15June- Far Niente goes solar. article from S.F.Chronicle

Winery goes solar with 'floatovoltaics'

This is great. I wish I could afford to buy Far Niente to support them in this endeavor.

More's the pity,* I believe I was party to an unappreciated bottle of Far Niente four something years ago. During the wooing process, Leigh and I came across a bottle of Far Niente Cabernet that had mysteriously appeared in her wine cabinet. Nearest we can figure, it came from a client of hers. Neither of us recognized the name and we decided to pop it open. In and of itself not a bad idea but we'd already knocked back a couple of bottles and were in no position to enjoy this third one.
There should be a BAC starter engine equivalent for nice bottles of wine.
