Happy New Year, Napa Valley 2017

Far Niente officially welcomes the New Year! After a joyous holiday season we are happy to welcome new opportunities in 2017. As season change, vines bloom and fruit ripens, we are always grateful to be one of the worlds great wine estates. This year we look forward to making many more memories and connections with you, our valued wine lovers. Three months ago we brought in our last fruit of 2016 and just around the corner we will see our vineyards begin to bloom. Our vines first harvested in 1982 have become living statues on our beautiful estate. With reliability akin to the sun coming up tomorrow, we can count on a couple of things from Far Niente in the New Year, Estate Bottled Cabernet, Estate Bottled Chardonnay and our decadent Dolce.

Across boundaries and timelines Far Niente has found a place in homes and cellars across the Country. This year we predict our Cave Collection Cabernet will be paired with Rosemary Rack of Lamb and Chanterelle-Barley Risotto with Kale-Cabbage Salad, a glass of our Estate Bottled Chardonnay will be married to a dish of Smoked Trout and Scallion Crepes “Cannelloni” and our Late Harvest Dolce will mingle with Pistachio and Coconut Pain Perdu. Wherever you find our wines this year we wish you joy happiness this New Year. Like the food and wine suggestions above? This year you can make even more memories in the kitchen with our exclusive recipes created by our Far Niente executive Chefs. Also, Dolce Far Ninete Wine Club members, we hope to see you this year at our annual Far Niente Cabernet day and other highly anticipated events.
