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.

The place is great. The new back porch addition is inviting. The staff and our host are attentive and down to earth people. Ohh..and most importantly, their wines are top notch. Knowing the business and having a palate for exceptional wines, they are one of my favorites for their Cabarnet. Now, I will add their Zin as one of my favorites too. Unpretentious winery, just great wines!

The product is great but our host was cold and indifferent. This has clearly become a place crawling with Tourists. Buy a bottle but the tour and tasting just aren't worth it. The staff could not have cared less regardless of the fact that we were purchasing wine and wanted education around their product.

A special shout out to Antonio and Marco, always there to make us feel especially welcome over the years. And Melinda and Sal, welcome to the family :)

Tasting with John was amazing. We were lucky to have one-on-one attention for the majority of our tasting which was really nice. If there had been more people there, the experience would have definitely been different. We picnicked on the grounds, which was really nice. If it would have been a warmer day, would have definitely taken more advantage of the porch areas.

She's a wealth of knowledge both of wine and the community. She's got a great sense of humor and made the whole experience FUN.
