Pioneering Legendary Wine

Dr. Konstantin Frank immigrated to America at the age of fifty-two years old with empty pockets and no knowledge of English, with the hope of creating a brighter future for his family. He proved to the world that high-quality wines could be made in New York. His techniques and innovations began a revolution in the Finger Lakes that would forever influence the region.

For over sixty years, we have been producing highly acclaimed traditional method sparkling wines, crisp and aromatic white wines, and rich red wines.
