A new article in the Napa Valley Register features Far Niente's newest brand, Post and Beam:
"When Far Niente says they are coming out with a new brand, an electric charge of excitement seems to hang in the air. What are they creating? What will the style of the wines be like? The newest addition to the Far Niente company of wineries and vineyards is Post & Beam, a name that pays tribute to the vintage barns that dot our rural countryside.
With such a hearty name, one may jump to conclusions; perhaps the wines themselves are big and rustic. What you find in the glass with a Post & Beam wine, however, might then surprise you.
Far Niente’s director of winemaking, Andrew Delos, and winemaker Michael Accurso, joined a group of media earlier this month for a virtual tasting of the wines, sharing stories of the brand’s creation and the wines’ style goals. What separates the wines of Post & Beam Winery from its sibling, Far Niente, explained Delos and Accurso, is that the Post & Beam style focuses on the purity of fruit and fresh intensity; a tribute to varietal expression and brightness.
Far Niente wines have always been about cellaring and letting the wines’ layers of flavors develop in the bottle so that upon opening, a harmonious symphony of deep fruits, oak-spiced complexity and maturing flavors greet the happy owner."
