Far Niente’s focus is about making sure what’s done is done well. Since its first vintage in 1979, Far Niente has produced Chardonnay without malolactic fermentation, which means crisp, succulent fruit is the emphasis rather than butter and creamy notes. Look for fresh pineapple, figs, and peaches in this Napa Valley classic.
Far Niente’s focus is on two – and only two – wines: Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. They have never tried to be all things to all people. Instead, it’s about making sure that what’s done is done well. Utilizing only estate vineyards and adhering to a clearly defined house style, the winemaking team is able to deliver wines from one vintage to the next with obvious bloodlines. That sense of consistency and individuality is one common tie to all the great estates in winedom. Far Niente deserves to be mentioned in that elite company. Gil Nickel’s enduring legacy lives on in the glass.
