Don't write a ton of reviews, but I felt compelled after such a great experience today. My wife and I visited Far Niente based on recommendations and stellar reviews online. Well, I can definitely say that our experience was worth every penny! Kyle was terrific during our tour and tasting, and if he had not told us it was his... More

Visiting Far Niente Winery is like stepping into a story book. We came for the wine (especially the Chardonnay - our favorite), but we were also enthralled with the majestic beauty of the gardens. The tour was lovely - step outside thru the garden, into the caves, past the barrels and tanks, past the library (with every wine they've ever... More

What a wonderful experience we had here. We booked a private tasting for 4 p.m. and when we got there the desk said our appointment was actually for 1 p.m. I don't know if we didn't have our glasses on when we made the appointment or their web page messed up, however they made it alright for us. You can... More

Book your reservation well ahead for the special opportunity to enjoy this historic and beautiful winery / setting. Far Niente wines are well recognized as some of the finest that come from the Napa Valley. We were not disappointed with the 2 chardonnay and 2 cabernet tasting selections and the Dolce to complete the experience. The 3 "small bites" included... More

Far Niente estate, located at 1350 Acacia Drive, Oakville, CA, is the most beautiful winery that we toured in the Napa Valley. Endless fields of grape vines perfectly border meticulously manicured lawns and gardens from which a hill emerges. The hill is the foundation for the ornately decorated buildings and offers a nice view of the fountain. At the top... More

During several past visits to wine country I have tried to get reservations at Far Niente without success. That changed this trip! We had an informative and interesting tour with a wonderful guide. After the tour of the operation and grounds, we sat down to an excellent wine tasting of some of their terrific wines. The wines were accompanied by... More

No trip to the Napa/ Saint Helena area is complete without visiting Far Niente! You must book in advance of your trip as each tour is limited to 6-8 guests at a time. As you pass through the entrance gates, the lake and landscape will take your breath away. You enter the winery through a beautiful home and are taken... More
