Francis Coppola Diamond Collection
" The inspiration for the Diamond Collection was a bottle of 1906 Claret we found in the cellar of the Napa Valley property we purchased in 1975. I designed a new label reminiscent of this old bottle and created the Diamond Collection Black Label Claret, which is our company’s most recognized offering. Today, Diamond Collection includes 13 varietals, each identified with a brightly colored label. The quality and authenticity of Diamond Collection is extremely important because we are a family company and our name is on the label. As such, you can trust that we’ll always give you the very best." Francis Ford Coppola

Francis Coppola Diamond Collection 2016 Emerald Label Pinot Grigio

2016 saw California’s first rainy winter in years and the much-needed precipitation had a healthy effect on the vines. Warm spring temperatures arrived a few weeks ahead of schedule, but the grapes matured slowly, developing aromatic intensity, concentration, and optimal balance.

Pinot Grigio is grown in California’s cooler appellations where chilly evening temperatures and a regular incursion of fog help the grapes retain their crisp natural acidity.

Pinot Grigio comes in several styles and is influenced by the soil it is grown in. To capture the unique floral character this varietal demonstrates, this wine was fermented and finished entirely in stainless steel rather than oak.
