“Great tasting and tour”
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!”
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!
