Francis Ford Coppola Winery Launches “Wine, Whim & Song” Tasting Experience

The Revolutionary Music & Wine Pairing Adventure Explores the Sense of Hearing

Francis Ford Coppola Winery Launches “Wine, Whim & Song” Tasting ExperienceFrancis Ford Coppola Winery introduces Wine, Whim & Song – an all-new sensory experience pairing music with wine. By collaborating with music curators, Sonomadic, Francis Ford Coppola Winery has developed a wine tasting event that engages the sense of hearing using an untraditional approach.

Wine, Whim & Song is an enlightening wine tasting experience designed to combine the love of wine, music and discovery. Music and wine naturally share a certain harmony. They both call to mind memories, and evoke emotion, but do they really influence each other? Is the fruit in a wine highlighted with one song; is the acidity more prominent with another? During the 90-minute Wine, Whim & Song tasting, this subjective concept will be explored further, focusing on a variety of different music styles and an assortment of distinct wines. The program incorporates unique and engaging techniques designed to showcase wine tasting in a fun, lively and authentic atmosphere.

Wine, Whim & Song is the winery’s second innovative foray into sensory exploration with wine. The winery’s groundbreaking Tasting in the Dark, explores how flavors and aromas in wine are accentuated by simply turning off the lights, temporarily removing the sense of sight. With Wine Whim & Song, the sense of hearing is emphasized as music takes guests on a memorable journey through sound.

Offered one Saturday a month at the winery, Wine, Whim & Song includes a tasting of four to six wines and is $45 per person:

  • Saturday, October 19, 3 p.m.
  • Saturday, November 9, 3 p.m.
  • Saturday, December 14, 3 p.m.

In addition, for anyone not available to participate in the winery’s on-site experience, or for those wishing to recreate a similar experience at home, the winery offers a special collection package: Wine, Whim & Song, Volume I, which includes three Francis Ford Coppola wines and a complete CD featuring several dynamic artists along with pairing notes and more insight into this revolutionary program.
