We spent time enjoying the atmosphere, the education on how their wine was made. The staff made our visit most enjoyable. The wine as the icing on the beverage cake. Will definitely return for round two this summer.

The Finger Lakes region is dotted with wineries, vineyards, breweries, and small towns. It is a stunningly pretty and fun place. Dr. Franks leads the pack. One of the few wineries that offers vitis vinifera wines. All of which are able to stand up to...More

Unlike many wineries in the Finger Lakes, Dr. Frank's tasting is complimentary. They are able to do that because their wines are top notch and they are pretty confident that no one leaves with out buying SOMETHING! Their portfolio is extensive, with many good reds...More

Jen provided us a wonderful and educational wine tasting as we looked out over the beautiful Keuka Lake. The 2015 Chardonnay was excellent and is reasonably priced. The fully oaked estate Chardonnay was outstanding, but had a price tag that was a little over double....More

The place has wonderful views of the Lake. They control the flow of people into the tasting room ... so no crowds or jockeying for space at the tasting bars. The tastings are gratis and the servers pleasant. The Rieslings were exceptional. The sweet wines...More

Yes but don’t Allie inside the winery unless guide dogs. They have outside seating and will serve you there, if a weekend should do in advance call and arrange. During the week will make it work.
