COPPOLA WINERY CHANGES NAME
Francis Ford Coppola is changing the name of his Sonoma winery from Francis Ford Coppola Presents Rosso & Bianco to the more concise Francis Ford Coppola Winery. “We are just a few months away from finishing the new tasting room and restaurant. For a place that is meant to be fun and family friendly the name I originally chose was kind of unwieldy. So in advance of the opening of the new space this fall, I decided to call it the obvious - Francis Ford Coppola Winery,” said Coppola. The winery has remained opened during the 2 years of redesign and renovation, with a temporary tasting room receiving visitors. Since acquiring the property in 2OO6, Coppola has introduced three collections of Sonoma appellation wines: FC Reserve, Director’s Cut and Director’s.
