We met a lovely couple in Napa who told us that we had to visit their all time favorite winery, Frank Family Vineyards...so we stopped by for a tasting. They were nothing special, and we were pretty disappointed that we had taken time away from other favorite wineries in the area. I would not recommend this winery...to many other better... More

We've been going here for many many years. Even if just up for a day we have to stop and visit. If you like red, white, sparkling or port this is your place. We do annual lobster boil and have a blast. After having 20 plus clubs over the years, this and one other are the constants Must do.

Best vineyard we visited. Staff was over-the-top friendly and attentive. You can spend time tasting in the rooms provided or take your bottle out to the picnic tables and relax in a quiet, casual setting.

The Frank Family Vineyard tasting room is fantastic. It is no wonder they have won Napa Valley tasting room awards for the past several years. The staff were all very pleasant and knowledgable. We had enjoyed their normal retail offerings for several years. Their reserve selections take that to a higher level. We were impressed with their Chardonnay. Considering we... More

$20 tasting fee, $30 reserve tasting. Cannot apply any of it to a purchase. The pours were generous on my tasting, but for these prices, why not just go to a wine bar? I liked the Pinot best. Nice grounds, but not spectacular. They have picnic tables.

We stopped by the vineyard to inquire about a visit later in the week and ended up having one of the best experiences of our entire trip. Mike was very knowledgeable and a great story teller. We enjoyed and recommend everything here including the entire staff and the gardens.

We visited several wineries while in Napa. Frank Family is a good place to visit and had a good assortment of wines. A place not so well known is a small winery called Aonair which is a more relaxed winery -- no tasting fee there but a reservation required. Both were excellent

A little off the beaten track is this special winery that goes out of its way to cater to their clientele. In a renovated house, we enjoyed our tasting experience with an all around great staff. The wines here are outstanding as well as the mini museum of the founder-A Disney executive. This is a must visit as a contrast... More
