Winemaker's Notes:

Pinot Grigio is a varietal that requires mild temperatures and delicate handling, so it's fortuitous that 2010 featured chilly spring weather and only moderate summer temperatures. These conditions resulted in a smaller than average crop size, but complex and intense aromatics of pear, apricot, and pink grapefruit, becoming quite luscious in character with flavors of quince, green apple, peach and minerals as a result of an extended growing season that lasted well into September. After a nice stretch of warm weather in Monterey County, we harvested our fruit and then fermented and finished in stainless steel to retain the varietal's juicy fruit flavors and invigorating mineral notes. It presents a versatile pairing partner with appetizers, brunch menus, salads and grilled fish.

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."
