Tatiana Copeland is the daughter of Russian emigrants. Her mother was of the ancient Russian noble family Satin, through which she is related (grandniece) to the composer Sergei Rachmaninov. And her father was a highly-educated engineer whose family traced back to a well-known purveyor of French Champagnes to the Imperial Court.
So perhaps is not surprising that Copeland maintains a keen interest in the nexus of Russia, wine, and music. A graduate of UCLA, she received her MBA from UC Berkeley, spent her career working in international business, and is very active in philanthropy, the arts, and wine. She and her husband, Gerret Copeland, own Bouchaine Vineyards, in Carneros, California.
