The Finger Lakes Pioneer Since 1962

Dr. Konstantin Frank Vinifera Wine Cellars

Dr. Konstantin Frank earned his Ph.D. in Viticulture from Odessa, Ukraine in 1930 and became a leading expert in his field throughout Eastern Europe. Having survived through two World Wars and the Russian Revolution, Dr. Frank immigrated to New York in 1951 at the age of 52-years-old, with empty pockets and no knowledge of English, in the hope of creating a brighter future for his family.

Dr. Konstantin Frank knew from his experience growing grapes in very cold climates that high quality vinifera wines could be made in New York. With plenty of opposition, Dr. Konstantin Frank pushed forward and made his own way. No one believed him. His techniques and innovations began a revolution in the Finger Lakes that would forever change the region. The proof is in our wines.

Sourced from a vineyard on Seneca Lake, this wine offers a stony, earthy core surrounded by citrus and apple tones on the nose. The palate is broad and juicy yet dry in style, with honed lemon, pome fruit and crushed stone elements zipping along. Alexander Peartree

Dr Konstantin Frank & Sons

Dr Konstantin Frank, the man, is responsible for giving New York wines made from vinifera grapes . He came to the Finger Lakes region in the 1950s and started planting trials of vinifera vines in the early 1960s. This was in a time when there was nothing but native/table grapes being made into cheap, sweeter wines with no complexity and average flavour. Konstantins trials were very successful, though many were still doubtful of the future successes, he decided to start his own winery. He started Dr Konstantin Frank & Sons Vinifera Wine Cellar in 1962 where he planted a whole raft of experimental vines such as Cabernet Franc, Rkatsiteli , Lemberger amongst many more. He also travelled around the states sharing his results and it is due to his confidence and expertise that many other states such as Virginia, Maryland, Washington are now able to make wines before it was often seen as too cold.

You Deserve Only Excellent

Ladies and Gentlemen. Good grapes varieties are not good enough for Americans. You Americans deserve only excellent, Dr. Konstantin Frank stated when presenting his first wines.

This is my duty, as scientist, and this is my duty, as an American patriot, he continued.

At the age of 63, when most Americans would be thinking of retirement at that age, he was building a winery from the ground up. He introduced grapes to the Finger Lakes from all over the world Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Rkatsiteli, Saperavi, and so on.

These grapes are excellent. This is the future of America.

He was right.

Bright, crisp aromas of peach, apple and yellow blossoms grace the nose of this deftly balanced Chardonnay. About half sees time in French oak, which adds a slightly creamy texture and a bit of spice to the ripe orchard fruit flavors on the palate. The fruit lingers pleasantly on the close.

Dr Konstantin Frank Week On The Perfect Pair

As some of you may already know, yesterday I received a very generous shipment from Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery in New York. Lugging the 23 pound box to my apartment, my insides gurgling with excitement, I wasting no time getting into my apartment and ripping open the package. Reading through the list of the wine included my eyes scanned over 8 wines. 8 wines!

As a service to Katie Cornelius and Fred Frank, I am featuring Dr. Konstantin Frank wines all this week. But before any food is made, I just want to take a minute to tell you a little about the winery.

Overview:

History

Fleeing a destruction ridden Europe during World War II, Dr. Konstantin Frank decided to uproot his family to America. After a short spurt working as a dish washer in New York City the Frank family moved upstate, where Dr. Frank worked for the Gold Seal Vineyard until he started Vinifera Wine Cellars in 1962.

Determined to grow vinifera wines of northern Europe, Dr. Frank helped transform New York from a sweet wine producer of only a few dozen vineyards, to a multimillion-dollar industry of fine wines, currently with over 200 vineyards state wide.

Handed down from generation to generation, Dr. Konstantin Frank Vinifera Wine Cellars is still family owned and operated to this day by Dr. Franks grandson, Fredrick Frank.

    Bright aromas of grapefruit, white flowers and pink peppercorn meld with a slightly grassy hop note on the nose. The palate is rounded in feel, showing a creamy melon flavor that’s honed by a lick of bitter spice. Alexander Peartree
