The Family Coppola are lovers not only of wine but spirits as well. In fact, when the family gathers, the custom is to have a cocktail, or two, before dinner. They hope to bring even more joy to cocktail enthusiasts everywhere by crafting a collection of spirits as unique and remarkable as the women they honor. All of our spirits are crafted in a style that reflects the individual character of these trailblazers and are proofed with pristine water from our Napa Valley Estate.
As the main ingredient in any spirit, water plays an integral role in how our senses perceive the final product. Situated at the base of Mount Saint John, an extinct volcano, the ancient carbon in the soil assists in the filtration of many dissolved solids otherwise found in spring water. A lower content of dissolved solids in water means more neutrality and less filtration in order to reduce turbidity, allowing the distiller to maintain integral components of mouthfeel and flavor without compromising the appearance of the final spirit.
The natural beauty of an estate strewn with botanical gardens, fruit tree groves, and the now dormant Mt. St John Volcano. Searching for a modest "vacation cottage" in Napa Valley, Francis and Eleanor Coppola purchased a portion of what had been the historic Inglenook Estate in 1975. The Coppolas soon discovered the inherent treasure of what they now own. Every bottle reflects an authentic sense of terroir from using the water, fruits, and botanicals naturally occurring on the property.
