Live in the Vineyard at Far Niente: Plain White T's

04.10.13

Saturday was one for the record books. We’ve partnered with Live in the Vineyard for several years and were delighted to continue our connection with the organization this past weekend when we hosted them for a reception and special performance in the Carriage House. A somewhat drizzly morning cleared to blue skies just in time for a reception at the Cabernet Grill, which featured Far Niente Cabernet and Chardonnay and EnRoute Pinot Noir from our sister winery in Russian River Valley. Bites from the kitchen satiated hungry guests (pizzas hot from the pizza oven were extremely popular) before a concert in the Carriage House. We’ve had the privilege of hosting many talented musicians and performers over the years, and Saturday’s guest artists were no different. Plain White T’s charmed the audience with their friendliness and skill, playing well-known favorites “1, 2, 3, 4” and “Hey There Delilah” and premiering songs off their new EP. (If the song “Should’ve Gone to Bed” doesn’t make you want to move, we don’t know what will.) The band stayed long after their performance to greet guests and take photos, capping off a memorable afternoon. Here are a few photos from the day, plus a couple that capture a surprise gift Larry Maguire received from Live in the Vineyard on Monday: glasses of far niente chardonnay EnRoute Pinot Noir Reception at Far Niente harlie, Dirk, Larry and Karen FROM FAR NIENTE

Our Favorite Cabernet Day Highlights

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.
