On our 10th Annual Gulpy Sipper (friends and family) wine tour we started at Dr Franks because the reviews and rumors are correct, it's great! They could accommodate 24 of our group for the first tasting in the morning. The sun was shining, a few puffy white clouds and a beautiful blue sky were the backdrop for our outside deck... More

There are so many wineries in this region, it can be hard to figure out where to go. Luckily, we have friends who own a winery who took us around. This was there favorite place, and we enjoyed it as well. Excellent wine and friendly staff

The 1886 tasting program pairs wines and foods and tours the vineyards. A must see experience, even for -- especially for -- wine connoisseurs.

This is a must see winery as the tasting room overlooks Keuka Lake below. We tasted five wines and the pours were generous. This winery does not charge a fee for the tasting. Highly recommended and hope to return again.

Dr. Konstantin Frank's is a fine place to visit for wine tasting. The tasting room overlooks vineyards and Keuka Lake below. A tasting visit consists of five wines of your choice from a specified list. If you are a Dr. Frank wine club member, you have a larger choice of wines. Ask if George is available to give you a...

Their whites were very good and not sure if they don't charge, but we had a free sampling with generous pours. Not as much fun as Bully Hill, but I definitely recommend a stop here.

Dr. Frank was inspired to bring good wine back to the Finger Lakes region. The history is amazing. And the wine is wonderful. Of special note is that the tasting is free - and a good idea - because once you try it, you will buy. We did! And do not overlook the sparkling wine. The sparkling pinot noir is... More

We have passed through the Finger Lakes many times and stayed a night or two. This time we stayed a week and a half to see more attractions, do some hiking, sample the local produce in season, and, of course, visit more wineries. No matter how many other wineries we saw, none top Dr. Frank's. As a previous reviewer mentioned,... More
