Event Details

Vineyard History

The Frank’s approach to great winemaking is generational with each Frank family member building upon the foundation that Dr. Konstantin Frank built over fifty years ago. Continuing this legacy means producing the highest quality wines from the highest quality grapes. Known for their use of Northern European grape varieties, wines such as Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Noir and most recently, Grüner Veltliner are among the most prized and beloved at their winery. According to a recent Times article, “As consumers look increasingly to locally-sourced wines, bottles from the Finger Lakes are becoming a go-to for wine drinkers in the New York metropolitan area and beyond. Dr. Konstantin Frank produces world class Rieslings as well as Gewürztraminer, and was named the 2012 Winery of the Year from NY Wine & Food Classic.”
