Francis Ford Coppola Winery just launched a second sparkling wine to its Sofia label. Sofia Brut Rosé is perfect for summer and comes available in bottles and the mini 187 ml cans with straws. To celebrate the launch of its new Brut Rosé, named in honor of the award-winning director herself, during Food and Wine Aspen, the winery paired up with top Aspen Salon Tullio to pamper guests with blowouts, manicures, and makeup, preparing us girls for the selfie-filled weekend ahead.


The event, named Minis and Manis was the perfect mid-day treat and the best way to kick off Food and wine weekend. Gorgeous flower arrangements, friendly and accommodating staff and delicious treats from local restaurant Mawa’s Kitchen that included mini lobster rolls and Truffle-parmesan mushroom crostini, the mood for pampering and indulgence was set.

We decided to get a manicure to ensure our wine tasting hands would be in top notch appearance, matching the fabulous wines we would encounter throughout the weekend. The manicurist carried on swiftly with quick breaks accommodating our refills on sparkling Sofia Brut Rosé or the fruity Sofia Blanc de Blancs, which kept going during the service. After a while, we walked out with a sample of Sofia’s favorite lip balm created in partnership with Olio E Osso and a lovely mani that was chip-free all weekend long.


By far one of our favorite events during Food and Wine Aspen weekend, we invite you to try these delicious wines which you can buy from their website:
