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.

Categories: Far Niente Cabernet, Wine Gifts

Finding the right gift for the man who taught you how to balance a bike, balance a checkbook, cook, work hard, play fair and live well can be hard. We’ve hand-picked a selection of Father’s Day wines and wine gifts that are luxurious, delicious and timeless enough to transcend trends.

Discover our complete Father’s Day Gift Guide here. Or check-out some hand-picked favorites below. There’s not a wrong wine gift in the lineup, so you can’t make a bad choice.


For the Collector:
The notes of deep, chocolate-covered cherry aroma and velvety, mouthfilling tannins of the  2015 Far Niente Estate Bottled Cabernet Sauvignon make this elegant, textured wine from our Oakville estate one of our most cellar-worthy vintages to date!

For the Grill Master:
With its rich, dark plum, cherry and herb flavors  and expansive finish, the 2014 Nickel & Nickel Quarry Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon  promises to delight Napa Valley wine lovers with its power and finesse. It’s also handsomely packaged in a branded wood box.

For the Mountain Wine Lover:
The three-bottle  Nickel & Nickel Hillside Trio captures the intensity and power of our favorite high-elevation Single-Vineyard Cabernets. It’s a one-of-a-kind gift available exclusively from us.

For the Russian River Pinot Aficionado and Big Bottle Lover:
Make a big impression with a luxurious 1.5-Liter format of EnRoute’s flagship Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, “Les Pommiers.” The 2015 vintage manages to be both lush and lithe, with lovely blackberry and Bing cherry aromas, subtle notes of sage and forest floor, deep color and a silky-juicy finish.


Hosting the whole family this Father’s Day?
From now until June 10, when you order three or more bottles of our Bella Union Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, you’ll receive a hand-stamped, solid-maple Far Niente cheese board.
It’s a handsome, limited-production gift, perfect for the food-and-wine-loving dad. Or for treating yourself!
