Francis Ford Coppola’s Inglenook Winery

“The Salon Tasting”

‘‘Indulge in a tasting of Inglenook’s renowned Estate wines, paired with sumptuous bites created by Chef Alex, in the elegant intimacy of the private and exclusive Daniel Salon. The Salon Tasting is designed for those who desire a luxurious private experience, without the formality of a seated tasting. Leading Wineries of Napa guests will be personally hosted by an Inglenook Sommelier.

 The Inglenook legacy began in 1879 when Gustave Niebaum, a Finnish sea captain, wine connoisseur and entrepreneur, came to Rutherford to build a wine estate that would rival Europe’s finest. When Niebaum’s grandnephew, John Daniel, Jr. inherited the chateau and vineyards in the 1930s, Inglenook had already earned international acclaim. Francis and Eleanor Coppola purchased the property in 1975 and have spent forty years reuniting the original vineyards, returning winemaking operations to the chateau and restoring Inglenook’s illustrious heritage with the help of renowned wine consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt and Managing Director and Winemaker Philippe Bascaules. In honor of this estate and its historical significance, the name Inglenook has been restored by the Coppolas.
