attraction

Visit the Finger Lakes winery founded by the legendary Dr. Konstantin Frank, pioneer grower of European wine grape varieties in the eastern United States, on Keuka Lake in New York State. Founded in 1962, Vinifera Wine Cellars was the first Finger Lakes winery to produce truly world-class wines. They include: Johannisberg Riesling-Dry and Semi-Dry, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Rkatsiteli, Fleur de Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and others. To this day, Vinifera Wine Cellars - now in the capable hands of Dr. Frank's son, Willy and grandson Fred - is regarded as a pillar of the area's fine wine industry.

Its sister winery, Chateau Frank, is dedicated to producing outstanding sparkling wines. Chateau Frank's flagship Brut Champagne has received countless accolades and has caught the attention of wine experts from coast to coast.

Tasting Room Information:
The tasting room is open Monday-Saturday from 9-5, and Sunday from 12-5. Reservations are required for ALL limousine, bus, and hired transport groups.
Groups of 10 or more will be charged with a non-refundable fee of $5.00 per person. There is a 24-maximum group size.

We always enjoy making new friends and sharing a glass of wine with wine lovers traveling through the Finger Lakes region with our New York Wine Tours. The tasting room is open daily 9-5 and Sundays 12-5. We also have a number of special events at our New York winery; see our schedule. The legacy of Dr. Frank also continues in our grapevine nursery, providing the best possible grafted vines for your vineyard.
