Far Niente, from an Italian phrase that romantically translated means “without a care”.
Far Niente was founded in 1885. It functioned as a gravity flow winery, gently moving the grapes through each stage of production.
1982 marked the harvest of the winery’s first Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay was also produced at the winery for the first time that year. Today, the winery continues to focus on producing only the two varietal wines.
Far Niente follow an integrated program of sustainable measures affecting vineyard, winery and day-to-day business practices.
The winery strives to be ecologically friendly in all aspects of operations.
