The Tasting Room is Open
A Welcome Taste
Located on quiet, tree-lined Larkmead Lane in Calistoga, Frank Family Vineyards' tasting room is one of the most popular destinations in the valley, voted “Best Napa Winery" by the Bay Area A-List seven years in a row. For more than 20 years, we've welcomed guests, offering tastings in a quaint room known as much for its no-frills approach and friendly staff as it is for the elegant wines poured inside. Today, the tasting room maintains its convivial charm, housed inside a beautiful 1930’s pale yellow Craftsman home. Here, guests have the opportunity to taste the full array of single-vineyard reserve wines, only available through the winery.
Our tasting room is open daily to the public from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. We recommend making reservations in advance of your visit.
The Moments Here
The experience at Frank Family Vineyards is unlike anywhere else in Napa Valley—you're part of the family. Within our restored 70-year-old Craftsman house, we have a casual, social tasting room, led by a dedicated, friendly staff. Guests may enjoy a seated tasting inside, or outside under the giant, 100-year-old Elm trees, relaxing at the wooden picnic tables and enjoying the spectacular vineyard views. Our hospitality experience is paramount, and we hope you'll feel it in everything we do. In the comfortable, park-like setting, we think the wine tastes even better, and the days feel that much greater.
We want everyone who walks through our tasting room doors to feel welcome, and to taste the best wine of their lives—to feel like guests, not customers.
Tasting Room Family
Our tasting room staff is part of the extended Frank Family, who will make you feel like a member, too. Their passion for wine is met with industry knowledge, and they're always eager to share both with guests. Priority focus is put on creating the best tasting experience in Napa Valley, where time spent here is really unlike anywhere else.
Beyond the tastings, our tasting room staff also acts like Napa Valley concierges, always ready to recommend a restaurant, a hotel, or other wineries to visit. They want guests to not only enjoy themselves at Frank Family Vineyards, but to inspire a memorable trip throughout the area. You'll be well taken care of while in their hands.
Visitors to Frank Family’s tasting room are often greeted by our German Shepherd, Riley. Riley was just over a year old when he was rescued from West Side German Shepherd rescue in Los Angeles, and even though he was past his “puppy training” stage, he quickly learned new tricks from Rich and Leslie, like greeting every person in the tasting room, where he "works it" with his big personality.
Riley loves good vistas, and regularly runs to the top of our Winston Hill Vineyard in Rutherford, where his favorite pastime is taunting the chickens. He also loves to swim, and can be found jumping in the pool, anytime of the year. Most importantly, Riley is exceptionally sweet and loving—a big part of our family and usually, a big part of making winery visitors feel right at home.
