But we also feel passionately that some wines are more civilized than others.
Ours, for example.
Far Niente, as well as all the other wines in our family exude a level of sophistication, elegance and wine wisdom that few wines can approach.
Our 135-year history has imbued us with knowledge and expertise that manifests itself through the soil, the vines, the aging, and more than anything else, the finished product.
If wine is indeed the most civilized thing in the world, we’re proud to be in the vanguard of civilization.
Far Niente wines are simply extraordinary. They truly embody the perfect fusion of art and craft, culminating in luxurious and breathtaking Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
These are not wines that require a special occasion. These are wines that create one.
Dedicated exclusively to producing 100% varietal, single-vineyard wines, Nickel & Nickel demonstrates masterful craftsmanship and a deep understanding of terroir that manifests itself in truly spectacular wines.
Each is a unique expression of the characteristics of a particular vineyard.
Bella Union is a natural and glorious next step in our evolution as Cabernet winemakers. This is wine that exemplifies the fine art of blending Napa Valley Cabernet. Our flagship vineyard is located near Bella Oaks Lane in the storied Cabernet AVA of Rutherford.
The name, Bella Union, is a nod to the history of Bella Oaks Lane which was known as the Bella Union Roadway in the 1880s.
Few places on earth are more felicitous to creating outstanding Pinot Noir than the Russian River Valley. EnRoute is a textured, graceful Pinot that represents the culmination of 30 years of passion for creating superb Pinot Noirs.
Established by the team at Far Niente in 2007, EnRoute demonstrates our firm commitment to crafting extraordinary Pinots.
Dolce is the only winery in North America solely dedicated to producing a single, late harvest wine. Few wineries commit to such an undertaking, and our commitment is realized in every single sip.
Indeed, we share that dedication with the finest Sauternes created in Bordeaux.
Named for the simple yet elegant barns that dot the American landscape, Post & Beam represents true craftsmanship, tradition and purity. These wines are the consummate examples of Cabernet and Chardonnay in their purest, most noble form.
