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.

We’re touring the new Far Niente website in a five-part series.

Have you ever wondered how Far Niente got its name or who designed and built the stately stone winery? What is Far Niente’s connection to Winslow Homer? Our estate page tells these stories and more, including information about our 13-acre gardens, car collection and sustainable practices. Take a look!
