Our pool is now closed. More poolside fun and adventure comes your way in spring, 2017.
Francis Ford Coppola wanted to create a place for families to come and enjoy all the best things in life together. For years, he had seen children playing around the fountain at Inglenook, pleading with their parents to allow them to jump in. Francis always sympathized with the children, so he thought, Gee, the kids will want to go swimming, so let's have swimming pools.
Situated in the center of the park area at the winery, two swimming pools totaling 3,600 square feet are surrounded by chaise lounge chairs, which have become a welcome addition for children and adults on warm Alexander Valley days.
I ACCEPT THE TERMS & GUIDELINES FOR THE DAY OF POOL USE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE SAFETY MEASURES IN PLACE AND THE DETAILS LISTED ONLINE. I ALSO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA WINERY RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CANCEL MY RESERVATION SHOULD I NOT ABIDE BY THE TERMS LISTED, INCLUDING THE CANCELLATION POLICY.
