Ferrari-Carano label released in 1986. In 2000, they acquired Vintners Resort and the adjacent John Ash & Co. restaurant.
