Learn More About Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery

Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery has an amazing legacy four generations in the making. Our founder, Dr. Konstantin Frank, introduced Vitis vinifera to the Finger Lakes starting a winemaking renaissance in the region. The winery is now in its fourth generation of family ownership and is among the most prestigious in the Finger Lakes region.

Our approach to great winemaking is generational with each Frank family member building upon the foundation that Dr. Konstantin Frank built over fifty years ago. Continuing this legacy means producing the highest quality wines from the highest quality grapes.

We believe that quality starts in the vineyards with careful attention to detail and nurturing of our old vine vineyards first planted by Konstantin in 1957. These old vine vineyards are among the oldest in the United States. While they produce fewer grapes, the quality of the fruit results in more complex wines.

Located at 9749 Middle Rd. Hammondsport, NY 14840
Open year round Mon-Sat 9am-5pm, Sun 12-5pm
(Please note: the last tasting is at 4:45pm daily)

Watch a Video About Our 1886 Reserve Tasting Room

The "1886" Reserve Room caters to those with a deeper interest in the Dr. Frank winemaking and viticultural program. Visits are available by reservation only and include a 30 minute in depth viticultural or cellar experience, followed by a seated educational wine flight paired with creative, small foods from local chefs. Wine flights often include older vintages from the winery's esteemed private library. Wines, foods and experiential components are rotated monthly to ensure continued customer education. NEW THIS YEAR!: Monthly rotation of local artwork from Quintus Art Gallery in Watkins Glen. Each month will feature a new set of artwork that will pair with the wine theme of the month (Riesling, Sparkling, Unique, Barrel fermented etc).

The “1886” Room is located at 9683 Middle Rd Hammondsport, NY directly above the Dr. Konstantin Frank sparkling wine cellar. The name for the room was inspired by the age of the building. Built in 1886 by Philip Argus, a German immigrant, the building was once the Western New York Wine Company. Like many Hammondsport area wineries, the Western New York Wine Company went out of business during prohibition. In 1980, Willy Frank, son of Dr. Konstantin Frank, purchased the property with the intent to produce the region’s first ever methode champenoise sparkling wines from vinifera. In 1985, Willy released his first methode champenoise sparkling wines. Today, the Dr. Konstantin Frank sparkling wine cellar building is an architectural gem in the Keuka Lake area with its natural fieldstone walls and wine cellar that is perfect for the long term aging of sparkling wines.

The 1886 Reserve Tasting Room was featured in Vineyard & Winery Management Magazine's "Top 20 Most Admired Wine Tasting Rooms" as well as Zagat's "8 Reason's to Drive to the Finger Lakes". For more information, visit
