Spring is in full swing here at Far Niente and, folks, it is absolutely glorious! Thousands of azaleas are soaking up their moments in the sunshine—bright, rich pastels painting the understory canvas in our woodland gardens. There to back them up with an abundance of color and scale are a collection of rhododendrons towering throughout the landscape like dense clusters of butterflies awaiting the spring metamorphosis.
Not to be left out of the dance are the many mature flowering trees: pink and white dogwoods, Chinese perfume (fringe) trees and tulip trees, with deep purple-pinks and whites. Maples awash in deep crimsons, burgundies, blood red and velvety greens make their presence known. Even the mighty, live oaks along with the valley oaks get into the act with their long tendrils of flowers welcoming the rush of spring.
All in all, we are enjoying a feast for the senses here at our winery estate gardens—the perfect backdrop for savoring our Napa Cabernet and Chardonnay.
