Facility Info

We created our wine clubs as a way for you to enjoy your favorite Far Niente wines at home without so much as an ounce of effort on your part. It’s our way of sending a touch of the “Il Dolce Far Niente” — “It’s Sweet to do Nothing” — lifestyle to you. In addition to receiving specially selected wines throughout the year, our wine club members are invited to exclusive events, first to know about new and limited releases, and offered special savings on wines. Simply review the club options below, sign up for the clubs that suit your taste, and we will do the rest.

-Dolce Far Niente Society
“Dolce Far Niente,” is an Italian phrase that describes a way of enjoying life’s passions without a care. It is a phrase that embodies the spirit of the Far Niente, Dolce, Nickel & Nickel, EnRoute and Bella Union wineries.

We invite you to become a member of the Dolce Far Niente Society, a club comprised of enthusiasts of our family of wines.

-Far Niente Collectors Club
The Collectors Club was created especially for lovers of Far Niente wines who wish to receive one case of Napa Chardonnay and one case of Napa Cabernet just prior to release.

We invite you to become a member of the Far Niente Collectors Club, and become the first of our consumers to receive the new vintages in your cellars.

-Far Niente Cave Club
Designed for the true Napa Cabernet Sauvignon lover, the Far Niente Cave Club includes one case of our Far Niente Estate Bottled Cabernet and a six-bottle selection of Cave Collection Cabernet, delivered biannually.

We invite you to become a member of the Far Niente Cave Club, and enjoy the past vintages we reserve in limited quantities just for you.
