Far Niente and Nickel & Nickel Wine Dinner

Far Niente and Nickel & Nickel Wine Dinner

Bistro Napa welcomes Far Niente and Nickel & Nickel

Thursday, April 28 • 2016 | 6 pm

Join us in Bistro Napa for an evening of fine dining featuring the wines of sister wineries Far Niente and Nickel & Nickel. Founded in the late 1800’s by John Benson and lovingly restored in the 1970’s by Gil Nickels, Far Niente established a reputation as a top producer of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. The Far Niente partners went on to create Nickel & Nickel in the late 1990’s, a winery on a historic property in Oakville that is dedicated to producing 100 percent varietal bottlings from single sites to showcase the personalities of the individual vineyards.
