Francis Coppola Wine Dinner

Posted on May 22, 2012


Phuket wine connoisseurs are in for a treat on May 25 with a wine dinner at the Boathouse Wine and Grill on Kata Beach featuring the wines of acclaimed Hollywood film director Francis Ford Coppola.

Francis Ford Coppola famously said, “Wine making and film making are two great art forms” and he should know having won a hat full of Oscars prior to founding his northern California Sanoma County winery which has just won the 2011 USA Wine Producer of the Year Award from The International Wine and Spirit Competition.

Emily Putman, the Director of International Sales for Coppola Wines, will present a range of Director’s Cut wines to complement a French gourmet menu specially created by Boathouse Chef and Maitre Cuisinier de France Jean-Noel Lumineau.

When the Coppola family decided to construct their winery resort in Sonoma County, they felt strongly about giving head winemaker Corey Beck, a Sonoma County native, the opportunity to make wines that reflected his own vision of the quintessential Sonoma wine. “Director’s Cut” became that endeavor— limited production, appellation-designate wines sourced from Sonoma’s diverse and distinctive microclimates. Named after the version of a film which most reflects the director’s vision, the Director’s Cut wines represent the winemaker’s vision of varietal wines, which express true appellation character.

In addition, every bottle of Director’s Cut pays homage to the history of filmmaking with its wraparound label designed after a Zoetrope strip, one of the earliest moving picture devices. Each Director’s Cut label is a replica of a strip from Francis’s personal Zoetrope collection.

The four course dinner will pair superb dishes with award winning Coppola Director’s Cut Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon in the most delightful of settings overlooking Kata Beach and the Andaman Sea beyond.

Cocktails at 7.00pm – Dinner from 8.00pm onwards

Baht 2,000 ++ per person
