Dolce embraces a deceptively simple philosophy: the pursuit of perfection in the art of late harvest winemaking. Created in 1985 by the partners of Far Niente, its existence is the result of overcoming remarkable adversity and developing expertise that no one else in the U.S. has. Dolce stands as the pinnacle, where Mother Nature and craftsmanship combine to define luxury through a wine capable of flirting with your emotions like no other.
With a classic blend of late harvest Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, Dolce is dedicated to producing the perfect late harvest wine. Dolce has brought forth a wine in every vintage, yet in small, unpredictable quantities; witness to the incredible difficulties presented every year in the effort to make Dolce.
Dolce is an extraordinary wine bred from a combination of sunshine, soil, fog, expertise and dedication; a wondrous luxury, limited by nature to always being a gift of rarity. Dolce calls to mind key lime pie with its citrusy aromas, floral and creamy textures, and baking spice finish.
The Dolce cellar is located within the caves of its sister winery, Far Niente, in California’s Napa Valley. Visitors to the winery are welcomed with a hosted tour, followed by a tasting of current and library vintages.
A wine so sweet as Dolce’s late harvest need only be accompanied by good times, but it can be enjoyed with a delightfully wide array of flavor profiles, making it a wonderful complement for your next special dinner or social gathering. Inspired by culinary experts and professional chefs, here are a few ideas to get you started.
