Coppola's Rubicon Retains Original Name

Don't be confused if you are looking for Francis Ford Coppola's Rubicon Estate in Rutherford, Napa Valley and all you can come across is Inglenook. As of today, the wine and movie mogul has acquired the iconic Inglenook trademark, which is the historic original name of the estate.

Inglenook and its wines played a pivotal role in defining Napa and dates back almost 150 years when the Inglenook Winery was founded in 1879.

In addition, Bordeaux winemaker Philippe Bascaules will be brought on board to take the position of Estate Manager and Wine Maker. Bascaules has spent the past 21 years at Chateau Mârgaux. In his new role he will lead a team of winemaking professionals to produce the New World estate wine produced in the Old World style.
