Q: What does your day-to-day job look like?

Q: What is your favorite Frank Family wine?

A: The club-exclusive Sangiacomo Chardonnay because it’s a light, crisp white that can be savored any time of the year. The Rouge Sparkling Wine is a favorite among my mom and aunt.

Q: Giving back to the community is important to our winery. Is there a specific charity that is special to you?

Q: When you are not working, where can we find you?

A: Most Sundays you can find me at one of the many golf courses in Napa Valley. If not there, you’ll find me online playing games with my friends, or blue water angling with my dad.
