Where History Was Planted

EST 1962 

Situated on the southwestern hills of Keuka Lake. It was here in 1958 that Dr. Konstantin Frank planted his first Vinifera vines and ignited the “Vinifera Revolution.” This movement would forever change the course of winemaking in the Finger Lakes and the Eastern United States.

"You deserve only excellent"

DR. KONSTANTIN FRANK

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. Named Top 100 Winery of 2019, the proof is now in our wines.

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.
