The experience with the staff was phenomenal. They’re ere friendly, professional, and kind. The wine was great. What you would expect for a solid Napa lineup. Unfortunate, the experience we wanted was left very lackluster and ruined by a VERY drunk tour attendee. The staff did their best to be accommodating, but she should not have been allowed to participate.

However, we are very well taken care of by a very pleasant young lady, Elizabeth, who hosted us with the great wines paired with the various types cheese. She was outstanding! Our best to her.

The wine educators have elevated this Far Niente Experience to the stratospheric heights. We were lucky to have a scholarly wine educator Mr Vincent Spanier This made it a great tour.

We thought the winery was very elegant, beautiful setting and history. We had a private tasting outside the experience was really really nice. We got some amazing history from the person that conducted the tasting. We did purchase wine but felt very slightly that the tasting ended sort of abruptly when we weren't purchasing a larger quantity of wine. The tasting was pretty much done so it was ok.
