He is a movie icon and also a winery owner. The Francis Ford Coppola Winery, Vineyard and Restaurant are situated in 300 Via Archimedes, Geyserville, California.
Mr Coppola puts it best, saying the winery is “a wine wonderland, a park of pleasure where people of all ages can enjoy all the best things in life – food, wine, music, dancing, games, swimming and performances of all types. A place to celebrate the love of life.”
Dan Berger ( judge representing the USA) invited the Francis Ford Coppola Winery red blend into this prestigious wine competition and it joins another 99 wines coming from the US for the Challenge to be judged in Sydney in August.
There will be 100 wines also entered by South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Argentina and Chile making 600 wines in competition to discover the New World Champion Nation and 16 trophy winners.
A rare wine show in that all entries are by invitation from the individual judges.
“Because the wines are all pre-selected by each of the judges the standard of wine quality must surely be higher than any competition of this size in the world”. Bob Campbell MW.
