“Even as a kid, I knew TECHNICOLOR offered the most beautiful movie color process. Technicolor, I learned, was not a photographic process but similar to lithography whereby primary colors were actually printed on the clear celluloid. For me, Technicolor was the standard of color for all movies. Director’s Cut Technicolor celebrates artistry in film and wine, two of life’s greatest forms of entertainment.” - Francis Ford Coppola

FILMMAKING AND WINEMAKING INTERSECT IN SONOMA

In the film business, the “Director’s Cut” emerged as a means for filmmakers to present their own creative vision of a story. At the Francis Ford Coppola Winery, Director’s Cut wines were created as a way for wine “director” Corey Beck to craft wines that would reflect his own unique interpretation of the quintessential Sonoma wine. Corey’s vision for Director’s Cut embraces appellation-specific sourcing, meticulous fruit selection, and numerous blending trials so that our wines capture the distinct nuances of Sonoma’s microclimates in a highly refined style well suited to fine cuisine and premium wine lists.

DRY CREEK VALLEY

Dry Creek Valley is one of the earliest grape growing sites in California dating back to the mid 1800’s. This soil is primarily gravelly and sandy loam – deep, well drained and fertile dirt that produces good crops of flavorful grapes. Long, warm days and coastal cooling in the evening enables the grapes to mature slowly while retaining acidity and balance, creating perfect growing conditions.
