Inglenook in the Napa Valley has true film star quality – it is owned by none other than Francis Ford Coppola, director of The Godfather movies. He and his wife bought the acreage under vine in 1975 and gradually added to the estate over subsequent years, eventually acquiring the rights to the Inglenook label. The story of Inglenook has indeed all the makings of a blockbuster movie: founded by a Finnish sea captain, Gustave Neibaum, in 1879, the winery survived the Great San Francisco earthquake of 1906 (the chateau was built to withstand the area’s geological instability) and the prohibition years to become a flagship of Napa fine wine. It specialised in Cabernet but left family ownership in 1970. In 2019 Coppola won a Wine Enthusiast Wine Star Lifetime Achievement Award for his dedication to winemaking.
