friendly staff, good wine, nice hostess. A little put off at first when we were told they might be too busy for tasting...there were three other visitors in the tasting room and three staff...not sure what that was all about

We have visited many Finger Lakes wineries in the past but never made it to Dr. Frank's before. We are so glad we got there this trip. Four of us stopped by on a rainy Wednesday afternoon and were promptly served by Keo. The wines he served us were generously poured and each one was great. We loved the different... More

We really enjoyed this winery. The wine was amazing. The staff were knowledgeable and the tasting was free. The tasting bars were outside which was nice on a sunny day. We bought a semi-dry Reisling which was delicious. Nice place

We visited six wineries during our stay at Finger Lakes, and Dr. Frank's was the best of them. We were amazed that the tasting was free, as the pours were generous and the quality of the wines excellent. Our server was very knowledgable about the wines. A number of bottles left with us, and we would definitely return.

We've been to Dr. Frank before, and we return, in part because of some of the more unique wine offerings. This visit we had to wait to do the tasting, mainly because they were quite busy. The staff apologized and worked to create extra space for us and a few others who had arrived about the same time. Our tasting... More

After several trips to the Finger Lakes, I was looking forward to Dr Frank's. I was disappointed with my visit there. The server seemed very rushed and didn't seem to take the time to talk to us. I believe there may have been" club members" at the other end of the bar who he was focussing on. Had the server... More

We really enjoyed the tasting at this location. We tried 6 or so wines and there was no charge. The semi dry Riesling is wonderful and we enjoyed the view!

We found the wines...Rieslings, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, and Sparkling Rose...delightful. New York State wines are excellent, and Dr. Frank's are among the best. There is no charge for tastings here, and we sampled 8 or so wines. The tasting guide, Coleen, was most knowledgeable and personable as we tasted, discussed, and tasted. She offered us tastings of several Reserve wines,... More

Enjoyed the tasting room, bought some wine...and the t-shirt! My favorites: the Dr. Frank Dry Riesling and the Gewürztraminer.

A friend recommended this as her favorite winery in the area. The guy who led our tasting was very nice and knowledgeable. Unlike many of the others in the area, they don't charge for a tasting. The view from their deck is lovely and we bought a few bottles.
