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.

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.
