Frank Family Vineyards

Nestled in the southern outskirts of Calistoga in the renowned Napa Valley, Frank Family Vineyards was founded in 1992 by former Disney Studios president Rich Frank. First constructed as the Historic Larkmead Winery in 1884, the stone building on property is the third oldest in Napa. Today, Frank Family Vineyards owns over 380 acres of the finest vineyards across the best AVA's within the Valley, and has long upheld its reputation for having the friendliest hospitality in Napa. The winery, among other accolades to its name, has been named Bay Area A-List's "Best Napa Winery" for an unprecedented 8 years in a row.

There is a family atmosphere in all that goes on at Frank Family; a feeling that comes from the history and purpose. Together with his wife Leslie, Rich Frank oversees everything from vineyard management to sales and marketing, all for their profound love of wine. Winemaker and General Manager Todd Graff shares this sentiment, and is behind Frank Family's distinctive, world-class Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Todd honed his craft and grew his technical skills while working in many of the world's most highly-regarded wine regions; including Germany, France, and Australia. Today, his forethought and intuition are his artistry, and his deep understanding every element of wine from terroir to flavor profiles sometimes feel like magic.

Frank Family Vineyards has a diverse portfolio of wine; but all are rooted in expressive quality. We offer specialty wine tastings with our Director of DTC Sales and Hospitality Liam Gearity. We also offer curated wine and food pairings with our top-tier, most exclusive wines, paired with cheese and charcuterie from distinguished Napa Valley chef Michael Chiarello's café and market, Ottimo. Your tasting will take place in a private, indoor lounge in our recently renovated tasting room.

It is our hope that your time with us at Frank Family creates fond memories that last a lifetime.
