Far Niente Winery
One of California's oldest wineries, Far Niente was founded in 1885 by world traveler and entrepreneur, John Benson. The winery flourished until Prohibition, at which time it was abandoned and fell into complete disrepair. The stately stone shell of a winery was purchased in 1979 by Gil Nickel, as part of his quest to create a world class wine estate in the Napa Valley.
Far Niente Cabernet.During restoration, the original name, Far Niente, romantically translated to "without a care", was found carved in stone on the front of the building, where it remains to this day.
