Vlad The Impaler Banner

Vlad the Impaler Banner

Napa Valley is such a kick to explore when I can find the time. Director Francis Ford Coppola bought the Inglenook winery years ago, renaming it Niebaum-Coppola and then Rubicon. Before it became a private fee entrance to even step foot on the estate, I had spent some time wandering the grounds.

Francis had brought some of his movie memorabilia to the place and made the second floor kind of cozy to explore. I am interested in history and this man has some intriguing movies which depict historical moments in our culture.

On one of the stone walls was a flag with the caption, “Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Vlad the Impaler Banner, flown during battle in 1462 as the Romanians fought the Turks”.
