Winemaker's Notes:

In 2010, we harvested weeks later than normal due to the chilly spring and mild summer months. It wasn't until later in the season that the temperatures warmed up, which resulted in extended hangtime for the fruit and a beautiful concentration of flavors. This year, enjoy a vivacious Chardonnay that boasts a silky texture and harmonious blend of succulent fruit, spices and toasted oak.

100% Chardonnay

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."

Winemaker's Notes:

2009 was an excellent vintage that featured light spring rain, warm summer weather and no abrupt climate changes at season's end. This allowed us to be highly selective during harvest, choosing the very best fruit only when completely ripe. As a result, this Chardonnay offers depth, richness, distinctive spice notes and a smooth, creamy texture. Diamond Collection Chardonnay pairs well with Fettuccine Alfredo, orange chicken, and pork tenderloin with peaches.

(search item no. 107773)

PRICE ON 10/24/2014: $14.99

Winemaker's Notes:

For our Cabernet Sauvignon, we combine fruit from appellations as far north as El Dorado and as far south as Paso Robles, where soil diversity produces more complexity in our wine. Likewise, some of our vineyards experience unique daily temperature fluctuations, where extremely hot days are tempered by very cool nights. This slows the ripening process and enhances the flavor and complexity of the fruit.

2009 was an excellent vintage that featured only light spring rain, warm summer weather and no abrupt climate changes at season's end. This allowed us to be highly selective during harvest, choosing the very best fruit only when completely ripe. The result of these amazing conditions is a richly textured, intensely fragrant Cabernet Sauvignon with supple tannins and sophisticated notes of spice and oak.
