Coppola's Napa

Napa! And we kick off with a bang at Francis Ford Coppola's winery, which was very impressive. Great exhibitions there also on his collection of early light theatres. AMEND: turns out, Coppola has two wineries! Thanks, again, to Cat for the update. Miss Cat says: The Coppola winery we visited is the Inglenook one not the 'Francis Ford Coppola' winery as I listed. Coppola changed the name from Rubicon to Inglenook after acquiring the trademark in 2011. The other Francis Ford Coppola winery address in actually another village of Geyserville. It's a bit further north, with a pool and park where people hang out and drink wine in cabanas in the sunshine of Summer. It's described as a 'wine wonderland'.
There's a movie gallery too, complete with an Oscar on display.

A really pretty location, even on a crisp wintery day.
Francis Coppola Winery: 300 Via Archimedes, Geyserville, CA 95441
