“I was always envious that every family member had a wine and I loved watching the process of how the idea evolves. It's very much like making a movie- -there's all these different components you have to check on - the designing, the tasting, the marketing. So I was excited when it finally came my turn. I wanted something that is light and is more directed to younger people trying to understand wine.” – Gia Coppola
Representing five generations of the family Coppola in the film industry, Gia Coppola is not only an accomplished filmmaker, she’s also a talented photographer, artist and impromptu (and impressive) mixologist. Shy is a word she uses to describe herself, but her accomplishments are far from shy. In 2012, after sitting on the board of directors for the family’s Francis Ford Coppola Presents wine, food and resort business for more than a decade it seems fitting that Gia was inspired to create her own line of wines. Gia worked alongside Francis and the winemaking and design teams to create a wine brand that reflects her personality. The collaboration garnered three distinct wines for Gia by Gia Coppola — Frizzante Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Pinot Noir — crafted to be light, unpretentious and inspiring.
