Frank Family was a lovely winery to stop at at for 30mins - 1hr and enjoy a tasting. We didn't even know when we booked our tasting, but guests of the Wine Country Inn can do the premium tasting for free. Frank Family had some great wines, and they were particularly generous in letting you sample items not on the... More

This winery is one of my favorites in the Napa Valley. Not only do the have great wines, but the winery is welcoming and not so crowded. There are pic-nic tables so you can buy a bottle of their wine or champagne and enjoy the lovely grounds. Try their Chardonnay. It is one of the best!

We have visited the winery twice and will revisit when we return to Napa Valley. The wine tasting was fun and informative. Not to mention, the superb wines! Zin, must have Zin! The Red Zinfandel at Frank Family unbelievably excellent. Can't wait to go back!!

I have friends who were married at this winery so they love it. We came here with 5 couples and had the tasting with Dennis who is a NAPA legend. He is very funny, and very blunt. He is a king of the one liners and since we are all about having fun, we enjoyed it tremendously. The wines are... More

During our lunch in St Helena we decided to ask the Locals where we could find good Vineyards off the beaten paths. Nearly everyone insisted that we try the Frank Family Vineyards while they gave advice about the local Vineyards. When we arrived at the Frank Family Vineyard we were pleasantly surprised at how beautiful the place was. By the... More

Our experience here was positive overall. The environment is warm and our pourer was friendly though perhaps not as chatty as some I have encountered. I thought the fees were a bit steep for the pours that we got though we did get to try an off the list wine which was neat. Worth a stop if you are in... More

Our local wine merchant recommended this particular winery otherwise we might not have found it. I had no idea who Rich Frank was - I DO NOW! His passion and success in the film and television industry translated beautifully into the wine making business. If you have an extra $10, do the premium tasting - you won't regret it. The... More

We went and did a tasting here and it was fine, nothing great. We like Frank Family so I would say it is just a typical upscale tasting. The service was good and we enjoyed the wine but we like the more private smaller tastings. I would have no problem recommending it but I would never think it would be... More

If you've never been to a wine tasting in Napa before, you should start here. Warm, friendly environment. The atmosphere is a little dated, but the staff are exceptional. I am not so interested in television, but cable TV buffs would like some of the history here. Please do the higher end tasting, the reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford does not... More

We stopped by this winery on the recommendation of a host at Madrigal winery. We were thrilled! The friendliness and hospitality of ALL the staff was exceptional and we were delighted with the Chardonnay and the Rouge Sparkling Wine. The setting is beautiful...quiet, serene, and peaceful. It was the perfect place for us to enjoy a quiet picnic with delicious... More
