Francis Ford Coppola
The Wine: Coppola Black Label Claret, $20
The Celebrity: Francis Ford Coppola, Film Director
The Story: Continuing the family tradition (his grandfather made wine in his New York City apartment during Prohibition), Coppola started his Sonoma County winery in an old carriage house in 1975. It’s a big winery now, at one point the 12th largest in the U.S.
Cappiello’s Bottom Line: “For me, this would be a great house wine. It has an elegant structure with soft tannins. It’s one to sit on the porch with on a summer evening.”
