Winemaker's Notes:

This 2011 Sofia Rosé boasts a beautiful perfume of pomegranate, lavender and candied orange peel accompanied by sweet, juicy fruit flavors of strawberries, cherries, anise and tea leaves. It's elegantly styled with a dry finish, and assertive enough in flavor and spice characteristics to be extremely versatile with a range of foods.

Francis Coppola Sofia Rosé is a wine of unparalleled beauty. From its shapely, stylized bottle to its delicate fruity essence, Sofia Rosé is a wine like no other. When served chilled, its refreshing style makes a delicious partner to light summer fare and savory hors d'oeuvres.

Blend: 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache

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."
