FRANCIS COPPOLA RESERVE In keeping with the Coppola promise to make every visit to the winery memorable and unique, Francis Coppola created the Francis Coppola Reserve label—limited production wines that showcase distinctive vineyards from Sonoma’s renowned appellations. Director of Winemaking, Corey Beck, hand-selects exceptional lots of fruit from these prestigious vineyards for crafting small-batch wines exclusively for winery guests, wine club members and those who shop with us online. Each lot is crushed, fermented, and aged separatelythrough the final blending stage to ensure the finished wine is worthy of the ‘Reserve’ title.
THE LABEL The artwork of film production designer Dean Tavoularis graces the labels of our FC Reserve wines. Tavoulraris met Francis Coppola during the making of The Godfather and the two artists have continued to collaborate over the years on a variety of creative projects, including more than a dozen films, the courtyard and fountain of Rubicon Estate in Napa Valley and the interiors and exteriors of the Francis Ford Coppola Winery in Sonoma.
