Dr. Frank's Vinifera Wine Cellars
Located on the west side of Keuka Lake, just a short distance from Hammondsport, NY, Dr. Frank's offers an unforgettable experience for wine lovers and history aficionados alike. Established 1962.
Dr. Konstantin Frank ignited the ''Vinifera Revolution'', a movement that forever changed the course of wine growing in the Finger Lakes and the United States. Dr. Frank’s vision, knowledge and determination are credited with elevating the New York wine industry from a state of happy mediocrity to a level that today commands world attention.
ur 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.
We believe that quality starts in the vineyards with careful attention to detail and nurturing of our old vine vineyards first planted by Konstantin in 1958. These old vine vineyards are among the oldest in the United States. While they produce fewer grapes, the quality of the fruit results in more complex wines.
Continuing Konstantin's legacy also means continuing to spread the word about the quality of Finger Lakes wines. We do this by entering wine competitions all over the world. Customers can also find our wines in many different states. Experience has taught us over the past fifty years that our wine region is and can become one of the most prestigious in the world.
