(June 11, 2020; Calistoga, Calif.)— On Wednesday, June 10, Frank Family Vineyards re-opened for in-person, by-appointment tastings. Owners Rich Frank and Leslie Frank gathered the whole Frank Family team to celebrate the winery reopening with a music video parody of Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline.” Patrick Davis of Songwriters in Paradise is featured on guitar and vocals. Frank Family’s Marketing Manager Marisa McCann wrote the lyrics, which cover Frank Family’s new safety protocols for visits in light of COVID-19 regulations. These practices include social distancing measures such as limited party sizes, outside seating, and the requirement of personal face coverings.

“While the world has changed, our passion for sharing wine and memories with our guests has not,” says Rich who plays the role of Welcome Crew, Dancer and Sign Holder in the video. “We are so grateful to welcome guests back to Frank Family. In addition to our patio seating, we’ve set up tables outside in our front courtyard so that guests may sit with proper distance between them, and also enjoy our beautiful surroundings.”
Frank Family Vineyards is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and offers two tastings by reservation only: the Estate Tasting ($50) held on the back patio, estate courtyard and on the front lawn and the Wines of Winston Hill reserve tasting ($70) held only in the courtyard.
