Coppola Winery’s Dedication to Sustainable Winemaking
Francis Ford Coppola, known as the director of “The Godfather” film series, also plays the role of winemaker. His vision was to create a winery that celebrates the love of life while preserving the land for future generations.
For over 40 years, the Coppola family has implemented environmentally responsible practices into the vineyards and winemaking techniques to improve efficiency, minimize impacts and create a nurturing habitat for wildlife, on-site staff and visiting guests.
The Francis Ford Coppola Winery and surrounding estate vineyards are both certified by the California Sustainable Winegrowers Alliance, which provides third-party verification of a winery’s commitment to sustainability and continuous improvement. The winery is part of Sonoma County Winegrower’s three-phase plan to become the nation’s first 100% sustainable wine region by 2019.
