Speakers

Rich Frank
Vintner @Frank Family Vineyards
Rich Frank’s love of wine first stemmed from his extensive travel via his global career as the former President of Disney Studios. He discovered his love for the Napa Valley in the 1980s, and soon after purchased a home with a vineyard in the heart of Rutherford. The purchase catalyzed Rich’s “second career” as owner of Napa Valley based Frank Family Vineyards. His passion for the winery underscores a wildly successful long-term career in Hollywood. Under Rich’s leadership, television and movie properties such as Cheers, Pretty Woman, Aladdin, and The Lion King achieved phenomenal success. Never one to rest his laurels, the former film and TV exec stepped into his role as Napa Valley vintner with ease. Rich now lives in Napa Valley full-time and is actively involved in all aspects of the winery.
Cyril Chappellet
Vintner @Chappellet Vineyard
The only person other than his late-father, Donn, to hold the title of CEO in the history of Chappellet, Cyril guides the day-to-day workings of the winery and vineyard, overseeing sales and marketing efforts and working with his mother and siblings to ensure the ongoing vitality of the business. Under Cyril's leadership, Chappellet has been recognized for making some of the finest wines in its storied history, and Pritchard Hill has catapulted to center stage as California’s premier location for mountain-grown Bordeaux varietals, most notably, Cabernet Sauvignon.
Jim Regusci
Vintner @Regusci Winery
Jim Regusci was born and raised a Napa Valley third-generation farmer. In 1986, at just 19 years ago, Jim founded Regusci Vineyard Management (RVM). With just a white pick-up truck and a strong will, he built a farming company that today manages over 1,500 acres and custom farms an additional 1,300, as well as employs over 175 full-time employees. In the mid-1990s, Jim and his late father, Angelo Regusci, returned winemaking to their historical family property and bottled their first Regusci Winery Cabernet Sauvignon. A few years later, they opened a Tasting Room for the general public. Today, the Regusci Winery and Ranch property encompasses 286-acres, including an 1878 three-floor gravity flow winery (the third oldest production facility in Napa Valley) producing highly esteemed Bordeaux varietals. Jim serves as the proprietor to the winery and vineyard management businesses bearing his name.
