Our sparkling wines are sourced from vineyards in Carneros, undergoing a special process that takes about five years from vineyard to consumer. With four styles, Sparkling is the smallest of our collections and can be found in our tasting room, through our web store, as part of our wine club, and by very few select retailers.
30th Anniversary Lady Edythe Brut Rosé
Crafted to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Frank Family Vineyards, this Chardonnay-dominated sparkling rosé is pink-fruit colored and flavored, with a smooth and refined mousse. Delicately textured, it shows notes of white peach, strawberry, and yeasty brioche with plenty of mineral-tinged acidity. Still amazingly young and fresh after six years of aging on the lees, this remarkable bottle proves approachable yet thought-provoking all at once.

Both a pleasure and an adventure to produce, we look forward to enjoying this special 30th Anniversary Lady Edythe Brut Rosé with you now and for the next 30 years to come!
To honor Frank Family’s 30th anniversary, we crafted a late disgorged sparkling rosé to commemorate the journey that began with Founders Rich and Leslie Frank three decades ago. Named, Lady Edythe, in honor of our matriarch, Edythe Frank, this wine is worthy to be classified as our tête de cuvée, essentially the best of our best; and with only 1,000 bottles produced for this special occasion, this wine is all the more precious and rare.
The Lady Edythe Brut Rosé comes from the standout 2015 vintage and is a tribute to Frank Family’s sparkling wine legacy dating back to the late 1950s when our historic property was home to one of California’s earliest sparkling wine producers, Hanns Kornell Champagne Cellars. Decades later, Frank Family continues to honor the heritage of our iconic winery by handcrafting sparkling wines according to the méthode champenoise.

Lady Edythe Reserve Brut
Named in honor of Rich Frank’s mother, Edythe, the Lady Edythe is a late disgorged sparkling wine with 8 years on its lees. Its intensity and concentration derives from its predominately Chardonnay base that provides classic Champenoise minerality as well as elegant citrus fruit flavors. Its acidity has been softened and beautifully integrated by the wine’s maturity, yet it still is remarkably full of life.
