As the days get shorter and shorter, the Christmas season is a welcoming sign in Sweden. The homes are lit up with stars and candelabras in the windows, candles flickering on coffee tables and the majestic Christmas tree sparkles in the corner. After the first and second advent, Lucia appears on December 13 with her candle wreath crowning her head.
Everyone is looking forward to Christmas Eve as families gather for a traditional feast. The kitchen fills up with aromas of spices and herbs as the different dishes are prepared.
We invite you to our Swedish Holiday Celebration hosted by Yvonne Locke. A longtime employee and native of Sweden, Yvonne will guide diners through the traditions of her homeland through stories and traditional food pairings.
The two-hour event will include a welcome wine, a winery experience, sit-down pairing of 6 traditional bites with Dr. Frank wines, a bottle of wine to take home for the holiday, a finale tasting in our 1962 Reserve Room, and a surprise we can't mention!
To book your reservation, please call the winery at 800-320-0735.
Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery is one of the most prestigious and beloved wineries in the Finger Lakes. The winery's founder, Dr. Konstantin Frank introduced vinifera (classic European grape varieties) to the region starting a winemaking renaissance in the region. Without the contributions of Dr. Frank, the Finger Lakes wine region would not be where it is today. The winery was established in 1962 and is now in its fourth generation of Frank family ownership.
A Visit to the Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery
The Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery is situated on the south western hills of Keuka Lake. It was here in 1957 that Dr. Konstantin Frank planted his first vinifera vines with the hopes of growing world class wines based on cool climate grape varieties like Riesling, Pinot Noir, and Rkatsiteli.
A visit to the Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery is steeped with four generations of history and education. We offer several different tasting experiences to allow each guest to choose their preferred method of tasting. Combine our quality wines with spectacular views and one of the most knowledgeable tasting room staff in the Finger Lakes, and you’re sure to have an unforgettable experience!
