Essere Franco


The magic of Napa at Essere Franco


Our single vineyard estate grown fruit is a true representation of our fearless leader and his oversized lust for life. Frank D'Ambrosio and his family have been perfecting the art of wine since 1983 and currently own over 50 planted acres throughout Napa Valley of premium small lot fruit. Frank's most recent label under the Verismo umbrella and expression of his land in bottle form is what we are all proud to present to you: Essere Franco. With winemaker Tom Foster truly respecting the process as an art, we've decided to put the same amount of artistic energy into the package of our new portfolio of wines. Each bottle of Essere Franco has been screen printed and hand dipped in chip resistant wax, producing a package as expressive as the wine it carries.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our page, we hope you enjoy our wines as much as we did making them. So enjoy Essere Franco, and discover the magic of Napa Valley.
