Winemaking has been a Coppola family tradition for several generations. So has making art and providing entertainment, from music and cinema, to dining experiences and international hideaway adventures. For Francis Ford Coppola, all of these endeavors embody a celebration of life, merely designed with diﬀerent tools. Wine, like cinema, is the result of many people coming together to execute a singular artistic vision. Each year, Hollywood honors and celebrates the best of the year’s ﬁlms and ﬁlmmakers. It is in this spirit that we oﬀer The Family Coppola 92nd Awards wines.
The 2017 growing season began with a good deal of precipitation, but after a mild spring, temperatures increased and remained warm throughout summer and fall. The vintage delivered smaller than average clusters, leading to excellent concentration and high quality fruit. Our Chardonnay was ready for harvest a few weeks ahead of schedule.
Located in the Russian River Valley less than ten miles from the Paciﬁc Ocean, Dutton Ranch is comprised of more than 75 separate vineyards planted in the coolest areas of the region. This year’s Chardonnay is a single vineyard bottling from Gail Ann’s Vineyard, a parcel of Dutton Ranch that resides in the warmest part of the appellation, an area known for producing Chardonnay with expressive tropical tones.
