Niebaum Coppola

In 1975, film director Francis Ford Coppola purchased the Niebaum estate, former home to the Inglenook Winery, with the idea of making a bit of wine in the basement, like his grandfather had. Today it is a fairly major wine producer.

One of the joys of visiting the estate, besides for the scenic beauty and a decent tasting room, is that Francis has created a small museum featuring some wonderful memorabilia from his movie career.
