Overview

Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery is one of the most prestigious and beloved wineries in the Finger Lakes. The winery's founder, Dr. Konstantin Frank introduced vinifera (classic European grape varieties) to the Eastern United States which ignited a winemaking renaissance in the region. Without the contributions of Dr. Frank, the Finger Lakes wine region would not be where it is today. The winery was established in 1962 and is now in its fourth generation of Frank family ownership. The winery's tasting room overlooks beautiful Keuka Lake and some of the oldest vinifera vineyards in America.

Three of us went initially for the scenery but enjoyed the complimentary wine tasting. They are diligent about the amount consumed so you have to choose between the complimentary and the more exclusive tastings. Our server (?) gave us the amazing story behind the vineyard...More

Yes but don’t Allie inside the winery unless guide dogs. They have outside seating and will serve you there, if a weekend should do in advance call and arrange. During the week will make it work.

The folks at the tasting gave us the names of two local restaurants which were excellent for dinner or lunch. Ask the vineyard folks because I can't remember the names.....
