Winemaker's Notes:

2012 was an excellent vintage. As such, this year's rendition of Sofia Blanc de Blancs delivers a beautiful perfume of pears and honeysuckle followed by lively flavors of honeydew, apple and lime crowned with a hint of minerals.

Blend: 70% Pinot Blanc, 15% Riesling, 15% Muscat

The fruit for our Sofia Blanc de Blancs is grown in the cool vineyards of the Arroyo Seco in northern Monterey County. These vineyards benefit from alluvial deposits and gravelly sandy loam soils, which prevent vine vigor. When the fruit matures more slowly, its flavors and aromas become much more intense.

My Notes:

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."
