ABOUT COPAIN WINERY: “Perched on a hillside, overlooking the bucolic Russian River Valley, Copain embodies the philosophy that wine enhances life’s most joyous occasions, and is an experience best shared with friends and family. “Copain” means “friend” or “buddy” in Frenc. These wines have been long inspired by France’s Rhone Valley wine region resulting in Copain’s signature style of restrained, elegant, and food friendly wines.”
