Winemaker's Notes:

In 2010, we harvested weeks later than normal due to the chilly spring and mild summer months. It wasn't until later in the season that the temperatures warmed up, which resulted in extended hangtime for the fruit and a beautiful concentration of flavors. This year, enjoy a vivacious Chardonnay that boasts a silky texture and harmonious blend of succulent fruit, spices and toasted oak.

100% Chardonnay

About Francis Ford Coppola Winery:

Francis Ford Coppola Winery, re-opened in July 2010, is the latest venture from Francis Ford Coppola, whose passion for wine, food and adventure is nowhere more evident than in this new production – a winery resort located in the heart of Alexander Valley, California. Among the many attractions at the property, Francis Ford Coppola Winery features a wine tasting bar, two restaurants, swimming pools, a movie gallery, a performing arts pavilion and a park area with game tables and bocce courts.

Francis puts it best, saying the winery is meant to be "a wine wonderland, a park of pleasure where people of all ages can enjoy all the best things in life – food, wine, music, dancing, games, swimming and performances of all types. A place to celebrate the love of life."
