At Far Niente, we are as passionate about the planet as we are our wines. Our commitment to sustainability is woven throughout our tapestry of soils, vines and grapes. Far Niente went solar in 2008, with our ground-breaking Floatovoltaic™ system — the world’s first floating, grid-connected solar installation. Along with our sister winery, Nickel & Nickel, we are solar powered, net-zero users of electricity who annually produce more energy than we consume.
From grape to glass, we ensure the utmost respect for our environment by minimizing our environmental impact and maximizing our roles as stewards of the land. For us, it’s just second nature.
We honor every season and every soil across our Napa Valley vineyards. From our production techniques to our daily business practices, we maintain our commitment to ethical winemaking. We feel an obligation to do our part through effective, sustainable measures.
Our storied history has created incredible moments, relationships, and even recipes.
Seven wine experts from around the country have shared some of their holiday favorites for Veranda Magazine—and what to pair them with—to help you check one thing off your holiday to-do list this year.
Intense, with tarry grip throughout supporting wll-packed cassis, plum reduction and açaí berry paste flavors. There’s a buried graphite spine on the finish, with flashes of licorice snap and violet. Built for the cellar. Best from 2023 through 2040. - J.M.
"This features a nice dark core of cassis and creamed plum notes laced with violet, graphite and juniper hints. The finish flows wonderfully, with the graphite edge extending as long as the fruit for lovely balance. best from 2022 through 2034." - J.M.
"This is a savory, textured wine from a ranch off the Silverado Trail in the heart of the appellation. It sings in cedar, dried herb and sage, with an inviting, earthy nose. The grippy palate develops to show smooth integration of tannin and oak, with a lasting note of tobacco leaf on the finish." —V.B.
