Inglenook2015Inglenook, one of the pioneer California wine producers, is trying to be itself again. Having survived the 20th century scourges of: phylloxera, Prohibition, and Wall Street, Inglenook Vineyard (brand, chateau, and Napa Valley vineyards) is back under one roof in the hands of Francis Ford Coppola and French winemaker Philippe Bascaules.

We especially like their 2011 Blancaneaux (blend of Roussanne, Marsanne, and Viognier), and the 2012 Edizione Pennino Zinfandel.
