Far Niente and artist Thomas Arvid proudly present “The Collection” Connoisseur’s Case. The custom-made, handfinished,
cherry wood “briefcase,” with branded images of the Far Niente estate, envelops a signed and numbered,
Limited-Edition Giclée of Arvid’s latest painting, “The Collection.” This visual masterpiece showcases Arvid’s ability to
capture the beauty of the wine experience. With just the essentials of the tasting room, Arvid’s mastery of reflection takes
us beyond the surface in a maze of shadows and glass. The contrast of wood and metal imparts a transparent quality
to the table, creating an unparalleled depth of composition. Like the elegant labels of Far Niente, “The Collection”
reminds us that the real beauty is hidden just beyond the surface. The giclée is accompanied by a six-bottle vertical of
extremely limited Far Niente Cave Collection Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, Oakville, from the incredible 2003,
2004 and 2005 vintages. Only 500 cases were produced.
Thomas Arvid possesses an unerring ability to refine a moment. In doing so, he captures our wonder and has become
an art world phenomenon. Named one of the top “25 Artists You Should Know” by US Art magazine, Arvid receives
critical acclaim for his ability to portray centuries-old traditions in a startlingly fresh style. Art Business News credits him
with “launching a major art trend…” with his oversized still-life compositions of wine and the rituals surrounding its
consumption. Often called “photo-realistic,” Arvid astounds viewers with his mastery of light and depth reflected in
the intricate detail of his work.
Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon
Far Niente Estate Bottled Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, Oakville combines our noble vineyards in Oakville with
our passion and commitment to making the very best wine possible. The Martin Stelling Vineyard, our 100-acre estate
vineyard located behind the winery at the base of the western hills, is the cornerstone of our Cabernet blend. Vintage
after vintage, this vineyard consistently produces the highly regarded Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon.
Far Niente Cave Collection Cabernet Sauvignon is renowned for its ability to age gracefully and become more nuanced
and elegant with time. As each vintage is bottled, a small percentage is reserved for the Cave Collection, capped with a
specially designed tin capsule, and then set aside for extended age. Limited quantities of the Cave Collection are made
available annually; once the year’s offering is depleted, the wines remain unavailable until the next allocated release.
