How to Plan Your Finger Lakes Getaway

Busy Wife Busy Life recently traveled to the Finger Lakes and gave her recommendations on where to stay, how to get there, and wineries to visit. 

Dr. Konstantin Frank is the man who pioneered winemaking in this region. He opened this family-owned and -operated winery in 1962. I knew this was must-visit wine tour during our Finger Lakes getaway.

We had the pleasure of meeting Meaghan Frank, granddaughter of Dr. Frank and the general manager of the vineyard, which made our visit even more special.
