With the season opening of Francis Ford Coppola Winery in California comes two great classic spring wines - Votre Sante Pinot Noir and Votre Sante Chardonnay.
The pinot noir is an ideal choice for enjoying on those cool spring nights. Made with Mendocino fruit, this wine has a light aroma of sweet cherries. Our first taste, we were able to discern distinct flavors of raspberries and pomegranate. We paired this bottle up with a rich mushroom risotto for the perfect complement.
If your palate prefers white wine, be sure to check out a bottle of Votre Sante Chardonnay. The golden wine has a sweet aroma of pears, pineapple and vanilla with a taste of sweet peaches, lemon and cloves.
The winery has already opened its pool and outdoor winery park for the season.
Francis Ford Coppola Winery is located at 300 Via Archimedes in Geyserville, California.
