Beautiful winery with spectacular views of the amazing gardens! We booked an appointment and took the tour and tasting. The facilities are beautiful and the wines were delightful. The host/guide was knowledgeable and informative but was a little stiff in the presentation and sounded a bit like a tape recorder. Make sure to book your tour and tasting beforehand for this must-see winery.

The grounds are beautiful! Although I wish we walked more of the grounds, the tour was fun and informative. You learn a lot about the history of the company, which I find interesting. The wine tasting was paired with delicious cheeses. Our tour guide, Brittany, was very nice and didn't show any hint of snobbery that past reviews have hinted at experiencing at this vineyard. The wines were very good, as usual.

A quintessential winery tour. Awesome view, good wines, good tour guide, and not completely full of themselves. Car collection was a nice twist too. Maybe a little too expensive for the tour though considering most in Sonoma are free.

We had an amazing experience from beginning to end. Donna was the first person to greet us. She helped us make the reservations and was extremely warm upon our arrival. Vincent was our tour guide. Charming. Knowledgable. A great guide and a perfect experience for my first visit to Napa.

Wonderful tour, beautiful grounds, cars were fun, the upper level tasting room was beautiful! Wine and cheese paring was devine.

Far Niente is like Mondavi in that you go there for the tour and they give you a marketing-y spiel about the place, then have you taste their wine. Your perception is distorted after seeing their caves and antique cars. If you're not 100% objective about the wine, you'll get sucked in by the sophistry. Don't me wrong, the tour is a lot of fun. Our guide was funny and we had a good time laughing at all his charming jokes. The antique cars were pretty cool, even to someone like me who doesn't really know that much about cars. And you really can't beat the manicured grounds. You can spend an hour there taking pictures of the 10,000 or however many tulips that just bloomed. The wine is fairly mediocre and fairly expensive. The whites are not aged long enough and the reds lack character and strength. It's not something you should spend your money on since when you drink that wine, you won't have a charming tour guide to talk you into the wine or beautiful flours and cool cars to elevate your mood. The tour and tasting come out to a pricey $50. For that kind of money, I'd rather go to Phelps or spend it at Redd on a delicious meal. PS: When I made the reservation, they seemed very adamant about using directions on the website, instead of Google Maps. But it's not really that hard to fine, and Google Maps got it right. I thought this was kind of excessive. PPS: I had to change the date of the reservation, but apparently that didn't go through so when we showed up, the lady seemed very suspicious that I had made a reservation. She wasn't very nice about it and that totally rubbed me the wrong way. In the end, she "let" us join the 3pm tour. For 50 bucks, I expected to be treated with more respect. At least give me the benefit of doubt that I didn't just jump over the iron gate and march up to demand a tour. Sheesh...

My partner and I visited this winery on July 17, 2013. The view was spectacular and the grounds were absolutely beautiful. We were welcomed professionally and our tour guide was well informed about all aspects of the winery. We tasted two Chardonnays and two Cabernets plus their desert wine. It was, however, expensive for the splash in each glass and the 3 bites of cheese.
