Diamond Collection Wines

It Takes Time to Make a Diamond

These seven simple words tell the complex story of the wine inside our bottles, the man whose name adorns them, and the unwavering people who enjoy them. After all, the Diamond Collection is a celebration of perseverance and a tribute to everyone who has overcome adversity to achieve their ambitions.

A beautiful struggle.

The history of Francis Coppola’s struggles to achieve award-winning success as a filmmaker and a winemaker have been well documented for more than five decades. But just as harsh conditions draw out the best fruit from a vine, a lifetime of adversity has extracted every ounce of the creativity that lives inside Mr. Coppola. Through his movies and his wines, he continues to express his passion for pushing the boundaries of the imagination—and he continues to inspire others to do the same.

A story in a bottle.

Like a film, a wine has a beginning, a middle and an end. It’s a story written by the sun and the soil; the vines and vintner; the barrels and the bottles. It’s a craft that requires patience, perseverance and a willingness to experiment with new ideas and techniques to create something truly memorable. The same determination that drove Francis Coppola to inspire the world through his motion pictures compelled him to reward likeminded dreamers with his wines.

“I have learned in the past…struggles usually bring about the best results.”

To the unwavering ones!

Here’s to everyone who’s overcome hard times to achieve hard-earned success; to those who have navigated all of life’s unpredictable twists and turns on the winding road to self-actualization. The Diamond Collection is a celebration of your achievement. Cheers!
