Among the Napa Cult wines, Inglenook is one the oldest estate, that kept a high quality level for over a century. The property has been bought by Francis Ford Coppola in the 1970’s and the wine is made by Philippe Bascaules, General Director of Château Margaux.

The Inglenook legacy began in 1879 when Gustave Niebaum, a Finnish sea captain, wine connoisseur and entrepreneur, came to Rutherford to build a wine estate that would rival Europe’s finest. When Niebaum’s grandnephew, John Daniel Jr., inherited the château and vineyards in the 1930s, Inglenook had already earned international acclaim which was made legendary by the famed 1941 vintage. Francis and Eleanor Coppola purchased the back part of the property in 1975 (1500+acres) and have spent forty years reuniting the original vineyards, returning winemaking operations to the chateau, and restoring Inglenook’s illustrious heritage with the help of renowned wine consultant Stephane Derenoncourt and Managing Director and Winemaker Philippe Bascaules. In honor of this estate and its historical significance, the name Inglenook.

In 1995, The Coppola Family reunited the historic Inglenook property, creating a Cabernet Sauvignon that epitomized the legacy of the estate. Now, Inglenook Cabernet Sauvignon continues to be a tribute to the historic worldrenowned Inglenook 1941 Cabernet Sauvignon. The 1941 vintage was produced by John Daniel, Jr. from vines brought to the Inglenook Estate from Bordeaux by the Founder Gustave Niebaum. Today, this estate-grown wine is blended with the best lots of Cabernet Sauvignon that remain after the highly selective blending of Rubicon.
