A graduate of the Viticulture and Enology program at The University of California at Davis, Nicole Marchesi honed her skills in Sonoma and New Zealand before coming to Far Niente as an enologist in 2005. She was soon promoted to assistant winemaker, and 4 years later became the fourth winemaker in Far Niente's 30-year history. During her tenure, Marchesi has gained a deep understanding of our estate vineyards, working with the sites and individual blocks to bring forth the discrete character of each. Ultimately, Marchesi strives to create wines of elegance and depth that capture both place and vintage, while staying true to the Far Niente house style.
