Frank Family Named Best Winery and More in the Best of Napa County Awards

Frank Family Vineyards is thrilled to be awarded Best Overall Winery, Best Chardonnay, Best Sparkling Wine and Best Winemaker by The Press Democrat’s first annual Best of Napa County awards. Celebrating our 30th anniversary this year, the awards arrive at an exciting time for our winery as we recently opened The Miller House, a new hospitality space created as a venue for elevated wine and food experiences. Adding to the luster, these accolades come on the heels of the career luminary recognition of Frank Family Founder Rich Frank as a Wine Star at the Wine Spectator New York Wine Experience in October.

“Since we first opened our doors in 1993, Frank Family Vineyards has been dedicated to providing outstanding guest experiences and crafting exceptional wines,” says Frank. “These awards are a testament to our Winemaker and General Manager Todd Graff’s prowess in creating delicious wines that run the gamut from still to sparkling. Todd has been with us for over twenty harvests and has been integral in defining the signature style of Frank Family wines.”

Frank Family has consistently garnered recognition as one of Napa Valley’s premier wineries in both consumer and industry rankings. In addition to Rich’s Wine Star award from Wine Spectator, Frank Family’s new Miller House was featured as “Best Tasting Experiences in the West 2023” by Sunset magazine.

“The continued recognition of Frank Family Vineyards is a credit to the dedicated winemaking and hospitality team we have built over the years. Some of our crew have stood alongside me in the cellar for over two decades, and I am thrilled to share these awards with them,” says Graff.

The Press Democrat’s Best of Napa County awards were determined through reader nomination and votes, with the winners announced on Nov. 5. View all the winners here.
