Francis Ford Coppola buys Geyser Peak

  1. I can only hope they will not degrade the physical appearance of the property similar to what they did to Chateau Souverain but I will not bet on it.

    1. Going back some years, there was a "retirement home" outside of Grand Junction, CO, and it was sold to become a vineyard.

      I commented that the new name should be "Geezer Peak."

      Note sure that it worked...


      1. I have never been a big fan of any Coppola wine, so do not hold out any hope that the property will prosper, but that is just me.

          Well, keeping in mind that his "Coppola" label isn't really aimed at consumers like you and I, do you not like Rubicon?

            I have had several, and have done a "vertical tasting," and have not really been impressed. It was not bad, but with so many other options, I felt that they could have been better. Maybe just me?
