What You'll Get


Beloved by world civilizations since antiquity, wine’s popularity skyrocketed with the advent of the bottle, which eliminated the miles-long networks of straws once required for long-distance drinkertainment. See how the beverage world’s greatest team works together with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get admission for two to the Bottling Ballet Mechanique tour and tasting at the Francis Ford Coppola Winery in Geyserville (a $30 value).

Named for the iconic director of The Godfather and Apocalypse Now, the Francis Ford Coppola Winery gratifies grape groupies with a wide array of virtuosic vinos. Pirouette your way into the Bottling Ballet Mechanique tour for a chance to examine the winery’s bottling process, which is exactly the same process used to bottle model ships. From the huge barrels of grape soup in which wines are born to the priceless glass containers into which they’re packaged, the 45-minute tour—which takes its name from the way each bottle shimmies and pirouettes down the line—gives guests the chance to see and more fully comprehend how wine comes to take its uniformly bottle-like shape. Visitors also learn the back-stories behind the winery’s labels and take part in a palate-expanding tasting, completing the beautiful circle of libationary life.

The Francis Ford Coppola Winery is designed to accommodate visitors of all ages, from middle-aged oenophiles to diaper-wearing juice connoisseurs. Visit the on-site Movie Gallery, featuring artifacts from Coppola’s cinematic exploits, or grab some vino-friendly vittles at Rustic, the winery’s restaurant. Bocce courts, a pair of pools, and an entertainment pavilion all are scheduled to open this fall as well.

Tours available daily at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m. Bottling line does not run on weekends.
