Named after the version of a film which most reflects the director's vision, Director's Cut wines represent our winemaker's vision of varietal wines, which express true appellation character.
In the film business, the “Director’s Cut” emerged as a means for filmmakers to present their own creative vision of a story. At Francis Ford Coppola Winery, Director’s Cut wines were created as a way for our winemakers to craft wines that would reflect their own unique interpretation of the quintessential Sonoma wine.

Director's Cut wines embrace appellation specific sourcing, meticulous fruit selection, and numerous blending trials in order to capture the distinct nuances of Sonoma's microclimates.
Director’s Cut Cinema is composed each vintage from Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel. Because we’ve made single varietal Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel for many years now, we understand the diverse profiles of different selections and know which work best when blended together.
The 2017 growing season began with a good deal of precipitation, but after a mild spring, temperatures heated up and remained quite warm throughout summer and fall. The vintage delivered smaller than average clusters, which led to excellent concentration and high-quality fruit.
