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.

Wine Notes

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.

There are two techniques for growing Zinfandel in Dry Creek Valley. One consists of traditional farming practices and includes the dry farming of mature vines that are head-trained, spur-pruned, and severely thinned in the spring to produce low yields. The other method utilizes double cordon spur pruning, on-wire trellising, drop irrigation, and carefully manicured canopies. We source our Zinfandel from vineyards that are farmed both ways. The combination produces wine that’s multi-dimensional and extracted.
