Francis Ford Coppola has a long family history with wine making. He was first exposed to the wine making process while growing up in New York. During this time, his grandfather and uncles would make wine in the basement of their apartment using the grapes that they had shipped in from California.

In 1962, Francis met his wife Eleanor on the set of his first feature film. The two later moved to San Francisco and subsequently became the owners of a substantial and beautiful wine estate.

The vision behind their vineyard, is love of life with family and friends through food and wine.
