Francis Ford Coppola is using his winery’s partnership with the Academy Awards as a launch platform for two new wines, with a limited edition run being presented in gold bottles.
The famous director’s Californian winery agreed a partnership with the Academy in 2017 and a new Reserve Chardonnay and Reserve Pinot Noir will be among the estate’s wines being poured at the 92nd Oscars and Governor’s Ball this February.
The wines are made with fruit from Russian River Valley in Sonoma, the Chardonnay from the Dutton Ranch Vineyard and the Pinot Noir from King Vineyard.
A limited run of the new releases, including those being poured at the film industry’s big event, are being offered in gold-covered bottles, mimicking the famous winners’ statuettes.
