Haute Living Goes Wine Tasting With Francis Ford & Gia Coppola

Haute Living | Nov 17, 2020

What happens when you get to not only drink with, but learn from a legend? That was Haute Living‘s situation on Monday, when we sat down with six-time Oscar-winning director Francis Ford Coppola, our October L.A. cover star, and his filmmaker granddaughter Gia Coppola for a tasting, presented by Aston Martin Residences, of six wines from their Francis Ford Coppola wine portfolio. We chatted with Gia about how she’s making her line of wines more millennial friendly, and chatted about everything from wine to history to luxury with the iconic director. Watch our chat with the Hollywood icon below!

Francis Ford Coppola is best known as the six-time Academy Award-winning director of such epic films as The Godfather trilogy and Apocalypse Now. As a writer, director, and producer, he has been a central figure in contributing to the shape of contemporary American cinema.

His creative pursuits run wide, however, and he is one of those rare individuals who can turn his dreams into viable realities, perhaps because of his clarity in seeing life as being full of all the possible ways to tell stories wanting to be told. He tells those stories in a variety of ways these days, through travel with his the Family Coppola Hideaways and with winemaking, a Coppola family tradition for several generations. He owns Inglenook in Napa Valley and the Francis Ford Coppola Winery in Sonoma.
