Francis Ford Coppola Wines-Mother’s Day!

This Mother’s Day consider giving Mom something other than the typical jewelry. With a little help from Francis Ford Coppola Winery, Mom can celebrate her special day with a selection from the Coppola Diamond Collection.

The Francis Ford Coppola Diamond Collection began in 1997 as an ambitious endeavor to make wines of character and complexity at an affordable price. Sourced from California vineyards that not only have proven track records but are also managed according to rigorous standards, Diamond Collection wines are classic California expressions that offer fruit-forward, multi-dimensional flavor and immediate drinkability. Our illustrious lineup includes eleven single-varietal wines, plus our flagship red proprietary blend, Claret. These wines are a true labor of love–we invite you to share them with us.

So whether that Mom on your list is the party host or just likes to unwind in a bubble bath with a glass of her favorite wine, Francis Ford Coppola has a large selection for her to pick from.

Three Common Wine Selections include Chardonnay, Merlot, and Pinot Grigio.

Diamond Collection 2008 Gold Label Chardonnay

Released March 2009, the Chardonnay is a very light but crisp wine-perfect for someone still learning about wine flavors and taste. Chardonnay is one of my favorite wine choices and the Diamond Collection lives up to expectations. This white wine can very easily be paired with a chicken dish or heavy cream dishes.
