Welcome to Our Blog

When translated from an Italian phrase, ‘Far Niente’ romantically means ‘without a care’. We hope you recapture that essence as you take a behind-the-scenes peek at Far Niente and the fine Cabernet and Chardonnay we produce here in Oakville.

Without a Care: Our New Far Niente Blog!

Categores: Visit Far Niente

Welcome to our new blog! We decided to change things up a little in 2011 with a new URL and new design. We also have let long-time blogger Dirk Hampson off the hook, freeing him up to focus on the business of winemaking—but we hope to talk him into guest blogging now and then.

Why farniente.com/blog? As you probably know, dolce far niente means "the sweetness of doing nothing" in Italian, which, on this stormy, wintery day, brings to mind hammocks, a perfect sun-to-shade ratio, and glasses of Chardonnay–Far Niente, of course. The spirit of this sweetness of leisure is living "without a care," enjoying the present–even if the present comes with a wind and driving rain determined to upset the best of hairdos.  

We hope you'll join us for our weekly posts, and feel free to comment!

  1. I’ve only been a Society member for a few years, but the 08 FN Cab was the first one I noticed was aged in French, rather than American, oak. Am I mistaken

    1. Hi Ken, Thank you for your comment! We’ve actually always aged our wines in French oak. We appreciate your attention to detail and hope you can visit us soon!
