A long story here at Far Niente...
Established in 1885, after Prohibition in 1919 the estate was abandoned.
Gil and Beth Nickel purchased the winery sixty years later. Today it is a Historical Registered site and 100% solar powered.
Five labels under Far Niente winery; Nickel &Nickel, Far Niente, Dolce, Enroute and Bella Union.
