Everyone there was so friendly! Liam taught us so much about wine. The wines are a bit pricey but they were delicious. A very enjoyable experience!

After seeing a lot of great reviews, we decided to try Frank. Was able to secure a same day reservation. We arrived early and waited outside until our name was called. I was under the impression that due to the reservation, the tasting would be sit down or intimate, on some level. Inside, there were two bars in the same... More

This place seemed like it was on the edge of burning down and we weren't quite sure if anyone was going to call the fire department... joking, but everyone was so blitzed it was hard to appreciate the full experience.

Frank Family has wonderful cabs and other reds. However, we were about bowled over that they charged us $90 for 3 people tasting and wouldn't wave that with a sig. purchase. Not a way to run a business and, subconsciously, we think we bought less than we would have otherwise. Not sure we'd return as there are sooo many other... More

I've been coming to this winery since the 1980's and it never disappoints. Frank Family has grown over the years and it's popularity has grown with the facilities but they still pour a very good glass of wine. Dennis the tasting room manage is a legend in Napa Valley. If you can arrange a tasting with him do it. He... More

Very pleasant setting with good wine and Mike was knowledgeable about the winery and the individual wines. Purchased several of the wines, and would definitely go back. Not fancy, but a nice change of pace with pleasant outdoor tasting area.

Without knowing anyone else who had been to the vineyard, we ventured there and found it to be a highlight of our visit. The staff was warm, welcoming and so passionate about the wine. Several delicious wines - we bought red, white and dessert wine. Super reasonable pricing for the quality. Not only a great winery to visit but a... More

Because of matching last names, it has to be a great winery. Wines were average at best. The man pouring wine was not very informative and we were not allowed to go on any tours or just wander around and look at the facilities. Pictures inside looked to promote another Hollywood person with his plastic arm candy. Not impressed with... More

Great wine and history of the area. Our server was very knowledgeable with the entire process and made the stop the best of the day.

Arrived about a half hour before our appointed tasting time, so had time to look around the property a bit and relax under the trees. Very nice place. Zahara (sp?) conducted our tasting and was an excellent hostess. She did a great job of explaining the wines, the history of the winery and the Frank family. Wines were very drinkable... More
