  • About this winery

    Francis Ford Coppola has a long family history with wine making. He was first exposed to the wine making process while growing up in New York. During this time, his grandfather and uncles would make wine in the basement of their apartment using the grapes that they had shipped in from California. In 1962, Francis met his wife Eleanor on the set of his first feature film. The two later moved to San Francisco and subsequently became the owners of a substantial and beautiful wine estate.

  • Tasting notes

    Experience a rich perfume of raspberries, cherries, vanilla bean, and pepper followed by lively flavors of currants and plums, and nuances of cocoa, cloves, and a hint of lavender. With its persistent finish and balanced delivery, this wine offers allure and complexity.

  • Viticultural notes

    The Russian River Valley climate is defined by a regular intrusion of cooling fog from the Pacific Ocean a few miles to the west. Much like the tide, the fog ebbs and flows, arriving each evening, cooling the area down from its daytime temperatures by as much as 35 to 40 degrees. This natural air conditioning provides for an extended growing season where the grapes mature slowly for optimal development and maintain a good level of natural acidity. The Russian River Valley’s loam and alluvial soil compositions create a very rich and fragrant Pinot Noir that offers pronounced floral notes and a distinct earthy character.

  • Winemaking notes

    After the grapes are pressed, we utilize open-top fermenters and punch the cap down several times a day for extraction. When fermentation is complete, the wine is placed in a combination of new and used French oak barrels; racking occurs several times throughout the maturation process.
