We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Winery with its museum of movie memorabilia. The building and grounds are lovely, with beautiful views and fragrant roses. We enjoyed a relaxing outdoor lunch at the Rustic restaurant. Food and wine were great, and our waitress Melissa was friendly and welcoming. She offered tastes of several wines so we could make informed... More

Director's Cut is my favorite Coppolla Wine, and in particular cabernet sauvignon. We re wine club members and this winery does a good job of selecting wine for shipment. I like the unique spiral labels on the bottles. I like the staff here. We like to eat at Rustic. The bocci ball court and swimming pool are nice when we... More

When we decided to visit Sonoma we chose Geyserville partly due to the proximity of this winery. When we got here we quite quickly realized that this place is more of a theme park than a winery. As someone else wrote, the word disneyfication does seem to appropriately describe this place. If I would review this as a theme park,... More

Good place to spend a day at a lovely pool along with tastings of some very good wine. It's a long way to go and is expensive for what you get. It's a splurge if you can afford it and barely worth it if you hit a nice sunny afternoon. A windy day will ruin it for you as the... More

Coppola was our last winery of the trip for our family group of nine. We wanted to experience atleast one big-production winery and this turned out to be the best choice! As you walk onto the property, you will probably think, "It's like Disney World in here!" There a pool in the front with cabines, bocce courts, a massive gift/wine... More

My main reason for visiting the winery was to see the collection of film memorabilia and I spent over an hour browsing round the gift shop which doubles up as the exhibit area. The Tucker car is absolutely stunning and I was sorely tempted to sit behind the Godfather desk but I guess I would have been thrown out! The... More

Was visiting the Bay area and wanted to see at least one winery. Chose here because I love The Godfather movies and learned they had a lot of memorabilia inside. Absolutely loved it here! Spectacular grounds and had a few beers at the outside bar area near the pool. I enjoyed it so much I could've stayed all day. All... More

This was an absolute highlight of our day in the Napa region. Beautiful winery with awesome service, friendly, unpretentious staff and great memorabilia from some of this iconic director's best films - including all his Oscars, the desk from the Godfather, the Tucker Car and costumes from Dracula and Apocalypse now! Beautiful gift shop too. We happily sampled a selection... More
