Far Niente/ Nickel & Nickel Wine Dinner (DILWORTH)

American Wine Dinner with Nickel & Nickel and Far Niente

The 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. Far Niente prospered until the onset of Prohibition in 1919, whereupon it fell into disrepair. Sixty years later, in 1979, Gil Nickel purchased the winery and adjacent vineyard and began a three-year restoration process which resulted in its placement on the National Register of Historic Places. In 1982, winemaking returned to Far Niente with the first crush of Cabernet Sauvignon. Today, Far Niente remains focused on Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay so that it can continue to concentrate its efforts on creating two varietal wines of astonishing quality.

Nickel & Nickel is dedicated exclusively to producing 100% varietal, single-vineyard wines, each as a unique expression of the characteristics of a particular vineyard.
