About the winery:
In the 1800s, American Pioneer Winegrowers was the first company to translate classic American stories into original labels. Francis Ford Coppola preserves this tradition and translates the legend of the settler's infant Virginia Dare in 4 colourful themed wines. The first colonists settled in 1587 in North Carolina. Virginia Dare was born as the first child of English parentage in the New World. But times were hard and the colonists needed help from England. When help finally arrived after 3 years, the colony was lost without a trace and remained a mystery forever.
