Francis Ford Coppola Winery has a new program, Books & Bottles, created in partnership with Tall Poppy Writers, a U.S. author-driven marketing cooperative exclusive to female authors who write award-winning fiction in all genres.
Books & Bottles is a quarterly curated offering of new selections of books from Tall Poppy Writers paired with two bottles of wine from Francis Ford Coppola Winery and a booklet featuring themed recipes, playlists, author bios, interviews and more.
Designed for wine and book enthusiasts, Books & Bottles could be the ideal gift for hosts who want to design a book club night or an evening home alone.
The inaugural Books & Bottles will feature “I Like You Just Fine When You’re Not Around,” a warm comic novel by USA Today best-selling author Ann Garvin, or the page-turning thriller “The Truth About Thea,” by Amy Impellizzeri.
Consumers will be able to choose one book along with two suggested Coppola wines, red or white. The wine selection for this collection can include an assortment of award-winning Diamond Collection wines, Sofia wines, Rosso & Bianco wines or Votre Santé wines.
Recipe pairings will consist of entrées and desserts along with a playlist to match that features a wide array of music recommendations.
To celebrate the launch, Francis Ford Coppola Winery is hosting book readings and author meet-and-greets on Dec. 6 and 7 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the winery’s upstairs gallery.
Limited complimentary tickets are available and must be reserved. This event is for adults 21 and older. To register, visit: francisfordcoppolawinery.com/en/visit/winery-events/.
Each Books & Bottles shipment costs $49 and will be available for purchase online here. The first Books & Bottles release is also available on Amazon.com through the end of the year.
