Restaurants to Support Across the US

2020 has proven to be a year of unique challenges. The beginning of of this year was on its way to become of the best revenue years for U.S. restaurants. Today, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced an estimated 1 in 6 restaurants to permanently or long-term close their doors.

At Frank Family vineyards, we aim to do our part in the community by not only spreading love and joy, but also awareness for meaningful causes. We value our partnerships with sommeliers, chefs, restaurant purveyors and all other members of the trade and we realize now more than ever, that we need to come together to support one another through these difficult times.

This November, we are honored to partner with the James Beard Foundation’s Open for Good campaign by donating 15% of all proceeds from online and in-house sales of our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Open for Good is focused on helping independent restaurants survive this crisis, rebuild better and thrive for the long term.

We can’t think of a better way to support the community than to enjoy great wine and great food. We are honored to be featured on some of the best wine lists across the country and invite you to explore some of our favorite restaurant partners below. Please share your photos with #FrankForACause on social media. Cheers to giving back!
