They are now set up in their warehouse while the house is being remodeled. Were seated at a large table with about 8 others. Wine offered was good for the $30/person tasting fee. But I am not a big Cabernet Sauvignon fan, so their wonderful Cabs were wasted on me. Found our host to be abrasive and annoying. Seemed an... More

Had a delightful tasting with Garrick. So knowledgeable and approachable. The Frank Family wines are delicious and the pours are generous. Make sure to make a reservation ahead.

I always wanted to go tasting at Frank Family because I've loved their cabernet for years, so when we were in Napa in January we put this winery on the list of places to stop and taste. I was truly disappointed in the experience. My boyfriend and I were put in with a group of 6 or so women celebrating... More

We had had an excellent time! Cabs are amazing! We joined and will be back! Bathrooms are not in the tasting room, so that was kind of a pain because it was raining.

We stopped because we had read great reviews. We didn't have a reservation, but they were able to get us in anyway! Lucky us!! Antonio was in charge of our wine tasting. Again Lucky us! He was raised in the area and was very knowledgeable. We discovered that a $150.00 bottle of wine is better! We loved the wine enough... More

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
