We chose to do the reserve wine tasting, and although I've had their chardonnay from a local wine store here in NJ and loved it I wasn't anticipating much. Thought it would be nice. Was I pleasantly surprised! Every wine was not just good, but outstanding. That never happens. Actually joined the club.....that never happens either. Visited 14 wineries this... More

Loved our stop at Frank Family Vineyards. Lovely vineyard and winery. Still small enough to enjoy. Nice tasting building with multiple private tasting rooms (a nice touch). What we liked the best was... the wines. The wines. Driving around Napa checking out wineries is mostly about finding one or two good wines among a bunch offered at each winery. And... More

Good Wines, Knowledgeable staff. I opted for a Chardonnay flight rather than what was on the menu of the day and it was awesome. The 2009 Late Harvest Chardonnay was incredible and quite a surprise. The server was personable and offered some interesting tidbits on the wines.

We had a great wine tasting with Pam. She is so relaxed and made everyone in the room comfortable and even though it was a busy Saturday morning, she took her time with us and gave us the full experience. Every wine we tasted was wonderful especially the sparkling rose which we will buy for Christmas parties. She shared fun... More

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
