Oakville is home to our winery as well as the surrounding 57-acre Martin Stelling Vineyard, the cornerstone of Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon since our first release in 1982. Planted on some of the most beautiful, gravelly loam soil in the Napa Valley, the Stelling Vineyard grows wines of considerable depth, with layers of dark forward fruit and supple, elegant tannins. Approachable upon release, time serves to enhance the flavors and nurture the bottle bouquet of our Cabernet, earning Far Niente the reputation for creating age-worthy wines. This 2015 vintage is an outstanding expression of our estate vineyard that brilliantly showcases the Far Niente house style.
