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.
We are excited for 2022 and we hope you can join us for this monumental year!
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.
Returning this year, 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 all guests, no reservations required!
1886 Food & Wine Experience
Returning once again, the 1886 Food & Wine Experience is our most in-depth and intimate tasting experience. This experience is located within the beautiful historic Chateau Frank and features original fieldstone walls and wood beam ceilings combined with modern and contemporary decor. Each day features a unique vineyard or winemaking experience paired with wines. Afterward, guests return to the 1886 Reserve Room for a seated flight of wines paired with thoughtfully crafted seasonal bites. Our retail room at 1886 will be reopening once again, and an upcoming surprise we can’t wait to announce!
This year, we are pleased to announce a full calendar of events, specially curated to offer an array of educational and leisurly experiences to make your visits memorable! Available to everyone, we will have events focused on the culinary arts, interactive tastings, and a monumental celebration commerating 60 years of premium winemaking!
