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 region starting 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.
Over the past fifty years, Dr. Konstantin Frank’s wines have consistently been featured in some of the most prestigious wine publications in the country. The winery’s tasting room overlooks beautiful Keuka Lake and some of the oldest vinifera vineyards in the U.S. A visit to the Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery is steeped with four generations of history and education. We offer several different tasting experiences to allow each guest to choose their preferred method of tasting. Combine our quality wines with spectacular views and one of the most knowledgeable tasting room staff in the Finger Lakes, and you’re sure to have an unforgettable experience!
