“wonderful”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

Today we visited this wonderful winery. Beside the wonderful wines and beautiful surroundings this winery also includes a pool, movie memoribila from Coppala's movies and a restaurant, Rustic. The food was great as was the tasting. The tasting was very reasonably priced ($7 to a flight) and we even found a 2 for 1 coupon. The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. Overall well worth the trip.

“Worth the drive”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

This winery (it's actually so much more than that!) is a little out of the way if you're just in Napa for wine tasting but so worth the drive to see, I think. Movie memorabilia, great restaurant, beautiful grounds, knowledgeable and cheerfully helpful staff, wonderful wine tasting- the works. Someday i i would like to go and spend the day at the pool. We had lunch at the restaurant and it was amazingly good. Our tour guide, Jill, was delightful!

“Worth Seeing”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

We recently were in the area for a few days and had the opportunity to visit about 15 wineries. All of them are unique and some more special than others. I dont want to get into the quality of the wines as that is personal preference. If you are only going to see a few places though I would put this on the list. The grounds are very large and we loved looking at all the movie memorabilia. We thought the pool area was pretty cool (they even have a life guard and changing cabanas) as were the Boccee ball courts (which we played a game on). We had no issues with crowds or getting service. I think that has mostly to do with being there in April and on a weekday. You have to check out the upscale bathrooms also while you are there. We did not try the restuarant but heard it is good. Its worth stopping at.

“A Must See and A Must Go Back”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

If you want something to look at and enjoy while wine tasting this is the place for you. First off it's a gorgeous facility with a pool. You can spend the day, eating, sipping wine and enjoying a fantastic view. The wine is good and priced right, the staff is wonderful and the museum of Coppola memorabilia is fantastic. Oscars and Golden Globes, cars, costumes, if you like this kind of thing, this is a must see while in wine country. I've gone several times and brought friends to check it out. Have fun!

“worth a stop on Highway 101 for both the view and the wine...”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

Beautiful winery with vista views to the east of vineyards and mountains. Today's $7 wine flight tasting included the choice of 4 wines from a list of 10 wines. My wife and I each ordered a flight -- my choice being the white wines and her choice being the red wines. Our server actually ended up serving each of us 6 wines, including two wines not on the public list. The white wines were crisp and well balanced with lots of citrus and grapefruit overtones. The red wines were aromatic and were much appreciated by my wife. We came to the tasting room in late afternoon, as we had dinner reservations for the adjoining Rustic restaurant. We chose not to buy any bottles of wine in the tasting room because we are traveling in our car for the next week and we didn't want to worry about caring for the wine while we travel. We do plan to buy some Francis Ford Coppola wine when we return home. "Traveling the world one meal at a time..."
