Rich and Leslie Frank established the Frank Family Vineyards, on its present Larkmead Lane site, in 1993, but the history of wine production on the property dates back to the late 19th century when Lillie “Firebelle” Hitchcock Coit  first planted vines and sourced grapes to nearby wineries. The property was subsequently acquired by Napa Valley icon John Solari in 1948 who later sold it to third generation German-born sekt (sparkling wine) maker and Holocaust survivor, Hanns Kornell, who established Kornell Champagne Cellars in 1958. Hanns unfortunately lost the winery to foreclosure and it was later purchased by the Frank Family. With a distinguished career in film and television, Rich Frank was the President of Disney Studios when he, with his wife and Emmy award winning news journalist Leslie, purchased their first Napa Valley property as a weekend retreat that also provided access to their passion for good wine. Today, 25 years later, Rich and Leslie have acquired vineyards in Rutherford, the Carneros and Vaca Mountain appellations and expanded production to nearly 75,000 cases annually.

The evening promises to be not only a delicious adventure in flavors, but also an education in Napa wine making.
