After visiting the Coppola site and wandering the grounds, gardens and pool area, we decided to have lunch. Sadly, it was not the experience we expected. We were seated in an inside dining area that was not very crowded. Our waiter was not a good listener and spent more time chatting with other waiter staff rather than taking our order.... More

It wasn't one of the best wineries I visited today. I loved the movie memorabilia aspect. The wine was decent but the service was subpar. It was way too crowded and commercial for my tastes.

This is a fun place. The gallery of movie memorabilia was fun. The swimming pool and cabanas looked like they would be a blast in the Summer. We ate family style on Tuesday night. Good hearty food. The wine tasting wasn't the best but overall, was a fun experience and would definitely recommend it to liven things up a bit

Some friends of mine and I stopped here just for fun while we were in the area. We were interested as fans of film, but also looking for wine tasting and good food. The film sites were excellent to see with props and awards for The Godfather, Apocalypse Now, Tucker, and more. The food was absolutely fantastic and with a... More

Terrible service. Waited over 20 minutes for a waiter and one only came because we flagged him over. What was even worse was that other people were served who were seated after us. 15 waiters walking around and we can't get service. Terrible! And its not like they were packed either. Only reason i stayed was because my wife was... More

The Coppola Winery is geared for tourist. It provided my husband and I nice change of pace from sampling wines. We didn't have time to try out the pool or Bocce Ball courts but we did enjoy viewing the movie memorabilia. The vineyards are beautiful and they have a nice tour. It was hit or miss in the Wine Tasting... More

Stopped here for lunch on day we were visiting wineries. Fabulous view if you are seated outside. Service is good and you are well taken care of. Portions are large. After lunch walked around the museum area to view pieces from his movies. They also have a pool and you can rent a cabana, towels, etc. so this is definitely... More

This winery is lovely. There is a swimming pool with private cabanas, unexpected at a winery, but done in a very upscale manner. Francis Ford Coppola has put several of his movie momentous in this winery as well. His oscars, the desk from The Godfather, items from Dracula and many other items are on display. It is a very interesting... More

We booked loungers at the pool, and hung out poolside after our wine tasting. Wine was great, poolside atmosphere was great, if you book it just allow at least a few hours at this winery.

My wife and I along with my brother and his wife were totally disappointed in the rude customer service we received on Saturday afternoon, 9/27/2014 at Francis Coppola winery. We had the Family Tasting Flight for 3 people. My wife doesn't drink. There were approximatately 20 people at the bar and only 2 servers. Our first tasting host served us... More
