This estate was founded in 1879 by Gustave Niebaum, a Finnish sea captain, in Rutherford, Napa Valley. Though it had suffered at one point from a chequered history, when Niebaum’s grandnephew, John Daniel, Jr. inherited the chateau and vineyards in the 1940s, Inglenook reclaimed its reputation of producing very fine wines that earned international acclaim. In 1975, Francis and Eleanor Coppola acquired a portion of the acreage under vines, and through patient resolve, eventually reunited the property in 1995 by purchasing the totality of the estate. Having spent forty years reuniting the original vineyards and carried out major renovation work, the Coppolas finally acquired in 2011 Inglenook’s name and trademark. With the ambition of elevating Inglenook wines and placing them among the finest Californian references, Philippe Bascaules, formerly estate director of Château Margaux, was hired in 2011 as managing director and winemaker. When Bascaules returned as managing director of Château Margaux in 2017 after Paul Pontallier’s untimely death, Inglenook announced that he will remain director of winemaking for Inglenook as part of a unique arrangement.
