Sustainability | Far Niente Family

Sustainability From The Ground Up

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.

What Sustainability at Our Wineries Looks Like

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.

  • We are solar-powered, net-zero users of electricity
  • We annually produce more energy than we consume
  • We practice organic farming across our vineyards
  • We collect process water from winery operations for vineyard irrigation and frost protection
  • We recycle extensively across our wineries
