Last Sunday I visited the Niebaum-Coppola winery in Napa Valley. The winery was bought by Francis Ford Coppola in 1995 and let me tell you, it is a gem! The atmosphere and interiors are very European and I felt at home immediately.
I spent a lot of time at the tasting rooms and the shop. Apart from wine, they sell such great items as Mama Coppola’s Pasta Book, Mammarella Pasta & Sauce (inspired by Francis’ childhood days), Neapolitan Dipping Oil (selected by FC) and my favorite jet set product SofiaMini, which I’m swallowing down my throat on the right. It tastes quite refreshing and even better than the poetical description on the SofiaMini website would make you believe.
