Once owned by Lillie Hitchcock Coit, the benefactress of San Francisco's Coit Tower, Frank Family Vineyards has the distinction of being the oldest, continually operated sparkling wine producer in Napa Valley. Now under the the direction of Rich Frank, the former president of Disney Studios, the winery produces 75,000 cases a year of hand-riddled blanc de blanc, rouge and brut rose, along with cab, pinot noir, zinfandel, chardonnay and sangiovese. Tastings (by appointment only) take place in the historic butter yellow farm house whose rooms have been stylishly renovated, each with a different theme. A comfortable patio overlooking the vineyards is open in nice weather.
