Sustainable Actions Spotlight

From vineyard practices to winemaking to restaurant operations, The Family Coppola places a heavy emphasis on sustainability.


At Francis Ford Coppola Winery, all of our planted acres are sustainably farmed and certified through the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance.

Our vineyards use leading water conservation practices including aerial imagery, weather stations, soil monitoring probes, smart scheduling, and drip irrigation.



We have increased vineyard biodiversity with bird boxes, diversified plant species through cover crop trials, beehives, and better soil conservation to improve the Russian River watershed fish habitat.

With the active presence of these beneficial insects, owls, birds, and soil fauna to combat pests, biodiversity in the vineyards has flourished.


We have reduced water use throughout every aspect of our winery operations. All water on-site is recycled and reused for site irrigation. We use leading water conservation practices in the wine cellar and in the vineyards.

Sustainability Efforts From Our Growers

The Grower Relations team at Francis Ford Coppola Winery has developed and nurtured long-standing relationships with a network of more than 150 neighboring grape growers.

To better enhance sustainability efforts throughout this grower network, we support our growers in becoming certified sustainable. Throughout the year we will help collaborate with the certifying agencies along with our growers to assist with this process. Additionally, at the end of each harvest the viticulture and winemaking teams will partner to provide feedback and discuss the outcome of the wines and to set future goals.

This initiative of becoming certified sustainable takes the environment into consideration while also creating the best quality grapes possible.
