One of California’s oldest wineries, Far Niente was founded in 1885 by world traveler and entrepreneur, John Benson. The winery flourished until Prohibition, at which time it was abandoned and fell into complete disrepair. The stately stone shell of a winery was purchased in 1979 by Gil Nickel, as part of his quest to create a world class wine estate in the Napa Valley. During restoration, the original name, Far Niente, romantically translated to “without a care,” was found carved in stone on the front of the building, where it remains to this day.
Our gorgeous Trays are handmade using genuine upcycled wooden wine crates from renowned wineries around the world. Each piece is unique and features the original markings of the wine crate. We utilize a furniture satin finish to bring years of function and beauty to your living space.
