The new restaurant with 66 interior seats and patio dining honors the cultural heritage of the Native American Pamunkey tribe

The Virginia Dare Winery opened in 1835 and is home to the “Mother Vine,” a 400-year-old grapevine species.

American film director Francis Coppola unveiled his new restaurant, Werowocomoco, located in the Virginia Dare Winery in Geyserville, California. Inspiration for the restaurant came from the winery itself, which was one of the first in the U.S., according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Through Coppola’s research, he discovered that the winery’s named traced back to the first English child born in the New World in a Virginia Colony. Coppola chose the seventeenth century Algonquin settlement in Virginia — Werowocomoco — as the name for his restaurant.

“Virginia Dare Winery highlights the genesis of American winemaking, so it makes sense that our new restaurant would celebrate our country’s indigenous foods,” Coppola said in a press release to Wine Business. “With Werowocomoco, my goal is to present a menu inspired by the culinary traditions of the earliest inhabitants of North America.”

The restaurant will feature “Native American ambience and food” in order to “highlight ingredients of America as it once had been.” The menu will include food ranging from bison ribs with a berry barbecue sauce to river-harvested wild rice with cranberries. Over several years, Coppola sought out to taste authentic Native American food and shared meals on reservations with families and locals.

Coppola even received a personal blessing from the chief Powhatan, an Algonquian political and spiritual leader who oversaw several tribes, including the Pamunkey tribe. Coppola was given permission to borrow the Native American name and honor the Pamunkey tribe and its history.

In addition, the Virginia Dare Winery will donate 5 percent of its pretax profits to America’s Native People.


Coppola speaks of return to film-making

Francis Ford Coppola will follow-up his directorial return “Youth Without Youth” with a vaguely autobiographical film, the director said.

Francis Ford Coppola will follow-up his directorial return “Youth Without Youth” with a vaguely autobiographical film, the director said.

Coppola, who is putting the final touches on “Youth Without Youth”, his first film in a decade, plans to next produce and direct “Tetro”.

The film will follow the rivalries born out of creative differences passed down through generations of an artistic Italian immigrant family not unlike Coppola’s.

Set in Argentina (not Coppola’s native New York), “Tetro” fictionalises what Coppola calls his “very unusual family”, which has been populated by artists since his father’s generation.

“I think at this age, I’m more disposed to look at my life in terms of dramatic material,” the 67-year-old filmmaker said from his home in Napa Valley, California.

“Maybe I’m less frightened or more confident about writing something that is fiction even though it has its basis in real things that I’ve seen and felt. Maybe it won’t offend anybody, I hope.”

Coppola remembers wasted time spent where family members were not speaking for years – but he happily says that in his family now: “Everybody is talking.”

Coppola’s announcement perhaps most signified that the director is now clearly embarking on a new active period in his career after a dormant decade following 1997’s “The Rainmaker”.

The change was partly sparked by Coppola’s abandonment of his long-planned futuristic epic “Megalopolis”, which he has shelved in place of smaller, more personal films.

“Youth Without Youth”, starring Tim Roth, was filmed in Romania and is due out in the second half of 2007. The experience, Coppola says, reinvigorated him.

“It’s a very big change of the type of career that I had before. I always wanted to be a filmmaker who wrote his own original material,” he says, recalling his earlier movies “The Conversation” (1974) and “The Rain People” (1969).

Coppola now hopes to write and direct films at the pace of Woody Allen - something he can finance partly because of the success of his wine business.

“I view this as the career I always wished I could have,” Coppola says. “Now, I’m in a place where I can be my own patron.”

“Tetro” will star Matt Dillon, Coppola’s third film with the actor, the other two being 1983’s back-to-back “The Outsiders” and “Rumble Fish”. Production is scheduled to begin in Buenos Aires late this year.
