  Francis Ford Coppola’s love for wine didn’t just sprout up overnight. His grandfather, Agostino Coppola, had a passion for wine back in the 1920s, when he used to make wine in the basement of his New York apartment. They weren’t sophisticated wines: they were just everyday wines that anyone could enjoy. Francis and Eleanor Coppola, Francis’ wife, attempted to continue this passion when they purchased their own vineyard in Rutherford, California in 1975 using the proceeds from The Godfather. This plot was a part of the historic Inglenook Winery, and it included the former home of Gustave Niebaum, member of the Culinary Institute of America’s Vintner’s Hall of Fame. After tireless effort by the whole family, the winery produced its first vintage in 1977 under the Niebaum-Coppola label. After many years of success, the family purchased Inglenook Winery in its entirety in 1995. In 2006, the winery was renamed to Rubicon Estate Winery in honor of the estate’s flagship wine. The Coppola family couldn’t stop there - in March 2006, they purchased the former Chateau Souverain winery in Geyserville, California, transforming it into the Francis Ford Coppola Winery. In their first four years, their family of wines exploded from 12 to 45 wines. Corey Beck was made the director of wine-making and the general manager of the winery, and he currently oversees seven wine brands. There are currently 9 lines of wine, each with a different personality and varietal composition. The Sofia line, for example, was created as a gift from Francis to his daughter, and it exudes charm, style, and romance. Read less

This is fresh and clean on the nose with a slight balsamic edge to the coffee toned black raspberry fruit. Sweet top notes of licorice and dried orange peel. This is round yet focused on entry, with a wonderfully raspberry fruit tone framed with soft tannins and lightly toasted oak notes. The balance here is really quite fine, and while this is a touch simple, it delivers really nice, pure and intense raspberry fruit. This turns a bit more cherry on the back end and gains some light herbal/floral notes on the moderately long, slightly oaky finish. This is not fancy but is quite attractive and will appeal to a very broad spectrum of palates. 90pts

Crisp with peaches, apricots and pears. A touch of oak and a bit of vanilla. Tastes like a Chardonnay twice its price.

Candied cherries, a bit astringent and jammy, this leads up into a fairly balanced pinot that has some ripe fruit notes laced with a bit of black and red licorice. A succulent finish that lingers just the right amount of time...

Breaking News! Votre Sante 2012 Pinot selected as a Top 100 Best Buy of the Year in Wine Enthusiast Magazine!! Francis Ford Coppola's Votre Sante wines are a tribute to his grandmother, who though not French, would say 'Votre Sante' every time she toasted due to her being born in Tunisia. Under this label he produces the two Burgundy varietals, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and they both represent super value! This Pinot is sourced from prime vineyards in Monterey, Carneros and Mendocino, great Pinot Noir growing regions. Temperature controlled fermentation is followed by aging in French oak barrels for 9 months. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 90 points saying "The personality of Pinot Noir really comes through in this charming, medium-bodied, lighter-colored, aromatic offering from Coppola. It has the blend of nuances that remind us of cherry, herb and walking through a pine forest, and offers a tangy texture and fresh finish that lingers."

From Francis Ford Coppola, Votre Sante is California Chard with the balance and style of a wine from France. Partially barrel fermented and partially stainless steel fermented it's aged 6 months if French oak barrels. The alcohol is a tame 13.5% and it undergoes only a partial malolactic fermentation. With the elegant touch of an intricate die cut label, Votre Sante is a pretty wine in all respects and a super value. The 2009 was a 90-Point Best Buy in Wine Enthusiast Magazine who said "This statewide blend stands up well against far more expensive Chardonnays. It’s rich and crisp in acidity, with tropical fruit, pear and peach flavors, as well as a generous coating of oak and buttercream."

A light, elegant palate and lovely perfume of strawberries, cloves, tea leaves, and violets. Its vibrant flavors of raspberries and cherries are highlighted by notes of vanilla and sandalwood, which makes for a nuanced wine that is both lively and versati

Striking a lovely balance between sweet fruit, zesty citrus notes and a spiced vanilla finish. This delivers a delicate perfume of peaches, lemons, and spiced pears along with luscious flavors of apples, pineapple, and toasted vanilla.

Fruit-forward, lushly-textured Pinot Noir expressive of sunny days and cool Pacific nights. Purple garnet in color. Aromas of raspberries, rose petals and tea leaves, and flavors plums, strawberries and allspice.

Monterey County provides ideal conditions for growing temperamental Pinot Noir grapes. Aromatic and juicy, this wine is great with lamb chops or wild mushroom ravioli.

Has a bright ruby color with generous aromas of red cherry and allspice. Rich layers of sweet strawberry and red plum flavors highlight the smoothly-textured palate, followed by delicate notes of ripe cranberry and sandalwood on the finish.
