Had a good time here. Wines were excellent. Colleen was an awesome knowledgeable host/wine expert. I could listen to her speak all day. She was so nice that she helped us plan the rest of our day with recommendations of places to stop for lunch and dinner.

What's remarkable about Dr. Frank's is the sheer number of varietals that they produce, and all from their own grapes. The Finger Lakes is known for Riesling, but Dr. Frank's shows that you can grow many other types of grapes, and do it well. The wines are outstanding. By far the best in the Finger Lakes, and I've been to... More

Beautiful location, multi-generational family business, nice folks, knowledgeable too. Did I mention their wine? Very good, and excellent bang for your buck. We always return here whenever we're close to the finger lakes.

We have been to many wineries over the years, but Dr. Frank was one of the best. Every winery has its own culture, and Dr. Frank's does not disappoint. We tasted about five wines (because we know what we like) and the tastings were free. The server was knowledgable but also fun. The wine was wonderful and we bought several... More

This was our last stop that day and all agreed that we wished we had started here. We have no complaints about the other places we stopped, but this is simply hands down better. Good staff, great wines.
