The wines of the Diamond Collection are made from grapes grown in vineyards across California, from coastal regions to inland valleys. By carefully combining fruit selections with precise winemaking techniques, we are able to capture pure expressions of each varietal.

With twelve single varietals and two distinctive blends, the Francis Coppola Diamond Collection wines are so beautifully diverse, there is one to fit any setting and every wine-drinking occasion.

I recently got the opportunity to try out Francis Coppola Claret and Cabernet Sauvignon and I was pleasantly surprised. I had heard that both of these were good wines from friends and family but no one told me just how good. I enjoyed the Claret with a few family members the rich flavors danced on my tongue and tasted so good. My sister, who had never tried this wine before said that she loved it and we both agreed that we would be adding the Claret to our favorite wine lists to stock our supply. This blend was smooth and flavorful!

When I tried the Cabernet Sauvignon, I did so by myself as a way to unwind after a very stressful week and I couldn’t have asked for a better wine to help me do so. The soft velvety taste, rich with fruit and oak flavors helped me unwind and feel refreshed. This will blend has topped my charts in the Cabernet department and I will need to make sure to always have a few bottles on hand for guests. I was also able to try out the Queen Ivory using Cabernet and it was delicious and a great way to enjoy this wine.

Queen Ivory Recipe

Gently mix together:

  • 5 ounces Ivory Label Diamond Collection Cabernet Sauvignon
  • 1 ounce Pomegranate Syrup
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Splash of Limonata (or your favorite lemon soda)
  • Garnish with a sprig of mint

I highly recommend both the Claret and the Cabernet Sauvignon from the Francis Ford Coppola Winery to everyone!
