The Diamond Collection wines are made from grapes grown in California vineyards from both the coastal regions and inland valleys. Pairing well with the fruits of these selections (from the warmer valleys and cooler coasts) results in great and beautifully complex wines and this is certainly why Coppola's Diamond Collection is one of the most popular ranges of wines.

The cool air of the Pacific flows in the afternoon into the valleys that run across the ocean and run deep into the land. Monterey, the picturesque coastal town south of San Francisco, has such a nice cool valley. The fruit from this valley has a wonderfully ripe character, in addition to a nice freshness. The chardonnay for this Diamond Collection Chardonnay comes from this valley, and it is made on the fruit, by partly fermenting it on stainless steel. But a touch of wood does give it some extra complexity. He achieves this by allowing half of the wine to ferment in barrels, using the more subtle French oak. A particularly tasty and at the same time uncomplicated Chardonnay, dry and intense, with good acidity, is the result. This diamond collection chardonnay comes in a half bottle of 0.375 ltr

Grape variety : Chardonnay.

Colour                  : Medium straw yellow.

Smell : Beautiful citrus fruit in the scent, apple, ripe melon, wonderfully floral, some vanilla, smoky, nice and broad and seductive, wonderfully exotic.

Taste : A dry and smooth taste, with a little fat and butter, but especially delicious tropical fruit, a touch of caramel and vanilla, creamy and powerful.

Francis Ford Coppola (Detroit, April 7, 1939) is an American director, film producer and screenwriter known for The Godfather trilogy and Apocalypse Now, among others, and is considered one of Hollywood's most important directors. In addition, Francis Ford Coppola has been active in viticulture and trade since the 1970s. In 1975, he and his wife purchased the estate of Finnish sea captain Gustave Niebaum in Rutherford, California (located in the famous Napa Valley wine region) and the surrounding vineyards. That winery is now called the Rubicon Estate Winery. Coppola also owns the Francis Ford Coppola Winery in the Sonoma Valley.

Winemaking has been a tradition for many years within the Coppola family. In fact, Francis Ford Coppola has been making wine longer than he has been directing films. Grandfather Coppola used to make wine in the cellars of their New York apartment from grapes that had come over specially from California. The wines Coppola makes today are not the same as those from the cellars in New York, but they are made with the same philosophy. Wines to drink with friends and family.

The parent company of the Francis Ford Coppola Winery was named USA Wine Producer of the Year on November 16, 2011 by the International Wine & Spirit Competition.
