Eleanor Coppola’s wine release and book signing is June 26
Eleanor Coppola will celebrate the inaugural release of Eleanor, a red wine blend, with a book signing at Francis Coppola Winery in Geyserville. Guests will receive a glass of wine, a copy of Eleanor’s book “Notes on a Life” and the opportunity to have the book signed by Eleanor herself.
“Notes on a Life” follows 30 years of Coppola’s life as she juggled raising children and being there for Francis as he directed films, requiring the family to make frequent moves. It consists of short passages from each day, beginning with the death of her oldest son Gian-Carlo Coppola at age 22 and the birth of granddaughter Gia just months later.
Space is limited. Tickets are $40 and can be purchased at (707) 857-1488 or franciscoppolawinery.com.
