Zahava Kraiser Promoted to Tasting Room Manager at Frank Family Vineyards

Posted on April 17, 2017

(April 17, 2017; Calistoga, Calif.)—Rich and Leslie Frank, owners of Frank Family Vineyards, along with Winemaker and General Manager Todd Graff, are pleased to announce that long time tasting room employee Zahava Kraiser has been promoted to the role of Tasting Room Manager.

Zahava first visited Frank Family Vineyards for a wine tasting with friends in 2010 after moving from Boston to Napa. “I visited for a tasting with Dennis Zablosky, Frank Family’s longtime tasting room manager, and I loved it so much that I never left,” says Zahava. A former employee of Hewlett-Packard, Zahava strongly identified with Frank Family’s focus on hospitality and customer service, and began working as a sales associate in the tasting room shortly after her visit. Over the last seven years, she has worked her way up from sales associate, to assistant tasting room manager, before being promoted to tasting room manager. In her new role, Zahava oversees everything from employee scheduling to inventory, and makes sure the tasting room runs smoothly day in and day out. Her goal is to showcase Frank Family’s wines while ensuring that every guest leaves satisfied.
