The Family Coppola 93rd Award Wines
These stunning limited-edition bottles have a completely gold-colored exterior that is inspired by one of the motion picture industry’s top honors. Each bottle was crafted as a symbol honoring the significant talent, passion and hard work achieved throughout the entire film industry. The exclusive gold bottles are produced in Italy by the Bottega Family.
Both are reserve 2019 vintages from Sonoma County, the first year that California was 100% drought-free since 2011, allowing for nice complexity and outstanding quality to this year’s fruit. The Chardonnay is balanced and bold, with notes of stone fruit and white peach and the Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley is earthy and spicy with good acidity. Neither is overwhelmed by their 14.5 percent alcohol, and are exceptional wine options to enjoy while toasting the end of award season. More details on the exclusive 93rd Award wines can be found here and purchased direct-to-consumer from The Family Coppola’s online store or Wine.com.
