Plan an Event

With our private event services, leave the details to us and focus on what’s most important: the wonderful feeling that accompanies sharing great food and wine with friends, family, and colleagues. Whether it’s a social event such as a rehearsal dinner, family gathering, or cocktail reception, or a corporate style meeting, team building event, or dinner, we have you covered.

Plan your next event with us and let our team create a memorable experience that will leave your guests talking about it for years to come. We offer all-inclusive planning from start to finish, with multiple venues accommodating groups of 25-300 guests. All of our private events are served with family-style dining, reminiscent of a Coppola family meal, with food sourced from our organically grown garden and prepared by our expert Chef, Tim Bodell. 

While we do not offer wedding ceremonies or receptions at Francis Ford Coppola Winery, ceremonies of up to 150 people can be hosted at Virginia Dare Winery.

West Tower

Our West Tower features the perfect setting for receptions, intimate gatherings, and private dining experiences. Equipped with an HDMI projection screen and surround sound, it’s also the perfect location for business meetings and presentations. The tower is located adjacent to the West Terrace and two bocce courts, ideal for team building activities after a day of meetings.
Available for both day and evening use.


West Terrace

Located adjacent to the swimming pool, pavilion, and bocce courts, the West Terrace offers an elegant but relaxed Wine Country atmosphere for your event, whether it be for lunch, dinner, or large family celebrations.
Private during evening (after 6:30pm) / semi-private during the day.


East Terrace

Offering the best views on property, the East Terrace is a spacious, outdoor venue adjacent to our restaurant, Rustic. Great for receptions, lunches, or dinners under the Alexander Valley sky, this location makes for an experience you won't soon forget. Rustic is unable to accommodate parties of 15 or more guests. 
Semi-private experience as our restaurant, Rustic, has adjacent outdoor seating.



Ideal for intimate gatherings or small corporate events, our Gallery is a semi-private reception and dinner space on the mezzanine level with views of the Alexander Valley to the east and the pool area to the west.
Available evening only (after 6:30pm).



Located near the swimming pool on the property’s north side is our Pavilion. Inspired by the bandshell that appeared in The Godfather: Part II, and featuring the original mural displayed in the 1974 film, the Pavilion is the ideal location for all kinds of entertainment at the winery, including events like our ever-popular Dancing Under the Stars!


Pool & Cafe

Upon entering the gates of our winery, visitors immediately notice the luxurious double swimming pool to the right of the main gate. Within splashing distance from the pool itself, the Pool Cafe offers a view of hillside vineyards and our landscaped park, and is the perfect location for a cocktail reception with passed appetizers before moving to another venue for a seated dinner.
