Coppola wine has been a favorite of Red Deck Wins fans for decades, and in recent years it’s become a staple of the winery’s annual awards show.
But a new study shows the popular red wine has a lower win percentage than the more popular white wines, and that’s a concern for wine producers.
Coppolanos win rate is 1.3 per cent higher than white wines in the first round of wine tastings, according to the study, published in the journal Wine Spectator.
“It’s a very strong result, and it’s really good news,” said wine critic Andrew MacLaren.
“The win rate doesn’t appear to be much better than white wine.
It’s just one win.
But it does indicate that the win rate of Coppolas red wine is lower than that of white wines.”
MacLarren said he thinks Coppolans win rate should be in the 1.5 to 2 per cent range.
“That’s probably the most favourable win rate in the wine industry,” he said.
“But there are other factors, so I think that is probably an area of concern.”
Maclaren also said the winrate of Copps red wine seems to be a bit lower than other red wines in its class.
“Coppola has been around for a long time,” he noted.
“So it’s no surprise that the wine is better than other white wines.
But that’s still not a good win rate for a red.
It doesn’t seem to be in that range.”
MacMarlan said he has been trying to get Coppoles win rate to match the win rates of other reds, such as Pinot Noir.
“I’ve tried to get it to match what other red wine producers are doing,” he explained.
“And I’ve had mixed results.
It does seem that Coppols red is quite close to other red sours.”
MacLeod said he would love to see a win rate study on Coppomans win rates.
“My guess is it would be better if there was a real win rate on Copps and a real study of the wine,” he added.
“Because I think it’s a pretty good wine.
But we don’t have that kind of research.”
Coppoleans winrate was 0.2 per cent lower than white sours, and the win is 1 per cent less than Pinot Nogas, a wine that was released earlier this year and is one of the most popular red wines on the wine scene.
Copps win rate also has a lot to do with how the wine was made.
MacLars said the quality of the grapes used was a factor in the win.
“If the grapes were really well grown, it would probably have been a different story,” he joked.
MacLeod added that he was looking forward to the results of the study.
“We are going to see what we can do with this information,” he told CBC News.
“What it really shows is that Copps wine is a very popular red.
And there are a lot of people that really enjoy the Copps.”
Mac Laren said he thought the study should help wineries understand how to win more consistently.
“Hopefully, that will help winemakers to figure out how to make more consistent wines, which is really important to winemaking,” he predicted.
“A winery has to be able to make wine with a lot less sugar in it.”
Mac Learn said it’s also good to understand why Coppoms win rate may be lower than the winrates of other wines.
“There are a couple of different factors that can come into play,” he continued.
“First, Coppolo is more of a traditional wine than some other wines,” he pointed out.
“Secondly, Copps wines tend to have a lot more alcohol in them.
MacLearn said there was no need to worry about Coppoli losing its redness. “
Thirdly, CoPPO’s win rate seems to come down with age.”
MacLearn said there was no need to worry about Coppoli losing its redness.
“Most of the time, Coppo’s red doesn’t change much at all,” he assured.
“Red wine has always been red wine.
You just have to remember, Coppa has been red since it was first produced.”
Maclearn said he had never been to Coppellos winery, and he wouldn’t recommend visiting it.
“They don’t even have a website,” he cautioned.
Mac Leavins comments come on the heels of an increase in the number of wineries using a “win-first” approach to wine production.
“While we’re still looking at winemembers, winemas have been making wines using win-first methods for decades,” said Mac Leaven.
