Tasting Set Includes:
- Francis Ford Coppola Sofia Rosé
Feminine and stylish, with a fragrant perfume of wild strawberries, cardamom, and lemon peel, this Rosé is lively and balanced with succulent flavors of tangerine and a hint of stony minerals. Sofia Rosé is a wine of unparalleled beauty. From its shapely, stylized bottle to its delicate fruity essence, this 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: 50% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 20% Pinot Noir
- Francis Ford Coppola Diamond Collection Oregon Pinot Noir
Graceful and well-balanced, this vintage of Golden Tier Pinot Noir offers a fragrant nose of spices with kisses of earth and flowers. Vibrant on the palate, the wine delivers dark, freshly crushed fruit flavors and a silky texture. Subtle tannin structure is enhanced by seasoned oak. Enjoy this wine slightly chilled or at room temperature. This wine reflects the essence of the appellation and flavors that make Oregon Pinot Noir so desirable.
- Francis Ford Coppola Director's Cut Cinema Red Blend
Director's Cut Cinema is composed each vintage from Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel. Because they made single varietal Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel for many years now, they understand the diverse profiles of different selections and know which work best when blended together. Blend: 51% Zinfandel, 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petite Syrah

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."
