Mining movie memorabilia
Watch this car
Once you’ve seen the car, you’ve got to watch the movie, if only to see Jeff Bridges living in Steve Ledson’s mansion. $9.95 at Coppola Winery, or from Amazon.
Dress like Francis the next time you watch Apocalypse Now. The authentic French wool beret ($25), the silk scarf ($80) and the Coppola Winery fleece jacket ($85) will put you in the proper movie mood. At Francis Ford Coppola Winery, 300 Via Archimedes, Geyserville. Francisfordwinery.com, 707.857.1400.
Disappear in the vines
The Vinoflage-fabric shirt was designed by Coppola’s research director, Anahid Nazarian, and is supposed to be a big hit with the vineyard crew. $35 at the winery.
Wear this bottle
Pop the plastic and this wine bottle unfolds into a T-Shirt, celebrating Coppola’s Diamond Collection varietals. $25, in chardonnay, syrah, cabernet and pinot noir. At the winery.
Sip with Sofia
Coppola’s director daughter inspired this blanc de blanc sparkling wine (hints of tropical fruit), perfect for a summer evening, and there’s no need for translation. $19 at the winery and at retail shops.
Bailey Hat Company has been milliner to the stars for 85 years. Wear a Bailey Wynn to the Sonoma International Film Festival and fit right in. $65 at Coppola Winery or baileyhats.com.
Movie in a bottle
Coppola famously lost $25 million on One from the Heart, but you can help him recover a few bucks with this DVD of the ill-fated flick, cleverly hidden in the base of a three-liter bottle of 2004 Dry Creek Valley Syrah. $175 at the winery, while they last.
3-D care package
Headed to a 3-D afternoon? Grab a Big Hunk, some Jujubes or some Jujyfruits and a pair of 3-D glasses, and you’ve got everything you need, except popcorn. (below) The glasses are $3, the candy is $1.50 a box. All at Tiddle E.Winks, 115 East Napa Street, Sonoma. Tiddleewinks.com, or 707.93-WOWEE.
Politically correct popcorn
See enough movies, eat enough popcorn and maybe you’ll save a tree (or at least a bush) with this reusable, recyclable, plastic popcorn bag/box. $1.50 at Tiddle E. Winks.
For the true aficionado

But can he make good wine?
Francis Ford Coppola makes iconic movies and gourmet meals. But can he make good wine? The answer is in this luscious bottle of Director’s Cut Cinema, a meritage blend of 48 percent zinfandel, 47 percent cabernet and 5 percent petite syrah. Exquisite. $32 at the winery.
