About Frank Family Vineyards

Frank Family Vineyards Winery at the Historic Original Stone Winery in Napa Valley.

Read More

With over 380 acres of vineyards in Napa Valley and one of the most popular tasting rooms and word-of-mouth followings, Frank Family Vineyards is a must-stop for any wine lover. Former President of Disney Studios Rich Frank founded the winery in 1992 after purchasing a home in Rutherford, which would become his first estate vineyard, Winston Hill--also where he later proposed to his wife and fellow proprietor, Leslie Frank. Today, owners Rich and Leslie oversee all operations at the winery and have continued to expand and enhance the Frank Family Vineyards experience. Frank Family produces premium Cabernet Sauvginons, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Sangiovese, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, California Sparkling Wine, a late harvest Chardonnay and Port.

Always jovial and often brimming with laughter, guests that visit the tasting room often find the experience refreshing in that the only focus at Frank Family Vineyards is wine and fun. The tasting room is consistently recognized by top national publications, wine tasters and aficionados across the board as one of the best in the country. First constructed as the Larkmead Winery in 1884, the historic stone building on property was refinished with native sandstone from the nearby hills in 1906. Considered one of the finest structures in the Napa Valley, the massive stone edifice appears on the National Register of Historical Places and is listed as a Point of Historical Interest in the state of California. Guests of the tasting room are welcome to picnic under the property's stately elm trees.

Frank Family’s wine club, the Founder’s Society, offers access to reserve wines, VIP tastings at the winery, along with annual events such as its ever-popular lobster feed.

Winemaker Todd Graff has a myriad of estate vineyards with which to craft his blockbuster wines.

Frank Family Vineyards was a wonderful experience. The wine itself was worth the trip but our guide was very friendly and informative as well. The tasting room’s atmosphere was okay. There weren’t many people around (maybe that’s why the energy was low- and to be fair - some like it quiet) and the vibe was a little stiff but, it most certainly did not keep us from having a smashing time!

We visited your winery for my birthday and had a wonderful experience. The tastings were great but the best part was the time we spent with Mike and the history of the family. After our tasting we were sitting outside and the Rich Frank came up to us and introduced himself and asked how our experience was. I love the personal touch of this winery. I was extremely impressed. thanks James

From the moment you walk up to Frank Family winery you can tell it is something special. They treated us like family. After a quick tour of the newly remodeled tasting facility we sat down to an extensive tasting. It is clear, very quickly, that Rich and Leslie Frank have surrounded themselves with the best and brightest in the wine arena to help showcase some of the most wonderful wines around.

The property is absolutely beautiful!!The warm & welcoming environment quickly dissipated as there were about 4 children on the floor in front of the fireplace with lots of toys,playing very loudly while their parents wine tasted.We are paying a hefty tasting fee to taste the wines, hear stories and relax. This could not be done at the winery, as the host had to yell over the children.Thumbs down!

Mike was our host, and he quickly made everyone comfortable, recognizing the wide spectrum of wine expertise and pallets. Rich also stopped in to see how everyone was doing and even shared some personal stories. It was a truly memorable experience that my mother-in-law hasn’t stopped sharing. Thank you!
