The Art of Film and Wine With Coppola Winery



“Winemaking and filmmaking are two great art forms...in both cases you have to start with top notch raw materials—whether it’s the land or a script.”
- Francis Ford Coppola

I've been trying to decide what to drink during the Academy Awards on Sunday, well Coppola Winery came to my rescue.Today I received some wine from the Francis Ford Coppola Winery Director's Cut Collection: the Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinema Red Blend and Chardonnay. The collection has a wraparound film strip label to celebrate the art of filmmaking which makes it the perfect pairing for Oscar Night.

I'll be sipping and tweeting on Sunday at @Shoshi. Sip this wine along with me during the Chris Rock #blackout and Leo Dicaprio winning his first Oscar (he better or else).

You can also enjoy a magickal night with your friends by watching one of this year’s nominated films paired with a bottle from Coppola Winery’s Director's Cut collection! It will be a night to remember. 



There are four wines in the collection:

Director's Cut Cabernet Sauvignon 2013:
  • Decadent and complex, our Director's Cut Cabernet is fragrant with exotic notes of clove and toasted oak.
  • Aged primarily in French oak barrels, this wine will develop further for several more years.

Director's Cut Cinema Red Blend 2012:
  • Spicy, full-bodied red wine layered with dark berry fruit impressions and an edge of earthiness.
  • Limited-production proprietary blend of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cab Franc and Petite Sirah from specific Sonoma County appellations.

Director's Cut Pinot Noir 2013:
  • An abundantly flavorful Pinot displaying vibrant tones of red cherry and pomegranate.

Director's Cut Chardonnay 2013:
  • A full-bodied Chardonnay bursting with ripe fruit flavor and prominent oak and spice.
  • Sourced from Russian River Valley, one of California's premier Chardonnay-growing regions.
