The Rich History of Far Niente Estate

A forty-niner during the gold rush in 1885, John Benson established Far Niente Winery. Translated from the Italian phrase for 'Not a care,' Far Niente Estate was built on a hillside in Oakville, on the western side. "Far Niente" was actually carved into a stone on the front of the building. Built to work as a gravity flow winery by transporting the grapes through every segment of production, Far Niente was successful until prohibition in 1919, when it was abandoned fell into disrepair. In 1979, sixty years later, Gil Nickel purchased the winery and its vineyard and began restoring the property and wine production. While working on the estate, he found the stone carving of "Far Niente", and his winery had a name.
