Far Niente Four Course Wine Dinner

Hosted by Brand Ambassador, Eric Penneys

Hosted by Far Niente’s Ambassador, Eric Penneys, we will be tasting through the wines from Far Niente and their sister wineries; En Route, Nickel & Nickel and Dolce.

Executive Chef Dennis Mathews will create a seasonal fall food menu that highlights the wines power and elegance.

Tickets are $145 per person (excluding tax and gratuity)

This is a unique experience, and seating is limited. For tickets and additional information, please call 973-451-2619.

 

Far Niente Winery was established in 1885 by John Benson, a forty-niner of the California gold rush and uncle of the famous American impressionist painter, Winslow Homer.

Benson hired architect Hamden McIntyre, creator of the former Christian Brothers winery-now the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone-to design the building. Constructed against a hillside in western Oakville, Far Niente functioned as a gravity flow winery, gently moving the grapes through each stage of production.

Far Niente prospered until the onset of Prohibition in 1919, when it was abandoned and left to fall into disrepair. Sixty years later, in 1979, Gil Nickel purchased the winery and adjacent vineyard and began a three-year restoration of the property, which resulted in placement on the National Register of Historical Places.

During restoration, the original name, Far Niente, from an Italian phrase that romantically translated means “without a care,” was found carved in stone on the front of the building where it remains to this day.  

Nineteen eighty-two marked the return of winemaking to Far Niente, with the harvest of the winery’s first Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay was also produced at the winery for the first time that year; the 1979, ’80 and ’81 vintage wines were made at an offsite location.
