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.

Stopped here for a tasting, and had a great time, and enjoyed the wines. First off they offer the tasting for free, which is fabulous. They have a wide selection of wines, both in taste, style, and price, so there really is something for everyone. Our server was great too, very friendly and informative, and he just kept on pouring... More

We made a trip from our home in Northern Virginia, which is quickly becoming a player in wine regions. We were excited to taste wines from the Finger Lake region and Dr Frank's was our first stop. We were really impressed with the spectacular views from the tasting deck! There is no fee to taste and Allyn, our pourer was... More

No charge for wine tastings, and instead of a fixed selection of wines, the host took the time to find out about our preferences and poured samples until we identified several favorites. The winery is a little bit out of the way, and does not have the good views available at Heron Hill or Bully Hill, but we were very... More

George met us when we walked up to the front deck. He took us in and explained how he handles his wine tastings, which by the way there was no charge for. While he got started, a few more couples joined us. George was very attentive and offered "extra" samples. By the time we were done, we had ordered a... More
