This is absolutely stunning and relaxing. Great service and the staff is so wonderful. We were here for a board meeting excursion. Our group loved it. You have to visit!

“Unique Winery!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

The wine tour is one of a kind; shouldn't be missed! Tour includes viewing of caves, classic cars as well as wine tasting.

“Great tasting and tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012 via mobile

Pricey wine but unpretentious. Zack was out host and he was very welcoming. The grounds are beautiful and the caves are interesting. Got a bottle of cab to take home and an empty bottle of the dolce which I will use to store olive oil. Had a great time and would highly recommend though I hear from others on our tasting that on the last visit their host was terrible. Ask for Zack

“Zack gives the best tour in Napa!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

This was our second tour a Far Niente and we had Zack both times. He is informative, clear, and funny. Many people see Far Niente as an elite wine and they expect a snooty environment. Service is impeccable and personal, but the people who work there are down to earth. They don't claim their wine is best, they understand it's about style and personal preference. But of course, their wines are amazing. The tour includes a cheese pairing with delicious cheeses that compliment their wines. I would highly recommend this experience and ask for Zack!

“Fancy, very well prepared and educational!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

I took the tour with my wife and we believe it is a pretty fancy place, well planned and prepared to introduce you into Far Niente world, which we loved. They take you into the Cellars, wine Library and even into the automotive collection (one of the best I have ever seen). Love the experience and recommended as a must if you go to Napa!
