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 grounds were beautiful, and the back porch seating comfortable. Our server was polite and attentive but not personal or informative...may be because it was the end of the day. With smaller family wineries, hearing the background story is nice. None of the tastes were a big hit.

We had an unbelievable experience at Frank Family. We did a private reserve tasting in the Sun Room. It was gorgeous and overlooked the vines that surround this historic property. Liam hosted our event. He was beyond pleasurable, imparted knowledge regarding the pairings and the wines that was easy to understand & made perfect sense. This is the only way we will ever taste here in the future!!!

This was our third trip to Frank Family Vineyards. To say it was one of our favorites is an understatement. Last year our hostess told us an unforgettable quote "The best thing to pair Frank Family wines with is your lips!" I did not think we could top last year but they did. We had upgraded our pairing to a member's only tasting. It was delightful. We loved our host and are glad we went.

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
