Welcome to Unita Blends, an offering from the Becker Vineyards and Francis Ford Coppola Winery collaboration.

Our favorite day of any week is when an old friend stops by, pours a glass of wine and starts the conversation with “I have this idea…” So, do yourself a favor and uncork this wine, pour a glass and see what dreams may come. We are sure inspiration as bold and bright as this wine will follow. 

An equal blend from the rolling hills of Sonoma County and big plains of Texas, this wine is what happens when friends work together. Clove and nutmeg spices open to vanilla and pepper, followed by plum and black currant…this wine continues to open, offering a wonderful floral and spice component perfume, finishing with lingering red fruit and subtle hints of chocolate and coffee. Here we have a beautiful union between West Coast and South West. 

Aromatics: Rich chocolate coffee, earthy hints and Herbs de Provence

On the Palate: Coffee with hints of chocolate, followed by dried raspberry, ripe plums, currant and brown spice, full tannins

When I first got into wines nearly 20 years ago, there's wasn't a Coppola I didn't like. Recently, after moving back to Texas about three years ago, I haven't tasted a Becker I didn't like. So, as you can imagine, this surprising find was a dream come true. And it certainly does not disappoint! I look forward to visiting Becker Vineyards one day!

Huge Becker and Coppola fan. Bought a case to enjoy over time. Really appreciate the effort in making a collaboration like this happen. Kudos to both wineries for caring enough to create something special for their fans. A true rarity these days.
