As the days finally lengthen and the rain subsides in Napa wine country, we are eager to welcome you back to the winery for an exciting season full of new hospitality spaces, new tasting experiences, and new wines.
The Miller House is Open
After four years in the making, Frank Family welcomes a new hospitality space, The Miller House, located behind our yellow Craftsman House overlooking sprawling vineyard and mountain views. The Miller House is the vision of Founder, Leslie Miller Frank, who married Rich on the exact site where the new structure now stands. Leslie was inspired to create a space to host the winery’s most elevated and exclusive experiences and events and she enlisted renowned architect Howard J. Backen of Backen & Backen Architecture and Robin Beck of Hawkins Interiors to bring her vision to life. Book your Miller House Elevated Experience here.
Savory Macaron Flights are Here
Frank Family has also introduced a new enhancement to our Estate Tasting and Craftsman House Tasting – savory macaron flights. We have partnered with Napa Valley pastry chefs, Madeleine’s Macarons to offer a one-of-a-kind wine and food pairing. Indulge in a flight of savory French macarons ranging in flavors from bacon wrapped fig and thyme and hazelnut to beet and goat cheese while sipping on Frank Family’s incredibly approachable and food-friendly wines. Macaron flights can be added on to your tasting experience while booking through Tock here.
The Return of Picnic Weather
Picnic season is back in Napa Valley and coincidentally, April 23 is National Picnic Day! We welcome you back to the winery to enjoy our Picnic & Bottle Service experience which allows you to choose from a selection of Frank Family’s estate-driven wines to pair with your own picnic provisions from home. Under the shade of century-old elm trees, relax at your private picnic table with Frank Family’s lush park-like setting as your backdrop. This experience can be reserved as an add-on to any tasting experience or reserved on its own with the purchase of wine. We are pleased to offer our club members complimentary picnic reservations. Reservations can be made here.
The Rare Release of Lewis Vineyard Pinot Noir
Grown on our estate Lewis Vineyard’s cool climate, clay loam soils, our Reserve Pinot Noir greets you with bright aromatics of red and black cherry, blueberry, and savory spices. The supple palate features flavors of fresh strawberry leading to a lengthy mouthwatering finish. Given the increasing demand for this wine, the Lewis Vineyard Pinot Noir is typically only reserved for Frank Family wine club members. This is a rare occasion in which we are able to share this new release with all our friends and fans so don’t delay to book your next visit to taste this wine at the winery or order online here.
The Debut of the Third Vintage of Leslie Rosé
Nothing says “hello spring” quite like the anticipated yearly release of Frank Family’s light and refreshing Leslie Rosé. Now in its third vintage, this elegant wine is named for Founder Leslie Frank and her love for family, friends, and summer. Crafted from the finest Pinot Noir from the best vineyards in Carneros, this wine perfectly captures the beauty of this cool-climate region with delicate layers of white peach and wild strawberry, accompanied by bright and balancing acidity. This wine is available to taste daily at the Frank Family tasting room and is available to order online here.
