Vintner's Luncheon at Far Niente

The words were found carved in a stone that was part of the original circa 1885 building—“Far niente,” or “without a care.” While that’s how guests may feel when wandering the grounds of this astounding Napa estate, for its proprietors nothing could be further from the truth. Great care has gone into this historical property—from its original nineteenth century roots, to its restoration in the 1970s, to the rise of its legendary Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. To experience Far Niente is to experience some of the region’s most precious history.

Dining alfresco surrounded by beautifully cultivated gardens and sprawling vineyards, guests at today’s luncheon will experience the timeless magic of this extraordinary estate.
