Spirits Spotlight: Francis Ford Coppola Winery Launches Award-Winning Diamond Collection Wines Into the Canned Category



GEYSERVILLE, Calif., July 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Francis Ford Coppola Winery is proud to announce the release of the winery's popular Diamond Collection white wines in cans. The winery, which revolutionized wine-in-a-can, now adds three premium quality Diamond Collection whites – Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, and Sauvignon Blanc – to the flagship portfolio. The move solidifies the winery's position as the leading premium wine producer in the canned category.

"It was Francis's instinct and creativity that first brought wine-in-a-can to the forefront of the wine industry with the introduction of the Sofia Mini cans more than a decade ago," says Corey Beck, Francis Ford Coppola Winery's President and Director of Winemaking. "For a category that's accelerated so rapidly over the years, consumers are still loyal to the Coppola brands they trust and admire, because they know we will deliver the same premium quality, consistency, and authenticity they know and love in a bottle, into a can."

In 2002, the winery began producing canned wine, and in 2004 they single-handedly launched the canned wine category with the debut of the stylish Sofia Minis (187ml mini aluminum cans filled with Sofia Blanc de Blancs sparkling wine), in an effort to make premium wine more accessible. Over the years, the canned phenomenon grew rapidly as other producers entered the category and consumers flocked to the single-serve options for their convenience and portability.

Known for being a trusted leader in the premium wine category, the canned category, and the alternative packaging and innovation category, it's a natural evolution for Francis Ford Coppola Winery to expand the ever-growing Diamond Collection into cans. The bold move redefines the canned still wine category by bringing an elevated level of superior quality and authenticity to the segment. The Coppola winery differentiates itself from canned competitors through its uncompromised brand integrity and consistent signature flavor profiles portrayed in the can, which embraces the distinct award-winning, critically-acclaimed wines that consumers recognize. The winery is repeatedly awarded top honors from prestigious wine industry competitions – receiving coveted Winery of the Year and Producer of the Year accolades multiple times – earning the reputation as one of the world's most impressive, top-tier, premium wine producers.

The Diamond cans will be highlighted on August 4 at Francis Ford Coppola Winery's Shine, Splash, Shindig mid-summer pool party event, taking place from 7 -10 p.m. Admission is $75 ($65 Wine Family). The evening swimming pool soirée is an ideal location to showcase Diamond cans' versatility for all things related to summer. To purchase tickets: www.francisfordcoppolawinery.com/en/visit/winery-events/.

The 250ml cans are available in a portable and lightweight 4-pack that's environmentally friendly and recyclable. The SRP is $19.99, making them the perfect accessory to all of life's adventures. Diamond Collection Cans may be purchased at the winery's tasting room and online at https://www.francisfordcoppolawinery.com/en/shop/ffcw/p/diamond-collection-4-pack-cans, and at select restaurants and retailers.

About The Family Coppola
The Family Coppola encompasses all of the things Francis loves most – cinema, wine, food, resorts, and adventure – and embraces quality, authenticity and pleasure as a backbone to each of these vibrant business endeavors. Anchored in Sonoma County, Francis Ford Coppola Winery, known for the superior level of quality and integrity, is, as Francis puts it, "a wine wonderland, a park of pleasure where people of all ages can enjoy all the best things in life: food, wine, music, dancing, games, swimming and performances of all types. A place to celebrate the love of life." Coppola's second foray into Sonoma County came in 2015 with the launch of Virginia Dare Winery, American wines since 1835, ushering in a new era of elevated quality and vineyard-specific wines. The Family Coppola Hideaways are a collection of unique properties where adventure meets serenity. Drawing upon inspiration from his film career and travels around the globe to the far reaching corners of the world, Francis created each resort embracing its off-the-beaten-track location, making it an ideal destination for exploring the natural wonders of the area while relaxing in tranquil surroundings. Additionally, The Family Coppola operates a venerable film production company, American Zoetrope; the award-winning all-literary magazine, Zoetrope: All-Story; Cafe Zoetrope in San Francisco's iconic Sentinel Building in North Beach; and Mammarella Foods, an authentic line of premium organic pastas and sauces. www.TheFamilyCoppola.com.

Drink Spotlight: The Infinite Monkey Theorem Moscato Wine in a Can



Moscato Can 4-Pack

Fragrant dried fruit and floral notes. Palate explodes with ripe apricot, grapefruit and honeysuckle. Finishes softly, lingering with a touch of residual sugar.


About the company

The Infinite Monkey Theorem states ‘that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a given text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare’. 

Yes we named our winery after an old mathematical theorem. When you think about it, it’s all about creating order out of a chaotic system and, we would argue, there is nothing more chaotic than growing grapes at 4,500 ft in Colorado and making wine in a warehouse in an alley in a city.  There are an infinite number of variables at play, decisions to be made and possible outcomes.  It is the job of our team to create order out of this inherently chaotic system as we craft our ridiculously good wine.

When we started the winery, we decided to focus on the variables that really mattered: using the best grapes, harvesting them at their peak, nurturing each batch of juice as it became our wine, and getting to know the people who drink it. We also decided to get rid of the variables that don’t matter: the vineyard  location, the rolling hills, and the tasting room covered in granite and marble.

Because The Infinite Monkey Theorem believes the culture surrounding the winery helps define the wine’s quality, the winery takes its position and influence in the local Denver community very seriously.  The wines are not only expressions of the local fruit, the process, and the personality of the winemaker, but also expressions of the people drinking the wine. It is a product born out of the community and thus representative of the community.

Water with a purpose.




Refresh, Reseal, Recycle

Sustainable packaging meets immaculate design in CanO Water, the new innovative water brand. Simple yet effective, it does exactly what it says on the can.

A refreshing can of natural spring water, offered as still or sparkling.




Sustainable Packaging
CanO Water® was created in response to the damaging impact that plastic bottles have on the environment.

People all over the world want ready to drink products tailored to their progressively mobile lifestyles, with the new innovative resealable lid, CanO Water® is the ideal drink for the on-the-go person.

The feature is a new solution that allows the can to be resealed after the initial opening.

As the resealable lid is far less than 1/5th of the total weight of the can, it gets absorbed into the recycling process without any compromise.

Where to Buy

CanO Water® is currently stocked at the following retailers as well as a range of other great independent stores. You can also buy a case of 24 from our online-store or Amazon.



Taste the Alps
CanO Water® stands out in concept and in taste. Filtered through the foothills of the Austrian Alps, our water collects vital minerals & electrolytes as it makes its way through the ground to our spring where it’s collected.

About the company

Belvoir Fruit Farms nestles deep in the English countryside in the idyllic Vale of Belvoir. We’ve been making cordials here for nearly 30 years, pressing fresh fruit and infusing flowers to mix with the famous Belvoir spring water.

Renowned for our elderflower drinks, we still use the same elderflower recipe developed by co-founder Mary Manners all those years ago. Originally, all the elderflowers were handpicked from bushes growing around Lord and Lady John Manners’ garden. The whole family helped to make the first batch of elderflower cordial, chopping the lemons and stirring the syrup. Lord John then popped the 88 cases of drinks into the back of his car and went round local farm shops, persuading the owners to buy a bottle here and there.

Today, demand is so high that Belvoir calls on the local community to help with the harvest, picking flowers from our own orchards and from hedgerows in the surrounding countryside.

Company Spotlight: Clubtails – Cocktail in a Can



Someone once told us that you can’t CAN a party. Well, we can CAN it. And we did. Eight kinds of party, in fact.  We call them Clubtails. You can call them awesomesauce.

Miraculous as it may seem, there now exists a range of perfectly blended cocktails in ready-to-drink, single-serve cans.  Crazy. Yeah, we know.

We know what you’re thinking: How did this almost unbelievable turn of events come to pass? Well, we were sitting around shooting the shizzle one day, with our arms aching from shaking and stirring cocktails, and someone wise said, “Can it!”  Someone got offended and before we knew it, there was no more mixing and no more mixer.



clubtails 1b  clubtails 1a


clubtails 1c



But the next day, when we were going through the drudgery of making cocktails once more the old-school way, we all remembered, “Can it!”

Why mix a mixie when you don’t have to?

What we’re dealing with here is 8 classic cocktails, reborn in can format, like a porcupine that gets reincarnated as something more sleek and insanely cool, like a jaguar.

Clubtails are cocktails as Nature intended them. But that’s Party Nature, not Mother Nature.

Think it’s impossible to get perfect cocktails from a can? You carry on thinking that – the rest of us are ready to party.

Ditch the dreary. Sip on some awesome.

About the Company

There you might see Jim Kelso, our head of quality control, looking dapper, sampling this season’s Costa Rican day lots, talking cupping scores with head roaster Steve Kirbach, still in his cycling cap. Walk across the airy space, which once housed a timber processing facility, and you’ll find Jonathan Sielaff in the training lab, bedecked in a dark denim Italian apron, experimenting with new brew methods and equipment, leading a barista polishing session, helping to perfect the consummate swirl when steaming milk.

Packaging Spotlight: Coca Cola New Look


The Coca Cola Company has rolled out a more unified look for its sodas in the U.S. and Europe. In America, this translated to the words “Diet Coke” and "Coca-Cola Zero" switching from vertical to horizontal on cans.

The change is part of Coca-Cola's effort to create a “single brand” identity.

"We’re focusing on packaging design in 2015,” a company spokeswoman told the Daily News. “Other aspects of the pilot strategy and testing will be explored based on global learnings and U.S. business results.”

Other countries, particularly Spain, got more exciting new packaging. Spanish Coke Zero, Diet Coke and Coke Zero Zero — the caffeine-free Coke Zero — cans now have red and white labels similar to that of original Coca-Cola. They will also be marketed together.

Coca Cola Follows the Slim Can Trend with new 250ml version



Coca-Cola is releasing slimline 250ml cans across the MyCoke trilogy, Coca-Cola, Diet Coke and Coca-Cola Zero, as part of the company’s commitment to offer healthier soda choices.

The slimmer cans will be introduced from mid-July in the UK and Ireland following their recent launch in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.

The new 250 ml can has been created as a healthier alternative to the traditional, full-size version—it contains 34 calories fewer than a regular 330ml Coca-Cola. It will also be the first Coca-Cola pack in the UK to carry the Spotify logo, as part of Coke’s global partnership with music provider Spotify.

The launch will also be supported with TV commercials, outdoor and online media, as well as a new partnership with Blippar, the company that offers the image-recognition phone app aimed at bringing to life real-world products with augmented reality experiences. The activation will allow users to “blipp” the new can for a 3D interactive experience and to access music tracks via their mobile devices. This will be a staggered campaign that will roll out from launch through to Autumn.

“The slimline cans offer people a handy Coca-Cola, Diet Coke or Coca-Cola Zero at great value. It also forms part of our ongoing commitment to provide the people who enjoy our drinks with greater choice in terms of calories and portion size, supporting our goal of helping to promote greater awareness of energy balance in diets across the UK,” commented Jon Woods, general manager of Coca-Cola for Great Britain and Ireland.
