Dr. Konstantin Frank - Finger Lakes - New York - Rkatsiteli
Overview: Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery is the pioneer of the Eastern United States’ vinifera movement. Situated on the southwestern hills of Keuka Lake, it was here in 1957 that Dr. Konstantin Frank planted the first vinifera vines in the Eastern United States and ignited the “Vinifera Revolution”. This movement would forever change the course of winemaking in New York. Four generations strong, the Frank family are leaders of grape growing and winemaking throughout the Finger Lakes. Our philosophy is to maintain the legacy built by our founder by continuously producing the highest quality wines from our vinifera vines. Varieties such as Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and most recently, Gruner Veltliner are prized and beloved at our winery. Our pioneering spirit pushes us to build upon our traditional foundation constantly innovating our methods.
