Yes, they have other varietals but this is what put them on the map. Unlike their sister winery, Nickel & Nickel, Far Niente does blend their ones from more than one source and I prefer the result. Amazing wines but at a very high premium....More

Having long been a fan of Far Niente's wines, we finally visited the winery itself. It was an exceptional experience. The winery buildings and grounds are spectacular - historical and beautiful and right in the heart of the valley, just north of Yountville. Our guide,...More
