Not cheesy or stuffy, very friendly. 40,000 square feet of cave. The husband, God rest his soul, fell in love with Chardonnay. You need to go to hear the beautiful story. Some labels environmentally friendly n put chestnut at the end of the barrel which is painted with the Cabernet for esthetics. Who does this? Again, detail Bottom line, if... More

Of the many wineries we have visited, this is by far the most beautiful in regards to the grounds. This particular property requires advance reservations well in advance. The 1 1/2 tour and tasting is 65.00 per person. Their wines are rather expensive...with the reds being around 100.00 or more a bottle and the Chardonnay 60.00+. I was a little... More

We tried to make reservation prior to going to Napa, but was not able to. The Winery told us to call them once we get there to see if there is any cancellation. And we were very lucky to get a reservation to visit the winery. The wine is delicious, the place is beautiful and peaceful. The cave where the... More

This is my happy place. The wine is amazing and the staff is very polite and engaging. I am a member and have been on the tour 4-5 times now. It was the same, nice tour every time. Rory changed the route and included more interesting stories and her personal touch, which made it very enjoyable. I love the wines... More

What a wonderful time we had at Far Niente! The winery originated in 1885 and restored for a period of 3 years in the 1970's to perfection! Our tour brought us into the caves where all the wine is stored. It was such a wonderful experience to go into them. Katherine was super informative. Any time I was about to... More

Winery tour was beautiful, though tour guide (Vincent) made a point of not letting us into see the car collection -- everyone else I've spoken to was allowed into the showroom! And for all the $ to take the tour, didn't appreciate Vincent's hard sell to join the wine club throughout the tasting! Enjoyed most of the tour; would've preferred... More

Wow! The grounds are almost a fairy land with all the landscaping and flowers. Would have loved to have just sat outside with one of their fine bottles of wine! We go to Napa every other year. And we have a boutique vineyard in Texas. Far Niente ranks in the top 2-3 of all the properties we have ever visited... More

Just took my family of seven on a tour and tasting. It could not have been better. The grounds were spectacular. They greeted us like royalty, as if no else mattered. Our tour guide was gracious, knowledgeable, patient, kind, and so very informative. The wine club with 4 tastings is worth every penny, and I'm so excited to have their... More

This is yet another of those stops that you should put on your list, for the presence of the winery itself. Picturesque, and a park like setting is only part of it, the tour will take you inside one of the areas most notable wines. The tour is special, the wine, of course, is even more special. Again, these aren't... More
