Winemaker's Notes:

To create a light, fresh Sauvignon Blanc that displays intense fruit flavors and exceptional balance, grapes were sourced from three different appellations. Grapes from Napa give juicy tropical fruit flavors, the Alexander Valley fruit provides a solid backbone of citrus, while Mendocino grapes contribute to the luscious aromatics of the Diamond Sauvignon Blanc. To keep this varietal bright and refreshing, the wine is fermented and finished exclusively in stainless steel.

Appearance: Pale straw

Aromas: Pink grapefruit, tropical fruit, and fig

Flavors: Summer melon, lemongrass and a hint of gooseberry

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."
