Meaghan Frank of Dr. Konstatin Frank Winery – Finger Lakes, NY

September 12 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

——- by Marty Cook          

High above the steep southwestern slope of Keuka Lake, to the north of the town of Hammondsport, New York, sits a winery founded in 1961 by Dr. Konstantin Frank. The Dr. Frank Winery pioneered the vinifera movement in the Eastern United States. It was here in 1957 that Dr. Konstantin Frank planted the first East Coast vinifera vines, which launched the “Vinifera Revolution”. This movement would have a lasting effect on the course of winemaking in New York and Eastern America. Four generations strong, the Frank family are leaders in grape growing and winemaking throughout the Finger Lakes and beyond.

In the intervening sixty years, the Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery has grown and flourished and the operation has remained under the guidance of the very qualified Frank family members. The winery occupies a place of preeminence among East Coast wineries as well as American wineries in general. Their wines have garnered countless awards and have firmly established the Finger Lakes as one of the best winegrowing regions in the United States as well as in the world, producing cooler climate wines such as Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Grüner Veltliner, and Rkatsiteli that rival the best that the world has to offer!

On Sunday, September 12th at 3:30 pm, it is our pleasure to host an hour of wine discussion and tasting with guest, Meaghan Frank, the great-grand-daughter of Dr. Konstantin Frank. Meaghan is the Marketing arm of the Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery and she will introduce us to a trio of their incredible wines from the Finger Lakes Region:

2020 Rkatsiteli ~ A Georgian grape variety that dates back to 3000 B.C. and the oldest known grape variety in the world. Light, crisp, dry, and delightfully refreshing! Scored 93 Points and “Wine of the Month” from the Finger Lakes Times (August 2021).

2018 “Eugenia” Dry Riesling ~ Our driest Riesling made from vines dating back to 1968, this wine received 94 points from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate.

2017 Brut ~ Three traditional champagne grapes (a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier) aged Méthode Champenoise for at least 36 months. A “Top 100 Best Buys in the World” with a score of 92 Points from Wine & Spirits Magazine (August 2021).
