    Amazing winery tour and tasting
    Our private cave tour and library tasting at Far Ninety winery was a delightful tutorial and yummy experience. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, having been "in the business" for decades. The miles-long cave that was dug into the hillside was impressive--and chilly. The library tasting included their range of varietals paired with little "bites." The wines and food were delicious. Both couples bought some so our tour fee was either all or partly absorbed into the wine purchases. This is an expensive experience, but well worth it for wine aficionados.

    Beautiful setting for wine tasting outdoors
    We had a fantastic outdoor tasing at Far Niente with our host Howard. The winery is beautiful with many seating areas to relax and enjoy a tasting experience. It goes without saying, but the wines are delicious. Howard catered the tasting to our specific likes/dislikes to ensure we had the best experience possible. A pricey tasting but well worth it in quality and service.

    Excellent visit to Far Niente!
    We enjoyed touring and tasting at Far Ninety immensely! From the warm welcome we received from Cynthia while checking in to the wonderful tour led by Stephany, everything was just perfect! We joined the wine club we liked it so much!

    Beautiful historic setting and unique experience
    Overall this was our favorite tour in Napa and I would highly recommend it. The grounds are beautiful and unique - plan to spend some time just walking around the ponds or exploring the garage of exotic cars. I’ve considered Far Niente wines very high quality but didn’t know much about them or the owners. It was really a great experience to learn about them, the history of the property, and to explore the caves of the winery. This is really an impressive and immersive experience! Not only do you get to see the winemaking process, you experience first hand the labyrinth of the underground cellar and the owner’s private wine vault. Following the tour we not only tasted a number of wines from the current lineup, but were treated to additional tastings from other labels owned by Far Niente. With our booking we were also fortunate enough to be offered a weekday complimentary tasting at Nickel & Nickel, which we loved also! I highly recommend booking this one and then following on with N&N. Many thanks to Stephany for being our tour and tasting guide!!

A lovely experience at Far Niente. An interesting tour, plenty of information was provided, and more than the scheduled four samplings of wine were given.

We have visited numerous wineries in the US. And europe. We even own a small vineyard/winery. This property is the most elegant and beautiful we have ever visited.

We did a wine tour and it was amazing. We are members so it was complimentary. The best Chardonnay in the region. Very interesting tour. If you have the means to join the wine club, do it before you visit and sign up for a free tour at both Far Niente and Nickle and Nickle.

One of my faves when I went to Napa. Reserved a tasting and tour in advance and it was so worth it! Had our own room for the tasting and the tour was really cool. You get to go underground in the caves. Really fun! They also have a classic car collection that you can see through the garage door (super dope) but they no longer let people in because of course one person ruined it for everyone and spilled wine on one of them. Our tour guide was very informative AND funny which was a plus! It’s a beautiful property as well. Spend some time by the pool/bar as well as the lake. It’s beautiful! The wine was amazing! My fave was the merlot we tried and I normally don’t like Merlot. They paired them all with a specific wine and cheese which were all good and got to see what the wine tasted like before and after the pairing. They also give military a discount (half off) which is an amazing deal for what you receive. I would definitely go here again!

The visual appeal and old-world atmosphere of the main building, followed by a complex cave system made this tour memorable and unique. Our wine educator, Jess, was patient and eager to educate the neophyte and the connoisseur alike. The quality of the vintages were high-quality and we chose to take a couple bottles home. Thank you for a beautiful tour and a memorable experience.

We booked the high end tasting that included food pairings ($250 per person) and noted in advance one in our party was pescatarian. While three of us enjoyed a fabulous duck parfait with our red wines, she was given the cracker our duck came on (and a store bought cracker at that). I can think of dozens of non meat items that would have been suitable for a red wine pairing (a mole' or unsweetened chocolate parfait, a marinara paste or flan or a " vegemite" style spread)…to pay that much per person and to have your guest given a cracker was most disappointing.

Far Niente…put more effort into next time!
