Over the next several decades, under the guidance of the legendary John Daniel, Inglenook built a reputation as the source of some of the finest wines ever made.
By 1975, however, when Francis and Eleanor Coppola first purchased part of the famed property, the Inglenook Estate had long since been broken up, and its name sold off. The Coppolas spent the next 20 years reuniting the vineyards and restoring winemaking to the historic Inglenook Chateau.
Today, in addition to the Cabernet Sauvignon that dominates the estate, the Inglenook acreage also is planted with Zinfandel, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah and six acres of white Rhone varietals that produce the estate's flagship white, Blancaneaux.
Inglenook is now completely restored to original dimensions and is, as Francis Ford Coppola put it, "America's great wine estate once again."
