Celebrating 60 Years
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. We are known for producing highly acclaimed traditional method sparkling wines, crisp and aromatic white wines, and rich red wines.
A Taste of History
Uniquely located on the southwestern slopes of Keuka Lake, it was here in 1958 that Dr. Konstantin Frank planted the first vinifera vines and ignited the Vinifera Revolution. This movement would forever change the course of winemaking in the Finger Lakes.
Our Signature Seated Tasting offers an intimate and personalized experience with guidance provided by one of our passionate Wine Educators.
For a deeper dive into our winery we offer cellar and vineyard tours followed by a seated educational wine flight paired with creative, small foods at the 1886 Food & Wine Experience.
The winery is surrounded by the beautiful Eugenia’s Garden and outdoor seating areas, so you can enjoy a glass of wine outside on a sunny day.
Eugenia’s Garden offers casual enjoyment of our wines in our outdoor setting. Guests have the option to order wines by glass, flights of three wines, or wines by the bottle at our convenient walk up bar. Cheese and charcuterie as well as seasonal small plates are available a la carte to accompany your leisurely experience. Eugenia’s Garden is open to guests, no reservations are required.

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.
Our Mini Documentary
Our newly released mini-documentary “Celebrating 60 Years of Excellence” sets the stage to tell the intriguing story of Dr. Konstantin Frank’s successes, challenges, and determination of a family humbly beginning a new life in America.
The story continues through the generations highlighting notable achievements over the following 40 years including the beginnings of traditional method sparkling wines, the purchase and planting of a new Seneca Lake vineyard by Frederick Frank and the joining of his daughter Meaghan Frank into the family business.
