Movie guru-turned-wine maker Francis Ford Coppola is toasting his daughter's LOST IN TRANSLATION successes with a new drink named after her.

Sofia Coppola has already picked up a slew of awards for her directorial skills on the hit film, starring Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson, and she's hotly tipped to land an OSCAR nomination later this month (JAN04).

If she does, she'll be able to toast her first ACADEMY AWARD nod with a bottle of her father's SOFIA BLANC DE BLANCS CALIFORNIA SPARKLING WINE.

Regular wine lovers will have to wait until the spring (04) to sample Coppola's new 2003 vintage.
