We are thrilled to share photos of one of our recently completed residences. Located in Santa Cruz County and built on a beautiful 18-acre property, the French Country style 7,000 s.f. home with its detached barn and garage truly captures the French countryside experience.
Work on Francis Ford Coppola’s new winery continues, now with an even more fevered pace as the project begins to near completion. Every week now, significant milestones are reached as millions of dollars of construction is put into place. As we get closer and closer to our opening date, the anticipation and media attention grows.
Built on the roots of what was once Chateau Souverain, this new winery brings a completely new concept to this popular wine region. Inspired by the “pleasure gardens” of Tivoli, and mixed with Mr. Coppola’s recent influences from Argentina that he gained while producing his latest film Tetro, this unique site will treat guests not only to the world famous Coppola wines, but also an estate garden setting that will feature internationally certified bocce courts, a performance pavilion, amphitheater, and a circular outdoor grill all surrounding a massive family friendly pool with 28 luxury changing “cabines”.
Unlike the traditional model of having visitors taste your wine and quickly leave, this new concept will encourage people to come with their entire family and stay for the day and well into the night while enjoying the wine, the food and the vast collection of memorabilia from Mr. Coppola’s film history on display. One thing is for sure, with the creativity and passion that this team has brought to the project coupled with imagination and ambition of such a renowned client, this project is certain to set a new standard in winery hospitality.
