Celebrating 60 Years

1962 – 2022

Four generations strong, the Frank family has been leaders of grape growing and winemaking throughout the Finger Lakes. Our estate vineyards on Keuka Lake represent the oldest Riesling, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir vines in the Eastern United States.

"Good grapes varieties are not good enough for Americans. You Americans deserve only excellent. This is my duty, as scientist, and this is my duty, as an American patriot,”

Pioneering Legendary Wine

1962 – 2022

Dr. Konstantin Frank knew from his experience growing grapes in very cold climates that high quality vinifera wines could be made in New York. With plenty of opposition, Dr. Konstantin Frank pushed forward and made his own way. No one believed him. His techniques and innovations began a revolution in the Finger Lakes that would forever change the region.
