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.
"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."
"In the last edition of the Somm Joury, we featured the Cabernet Sauvignons of Nickel & Nickel. In this issue, we delve into another Far Niente project, EnRoute, established in 2007 to show off the beauty and perfection of Pinot Noir from the Russian River Valley. EnRoute’s single-vineyard program captures the essence of specially selected sites."
