Were you at Far Niente Cabernet Release Day? Candlelit caves and beautiful vintages around almost every corner. . . Cheese, charcuterie and delicious bites flowing from the kitchen. . . It was a day to remember, for sure. But if you weren’t able to join us, don’t despair—we’ve saved some of our newly released Cabernet just for you.
A bounty of cheeses and charcuterie awaited guests beneath the chandelier in the Round Room.
Guests started off with a pour of the 2010 Far Niente Chardonnay and then entered the caves to find 1999, 2005 and 2007 Cave Collection Cabernets. The new release was the centerpiece, of course, poured in the striking, chandelier-lit Round Room. Winemaker Nicole Marchesi also provided a preview of next year’s vintage with barrel samples of the 2010 Cabernet.
2007 Dolce and an array of sweets in the Chardonnay Cellar were too tempting to pass up.
The soon-to-be released 2007 Dolce poured by Winemaker Greg Allen topped off the experience before guests had the opportunity to meet Proprietress Beth Nickel and President & CEO Larry Maguire—who also signed bottles.
This was an extra special day for our wine club members who are the first to know about this—and all of our events—every year. Glorious weather, an incredible venue (if we do say so ourselves) and a great group of friends, new and old—we couldn’t have asked for more.

Buying Futures refers to purchasing wine that is still maturing in barrel. In France, this more than 200-year old practice is known as en primeur, which literally translates to, as being new.LEARN MORE
Last Saturday, wine club members gathered to celebrate some of our most-loved Far Niente Cabernets during our annual Cabernet Day celebration. We pulled the corks on some very special Cave Collection vintages (including a 36-years-young 1983 Far Niente Cabernet!) alongside the star of the event, the stunning 2016 Far Niente Estate Bottled Cabernet Sauvignon.LEARN MORE
