Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon embodies our passion and commitment to making the very best wine possible. The result is classically structured Cabernets that are rich in texture, layered in flavor, complex, and long. Our Cabernets display the typical cassis and blackberry notes along with spicy oak aromas that have become synonymous with the Far Niente house style.
Our Estate Bottled Napa Valley Chardonnay comes from a blend of superb vineyards, many of which are located in Coombsville, a cool growing region nestled in the rolling hills east of Napa. We’ve been growing here for over 40 years, and the deeper, well-drained gravelly loam and volcanic ash soils enable a Chardonnay of subtle tropical fruit flavors and complex aromas. There's also an absence of malolactic fermentation which preserves the grape’s natural acidity, lending the wine vibrant fruit and brightness in youth and allowing it to age beautifully, developing a sophisticated palate profile over time.
Far Niente comes from an Italian phrase that romantically translated means “without a care.” The name has been carved in stone on the front of our building since 1885. Far Niente is known as the pinnacle of timeless winemaking and luxury. Far Niente’s decades-long history as a premiere Napa Valley winery allows you to transport yourself to those days you can truly relax and savor every sip.
We are in love with what we do, and it is why our winery is like it is and why no one leaves Far Niente unimpressed, uninspired, or unmoved by all that our winery and our wines are. We are refined and sophisticated with a consistent house style; every Far Niente wine offers the highest expression of its vineyards and vintage, from our iconic Napa Valley Chardonnay to our legendary Cabernet Sauvignon.Read Our Story
