Winemaker's Notes:

Sofia Blanc de Blancs, a unique blend of Pinot Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscat, is a delicate sparkling wine perfect for any celebration. It offers sophisticated flavors, seductive aromas, and light effervescence — all packaged with striking, feminine flair.

The fruit for Francis Coppola Sofia Blanc de Blancs is grown in the cool vineyards of the Arroyo Seco in northern Monterey County. Known for its Burgundian-like climate, Monterey offers ideal conditions for Pinot Blanc, which include a long growing season and soils that accentuate the alluring floral characteristics inherent in this varietal.

The 2006 Sofia Blanc de Blancs exudes fresh aromas of peaches, apricots, and tropical fruit, as well as a light perfume of lemon cream. Like Italy's best Prosecco, this wine is vibrant and crisp, displaying bright flavors on the palate and seductive notes of honeysuckle on the finish.

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."
