Winemaker's Notes:

Pinot Grigio is a varietal that requires mild temperatures and delicate handling. Our Pinot Grigio is grown in the cool climate of Monterey County, which has ideal growing conditions for this grape. Furthermore, the excellent 2009 vintage featured only light spring rain, warm summer weather and no abrupt climates changes at season's end. This allowed us to be highly selective during harvest, choosing the very best fruit only when completely ripe. Fermented and finished in stainless steel, our Pinot Grigio offers bright, juicy flavors of tropical fruit and an invigorating note of minerals. Diamond Collection Pinot Grigio is delicious with crab legs, grilled halibut or rosemary pork roast.

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."
