Read More

With over 200 acres vineyards in Napa Valley and the most popular tasting rooms and word-of-mouth followings, Frank Family Vineyards is a must-stop for any wine lover. Former Disney Studios President Rich Frank, along with Connie Frank, founded the winery in 1992 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. The massive stone edifice is considered one of the finest structures in the Napa Valley; it 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.

Great environment for tasting! They've got a knowledgeable, friendly staff, some fabulous sparkling wines and chardonnays, and seated tastings! Tip: Be sure to make a reservation. Their wines are great and they're in Napa which means they're usually pretty busy. Some wineries get impersonal as they grow, Frank Family has not. A great stop in beautiful Napa Valley!

We were escorted to a table and the most comfortable chairs in the world for our tasting. Mike was our host. He was intimately familiar with the history of Frank Family and with the tasting notes of each of the wines. He brought out additional wines based on what we said we liked, which was great. The wines ranged from a red "champagne" to a hearty, long-cellaring cabernet sauvignon. Great visit.

Not so hot. Understand their tasting room was being updated and tasting was in a cramped space. But, although the tasting ambassador was very knowledgeable, there just wasn't the ambiance we expected. Certainly much different from the last time we visited the Frank Family winery. It now seems very corporate and you are in and then your time is up. Next! We won't go back.

The wines were very good but Liem really took our experience to the next level and that was what made it our favorite stop.

The grounds were so beautiful and the tasting experience was fantastic. Most importantly the wine was AMAZING. It was one of the least expensive tastings we did but also the best! We can't wait to go back.

Upon arriving we were told that they were running a little behind and our host would be ready in 5 or 10 minutes. Over the course of the next 35 minutes, standing on their porch, we were told the same thing twice more. Given a tight schedule on the day, with appointments at other wineries, this was inconsiderate. We communicated that we had another appointment after theirs, and felt misled.

Venue was nice, but a little disappointed in general, nothing breathtaking. Our host was okay, a bit of a know-it-all wine snob. Very little apparel to offer and no wine glasses for sale?! Still love their wine and will always be a fan, but most likely will not bother to revisit on my next trip to Napa. They don't reimburse your wine tasting fee when you become a club member either.
