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.

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!

My wife and I are members, and we brought my mother-in-law and family for a birthday treat. 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!

This was the first Napa Valley winery my girlfriend and I have ever visited and it was a tremendous start to a memorable two days. The private table on the spacious and breezy porch was perfect, our server was friendly and knowledgeable (and so was his adorable dog, Brix!), and the wine was the best we had in our brief visit to Napa. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!

Well we were running a bit late for our reservation due to the traffic getting out of the bay area. I called ahead and let them know we would be late. When we arrived, we were cordially greeted and after a brief wait, escorted inside for our wine tasting. I think we may have had a better experience if we had opted to wine taste outside, but the Campfire had just begun that day and it was hazy.

Our wine consultant was fantastic--- volunteered a lot of information / very knowledgeable. Appreciated that he shared a splash of Patriarch esp as I was interested and ultimately purchased a Winston (so let's say I was certainly 'in the market'). There should be a waiver of the annoying $40 tasting fee if one purchases a certain amount of wine-- so won't be running back for a while.
