Winemaker's Notes:

Sauvignon Blanc grapes are the first to be brought into Francis Coppola's winery each year and they are picked at different brix to sustain acidity, citrus aromas and lower alcohol content while creating a broad palate and rich ripe fruit flavors. This Sauvignon Blanc is fermented and aged entirely in stainless steel to further preserve its fresh varietal character.

Appearance: Straw yellow with golden highlights

Aromas: Bright notes of peaches, lemon zest, and fig

Palate: Honeydew melon, pink grapefruit, and juicy pear

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."
