Discover Frank Family Vineyards
Frank Family Vineyards is located in the third-oldest building in Napa Valley. Though once home to only sparkling wines, the winery honors this tradition by continuing to hand-craft five sparkling wines using the classic French champenoise method while adding superb still wines to their offerings. Their labels honor the original building while they continue to evolve. In 2015, the Frank Family received Napa green certifications for both their land and winery.
The Frank Family Cabernet offers an exceptional value, with similar wines costing twice as much. And when you purchase wine from us, you save even more. We also carry other varietals such as Merlot and Chardonnay so you can find a wine that pleases every palate.

Popular Tasting Notes
Cabernet Tasting Note: A beautiful wine from a near-perfect vintage, this robust Cabernet Sauvignon shows balance and complexity - a blend of dark berry, red cherry, generous toasted oak notes, clove, and nutmeg. This is a supple and complex wine, full-bodied in style, with a punch of power, ripeness, and elegance from start to finish.
Chardonnay Tasting Note: This white wine appears light straw in the glass with aromas of toasted brioche, baking spices, and candied lemon rind. On the palate, the Carneros Chardonnay is full-bodied and creamy yet balanced by lively acidity; with nuanced flavors of yellow apple, lemon curd, baked pear, melon, and subtle hints of oaky buttery toast.
