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.

Large format style tasting. You stand at a counter for half an hour with other people tasting a few wines with some basic tasting notes from the host. This is not the type of tasting I prefer. The wines are decent, but not my style. If you go, ask to taste the Winston Hill, it iseems excellent.

First, the receptionist was very friendly and helpful-we had a 10 month old. Second, the owner, Mr. Frank, came by and chatted for 2-3 minutes. Very friendly and gracious. How often do you see that in a big Napa winery? Our" pourer" was extremely knowledgeable. I know wine fairly well; he knew more. Finally, Frank Family winery does a very good job of keeping the feeling of being uncrowded.

They have the old building, the red barn....benches, patio tables. It was cute. The host wasnt rude, but wasnt welcoming either. 1130am reservation, but didnt get to the tasting room until 12pm and grouped with a 4 person party. The man pouring seemed completely disinterested. Maybe its me and my friends, but we will stick to other locations instead. Wine was ok, nothing special. Too commercial.

My wife and I visited Frank Family for the 2nd time. We can't say enough about how AMAZING our experience was. Antonio was EXTRAORDINARY. He knew we were coming and his explanations and attention to detail was exceptional. This is by far, our most favorite small production vineyard and the quality of their wines speaks for itself. Their Zins = our most favorite but the newest Chard took 2nd!

I was very unimpressed by our welcome and overall experience at Frank Family Vineyards. It was a very cold day outside and the tasting room was not full, and even after mentioning it was cold out the hostess told us to wait outside until they were ready for us. Then the person administering the tasting was not very knowledgeable. I do not think this tasting was worth the $40.

We have been to over 150 wineries over the years and this was one of the worst. Ironic, as we had high expectations given their accolades as "#1 Napa winery" over the last 4 years. Felt like a production line service, from start to finish. Server was dialing it in, speaking and pouring as quickly as she could, and not appreciating questions. None of the 3 of us enjoyed any of the wines. Skip it!

We had an outstanding experience with Liam. We live locally and brought very wine savvy guests from NJ as well as our adult children. It was a miserable rainy day and the main tasting rooms are being updated. Nothing could detract from the experience. We sat and tasted many wines, learned things and got some new perspectives. All in all, great place, great people, great 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.
