Growing up in Napa Valley, it was only natural that Carlos started taking interest in wine. The science behind the bottle and the wine process fascinated him. His growing interest in wine along with the fact that many of his cousins worked in the tasting room at Frank Family Vineyards, is what initially encouraged him to leave the hospitality industry for the wine industry. Two and a half years later, Carlos has worked his way up from Wine Educator to our recently appointed Wine Club Coordinator. Carlos is the one who sends new member welcome letters, assists current members with questions, and most importantly, he ensures all members are well taken care of.

Welcoming, Family, and Honest
3. What is your favorite Frank Family wine to enjoy this Fall?
It’s most definitely our newest wine, the RHF Cabernet Sauvignon. I would pair this wine with a nice medium rare ribeye.
4. What is the best part about living in Napa Valley?
I’ve lived in Calistoga all my life and there’s nothing like it anywhere else in the world. The best part are the views and peacefulness that Napa Valley’s small towns provide.
5. What do you like to do when you’re not working?
In my spare time, I like to play sports – anything from soccer, golf, basketball, tennis, bowling, you name it. Of course, a glass of wine with friends is always necessary to recover!
