2017 Winery of the Year

Tastings & Experiences

We’ve always felt that you should know what goes into every bottle of wine. It’s with this philosophy that we created each of our unique experiences, highlighting our award-winning property and portfolio of over sixty wines.  From grape to bottle, we share the secrets behind our state-of-the-art production, partnership with growers across Sonoma County and California, and the artistic influence behind each of our labels. Surrounded by sustainably farmed vineyards, you can enjoy flights of our award-winning wines throughout unforgettable wine experiences.

A complimentary splash of two wines are available daily at our Main Floor Tasting Bar, served in our traditional Italian Trattoria glassware.

Francis Ford Coppola Winery is closed during this time and we encourage you to continue to check back to our website regarding when we may reopen.  

During this time, we invite you to enjoy our complimentary Virtual Private Tasting or Virtual Happy Hour. In addition, you are still welcome to reserve future experiences, without any charge to your card on file. Should we need to cancel your future reservation, our Guest Services team will reach out to you.  

We look forward to hosting you at the winery soon! In the meantime, we hope you will enjoy one of our Virtual Tastings from the comfort of your home.

Virtual Wine Tastings

Virtual Private Tasting

Have you ever wanted to go wine tasting without leaving your couch? Here’s your chance!

We are standing by and ready to welcome you to the winery…virtually, of course! With any purchase of four wines from our Online Store or in a local store near you, enjoy a complimentary private experience with a host from the winery. From the comfort of your home, taste through your choice of award-winning wines while learning the history, stories, and winemaking philosophies behind our wines.  All you have to do is provide us the 2-4 wines that you purchased online or locally and our hosts will curate the order of your flight, then meet you online for a private, video wine tasting*.

Ready to reserve your experience? Send us an email at GuestServices@FrancisFordCoppolaWinery.com and we will be in touch to coordinate all the details! Please include your name, phone number, the wines (and vintages) that you would like to enjoy during your tasting, and where you purchased the wine. 

Virtual Happy Hour Tasting

If you’re anything like us, you’re missing your friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers during this unprecedented time. Let us help you plan your next get-together, without anyone leaving their home!

Get a group of 2-8 friends together for Virtual Happy Hour, complete with your own host from the winery! Shop our online store or visit your local store to order our Award Winning Golden Tier Collection, Sofia Sparkling Trio Collection, or choose any three of your own wines, then get your friends and family together for a private tasting online. Each guest in the tasting will receive their own personal login for the tasting, so everyone can enjoy from their own home.  Our host will guide you through the tasting of your three wines, sharing the stories behind them and answering all your questions along the way*.    

Ready to reserve your experience? Send us an email at GuestServices@FrancisFordCoppolaWinery.com with your name and phone number, and we will be in touch to coordinate all the details.
