“Wine making and film making are two great art forms” thus sayeth Francis Ford Coppola the great director of Godfather. Think Inglenook Chablis which is a popular wine in the United States especially in restaurants, rating among the top five selling wines. The great director has acquired a brand name equal to the Godfather in Inglenook.
FFC bought his first vineyard in 1975 from his Godfather earnings. It took him 36 more years before he could buy the entire estate including the prestigious brand name on April 11, 2011.
FFC is the proud owner of another wine related property and this is Francis Ford Coppola Winery in 300Via Archimedes, Geyserville, California, 95441 . This is for the young couple with kids looking for a great holiday. Perfect pool, restaurant and stay and of course the wine. You can host a private event here. You can attend a mind blowing wine blending seminar here. Live singers and performances on weekends. It is a showcasing of the wines of Sonoma County.
This vineyard exhibits the showman in Coppola. The bottles are labeled extravagantly with the name Coppola attracting in big bold letters. Say, ‘votre santé’ like Coppola’s grandmother as he reveals here in prominent detail. You will get to see a side of Coppola you have not imagined. The wines available here are named very personally and the examples are the red named Eleanor; the Riesling named Sofia. There is a range of wines in the Director’s cut including a wonderful claret.
“Sip, Swim, Enjoy Life” is the motto here.
