The Family Coppola
When we began to develop the idea for this winery, we wanted it to be a wonderland…a place to celebrate the love of life.”- Francis Ford Coppola
With a deep commitment to quality, authenticity, and pleasure, Francis Ford Coppola Winery is a unique destination to celebrate the best things in life.
Francis Ford Coppola has always been influenced by the idea of Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, which was the inspiration for ultimately all modern amusements parks. He remembers the beautiful theater pavilions with the curtains painted with peacock feathers that had little ballet performances. At Tivoli, there were rides, but most important than the rides were the cafes and the refreshments and just the sense of being in a “pleasure garden”, for all people to enjoy. This is the best phrase to describe what they’re creating here. He wanted the winery to become such a park for the family to go and enjoy, where there are things for kids to do, so they can be close to their parents who are sampling wines and foods.
In 2006, the Coppola family purchased the historic Chateau Souverain property in Sonoma County. The renovation began in 2008 and in 2010, the winery is unveiled with its newly tasting room, museum and Rustic Francis’ Favourites restaurant.
Francis and Eleannor Coppola have long supported sustainability throughout their lives and many business endeavours in an effort to preserve the land for generations to come. In 2012, the winery became certified sustainable through the California Sustainable Wine-growing Alliance and they continued this commitment by becoming 100% certified sustainable in 2019.
Located in a region of Portugal with one of the longest wine traditions, Adega de Azueira is more than 50 years in existence.
Domaine Daniel Chotard is located at the end of the Reigny village. The family-run estate produces unique Sancerre wines from their plots.
The estate consists of 14 hectares of vines within 31 lieu-dits of Pinot Noir(50%), Chardonnay (30%) and Pinot Meunier(20%), along with small amounts of Champagne’s “forgotten”grapes” – Pinot Blanc, Arbane and Petit Meslier. From empirical observation, Benoît and Mélanie have singled out 63 parcels that they vinify individually each vintage, permitting unparalled precision in blending decisions for base and reserve wines, but also letting them highlight single vineyard expressions of their land.
the idea of the label as a representative image of the product would be good if we already had an important past with the bottle. Cantine Europa has decided to focus on the bottled product, and therefore the bottles must be evident.
The company is named Feudi Salentini after the Feudalism time, when carriages, castles, dames and knights had a leading role in such a magical land. This was the extraordinary scenario where wine was considered to be the most prestigious and healthy drink.
