We all know Francis Ford Coppolla to be one of the greatest film directors of all time.

“Godfather 2”, anyone?

But apart from movies, his other real passion is wines.

In fact, this passion is mainly reserved for his own Francis Ford Coppolla Wineries – especially “Archimedes” and his Rubicon Estate – which Coppolla has been, literally, cultivating for years.

Francis Ford Coppolla visits Hong Kong for Wine Future HK ’11, an event taking place between November 6-8 at Asia World Expo.

Other vinophiles attending will include Robert Parker, Jancis Robinson, James Sucking and Gary Vaynerchuk.

We also understand that Mr Coppolla will also be visiting a number of wineries in China to see the quality of these wines and if they might be suitable to American palates.
