Aside from being a world-famous Hollywood director, Francis Ford Coppola is also a world-famous wine connoisseur. You may know him for the Godfather Trilogy and recipient of various Academy Awards, or you may know him as the owner of Francis Ford Coppola Winery and producer of various wines: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon. This week Coppola is getting a lot of attention for some vintage bottles he’ll be auctioning at Christie’s in New York, one of which is a 1941 vintage bottle of Ingelnook, estimated to fetch between $8,000 to $12,000. There will be more than 300 bottles of expensive wine for sale at the September 24th “NYWinesChriste’s” event that will be hosted by Christieís auction house in New York. Here is the auction catalog. This is probably the only chance you’ll ever get to partake in a bottle from Francis Ford Coppola’s personal vault.
