Hopefully my review will help you decide/understand if this winery is for you !!
This is a beautiful location to visit in Wine Country ... but if you are interested in learning in-depth information about wine making and having an extensive tour from field to bottle processing ... this is not the location for you.
This property sits in Geyserville rolling hills of beautiful vineyards. The property is impressive with beautiful buildings, landscape and gardens. The tour provides historical information on Francis Ford Coppola and why he's created this lovely property for couples, families and friends to visit. It's about the POOL and having a place to relax and enjoy yourself!!
For me personally, I loved this property. The tour was informative on Mr. Coppola (as noted above) and included a brief walk to the vineyards where they provided basic wine growing information that didn't put me to sleep. The tasting included a mix of wines from low to higher pricing that were all delicious. The shops have a wide selection of items including Coppola Sauces. We didn't dine in the main dining area; however, it looked peaceful with a wonderful menu. We went for the pool ...
This property is about wine, dine and sunshine ... we spent the afternoon at the pool and as noted in other reviews it's best to reserve in advance. It's pricey ... but as a vacation afternoon ... it was money well spent for a couple of friends catching up on our lives. Our reservation included a changing/shower room referred to as a cabines along with reserved cushioned chairs, umbrellas, towels and water. Also included (or take home) were Sofia canned wines, signature water bottles and playing cards (nice perk !!)
The service at the pool is OUTSTANDING ... and I always say ... service is usually outstanding when you are nice. The lighter menu was perfect and if our wine or drinks were low they were quick to refil and ask if you needed anything else.
Again, it's about the pool and a beautiful place to relax.
Mr. Coppola ... thanks for creating this wonderful property !!
