Spring in wine country. It’s possibly one of the best times to visit Napa Valley, and certainly, one of the most beautiful times of year in our Far Niente winery gardens and vineyards. This year, spring seems to have taken on an extra richness in color. The ginkgos that line Acacia drive are showing fresh green buds, as is our Martin Stelling Vineyard, which stretches up into the western Oakville hills beside our historic Napa Valley winery. In addition, the mustard flourishing between our vines is pure sunshine; the azaleas (did you know we have the large single azalea planting in California) are on the cusp of full bloom; and our enormous tulips have stopped our hospitality team in their tracks on more than a few occasions.
Speaking of our Far Niente hospitality pros, they are thrilled to be able to host guests for safe and welcoming outdoor wine experiences. Every private Far Niente tasting is led by one of our professional wine hosts and is exclusive to your party.
Read on for a look at our outdoor wine tasting opportunities. Then, make plans to experience our 13 acres of lush gardens, our warm Napa Valley hospitality and our unparalleled Napa Valley wines this spring or summer.
