Francis Ford Coppola has been making movies for more than 30 years, and wines at his Estate Winery in the Napa Valley for almost 20. In February 1995, he purchased the remaining part of the original estate--the massive stone Inglenook Chateau and its adjacent vineyards. This purchase reunited Gustave Niebaum's original Napa Valley estate established in 1879 and preserves his legacy for future generations. Francis Ford Coppola has reunited all of the estate’s original vineyards and restored winemaking to the Chateau. In recognition of the importance of this site, the property has been renamed Rubicon Estate in honor of the flagship wine. This is part of the continuing legend that began in 1880.
