It's almost impossible to compare Coppola to other vineyards because it seems like it isn't really playing the same game as all the rest. In a way, this is best compliment a winery could get if patrons are open to new experiences. Only those expecting a typical tour and tasting will be put off by what Coppola offers. The wines that come the tasting fee are average, but only because you're not allowed to choose from all of the wines that the winery offers. But the wines themselves are not the main attraction. Rather, you can stare at the Godfather's car, his desk, memorabilia from Apocalypse Now, and more. Then, if you fancy a meal, there is a superb restaurant where outdoor seating and views of the valley are readily available. The food is sublime and moderately priced and the atmosphere is lively, and dare one say: Italian. As if that weren't enough, Coppola offers a pool with cabines, courts to play petanque and tons of outdoor areas to enjoy yourself. Come for the wine, but stay for the numerous other attractions!
