A major reason Frank Family Vineyards is famous for its distinctly friendly and approachable atmosphere is because of Dennis Zablosky. Over the past 20 years, the Napa native, touted a “wine legend” by Robert Mondavi and considered one of Napa’s best-known personalities, has personally ensured that every visitor to the winery has the best experience possible.
Dennis, who holds a marketing degree from the College of San Mateo, knows that his winery career is anchored in guest service. Known for his unforgettable presence, this amiable director has the ability to make everyone feel at home. Prior to joining the historic winery, he owned a small chain of Bay Area wine and food shops called International Gourmet. He has built the winery’s reputation as a “full-service” operation by personally becoming the unofficial concierge of each guest.
His role, he explains, includes that of manager, travel agent, dinner reservationist and wine connoisseur. The daily duties include greeting guests, giving tours, carrying wine to cars and giving everyone a flavorful taste of Frank Family Vineyards. “I want visitors’ memories of the winery to be as much about their experience here as the wines they taste.”
With a passion for wine, food, people and a commitment to ensuring the winery offers everyone “the friendly, old-fashioned Napa experience the way it used to be,” it’s no surprise Dennis receives stacks of letters and photos from thankful guests. “We try to have fun, fun, fun,” he says. And 20 years later, Dennis, the winery guests and the close-knit Frank Family staff still do just that.
