A Visit Rooted in Family History

60 years ago, our founder Dr. Konstantin Frank opened his home to visiting guests interested in discovering the first vinifera wines of the Finger Lakes. These guests still remember those first tastings on the porch with Dr. Frank and Eugenia. Four generations later, the Frank family and the team at Dr. Konstantin Frank continue the tradition of sharing legendary wine in an intimate and personal atmosphere.

Signature Seated Tastings

Over the next two years, our main tasting room, our deck, and Konstantin’s original home will be fully transformed with various improvements. Walk-up bar tastings will be elevated to individual seated tastings guided by a Wine Educator. We’ve listened to those who provided their feedback and we are pleased to offer guests the choice of their own flight to taste from our entire list. Guests have the option to add a cheese and charcuterie plate or, new for this season starting Memorial Weekend, an individual pairing plate with crafted seasonal bites artfully designed by Lakelife Catering.
