Frank Family Vineyards
Welcome to the Frank Family Vineyards winery, located on Larkmead Lane south of Calistoga, where wine tastes the sweetest! First constructed in 1884, this sandstone building still stands strong and is considered as one of the finest structures in the county. The wine here is produced in small quantities and sold at the winery and at a select number of stores and restaurants. A guided tour of the winery can be conducted by prior appointment. The winery also provides separate tasting areas for sparkling and still wines. It also serves as a good picnic spot.
Yes, its free, but you get what you pay for. I'm not crazy about this place or their wines. They are one of the few places that sell a pink champagne, but so what. For my money, I'd rather pay the fee at the Larkmead tasting room across the street. Far far superior red wines. Also, the Frank tasting room isn't associated with any of the vineyards around it. They just own the buildings. The vineyards and that terrific soil all belong to the Larkmead winery. Check out the castello di amorosa too. That's a fun tour of an extraordinary building.
We had a bottle of Frank Family Chardonnay for Thanksgiving and it was the best we have had in a very long time. It had the nutty buttery tast that is so good. No bite to it at all. We thank you for a nice Thanksgiving surprise. We will buy more !! We really liked the people that worked there.
While visiting from North Carolina recently. my wife and I spent the day touring vineyards in Napa and Calistoga and I must say that without a doubt, Frank Family Vineyards was the most entertaining and enjoyable vineyard that we visited. The tasting room is not the fancy quality of Sterling, but the atmosphere and discussion that we had with the room manager and staff far surpassed any other vineyard we toured.They were more than willing to let you taste several wines and even open two bottles of reserve for sampling. The day that we visited, Rich Frank was also there and is very approachable. We felt like family here and will definetly buy wine from them in the future.
I really loved the tasting room at Frank Family vineyards. 6 or 7 tastes, the Champagne was very good and I bought a bottle.
The best part is that it is a free tasting room!!!
Also the staff is very funny and a bit irreverent.
