Far Niente

All wine club orders will ship free of charge in April.

Far Niente was established in Oakville, CA in 1885 and prospered until the onset of Prohibition in 1919, when the winery ceased operation and the estate was abandoned. Sixty years later, in 1979, the old stone shell of a winery underwent a three-year renovation, which restored the building to its original, 19th century grandeur. Dedicated to producing Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, Far Niente helped create the high-end Napa Valley wine market and has served as a benchmark wine estate in the region for more than three decades.

Far Niente’s leadership pursued new vineyards and winemaking ventures over the years, growing the portfolio into a family of unique brands. Far Niente Family of Wineries and Vineyards includes Far Niente, Nickel & Nickel, EnRoute and Bella Union.
