Soquel, Calif.—Women For WineSense is pleased to announce a “conversation with Eleanor Coppola” during their Grand Event celebration weekend. Coppola, a well-known American artist, filmmaker and writer, will serve as a guest speaker during the group’s Friday night wine dinner at The Vintners Resort during the Grand Event. 

“We’re excited to have Eleanor Coppola as a guest speaker at our wine dinner,” said Tracy Lynne Parker, Grand Event Director. “She’ll be there to talk about her experiences as a female in the film industry, and discussing her feature film, Paris Can Wait.”

Eleanor Coppola is an accomplished artist and filmmaker. She was born in Southern California and attended UCLA where she received a B.A. in art. While living in the Philippines during the making of Apocalypse Now, she shot the documentary footage for the critically acclaimed, Emmy award-winning film, Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse. She has since made behind-the-scenes documentaries on seven films directed by her family. She is also actively involved in the Coppola family wine companies in Napa, and her proprietary wine, Eleanor, a red Bordeaux Rhone blend, has received a 97 point score and won numerous awards.
