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.

A Great Start to the 2013 Vintage

Categories: Far Niente Cabernet, Far Niente Chardonnay

A new season is upon us! The vines are emerging from their dormancy and starting to grow the young shoots that will eventually hold all of those clusters we will harvest in September. At this point in the year, a Viticulturist’s heart is filled with hope and excitement because Mother Nature has been kind so far. Bud break, the stage in grapevine development when the young shoots emerge from the dormant buds, is well under way in our Napa Chardonnay vineyards and just beginning in our Napa Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard. 

Here's to the 2013 growing season!
