We had a wonderful experience at Far Niente. Chris walked us around the magnificent grounds, showed us the car collection after touring the caves and ending with a fabulous tasting and pairing. We left educated, satiated and truly impressed with our winery tour.

First time visit to the winery. We had a wonderful time during our visit and we enjoyed the caves during the harvest. Expansive estate, amazing wine, knowledgeable and fun staff, and the wine is perfect.

As soon as you drive up the gate and go through the long driveway you can feel the beauty of this estate. Speechless, compared to everywhere else I've been this is way way above all others. Everywhere you walk through the estate, the classic cars,...More

Yes -- an extensive car collection and a beautiful display. Features old and new cars - they try to add 1 new car to their collection every year.
