Upon being greeted with a welcome wine, the tour begins with a walk through our vineyards as you head to our underground barrel cellar. Here you will learn the process of barrel production, the different types of oak and where they originate from, and alternatives to barrel aging with amphora. You will taste wines aging in barrel from the 2019 vintage. Once the tour is complete, a seated flight of wines including Hilda Chardonnay, Old Vines Pinot Noir, Saperavi, and Lena Reserve are paired with chef’s seasonal bites. A finale tasting is offered afterwards featuring three additional Dr. Konstantin Frank wines.
About the 1886 Food and Wine Experience:
In the early days, Dr. Konstantin Frank won the hearts of wine consumers not just for his incredible viticulture innovations but for the one-on-one personal tasting experiences he provided. In the early years, the winery didn’t have a formal tasting room. In those days, Konstantin invited visitors onto the front porch of his home overlooking Keuka Lake, where they would spend time savoring his wines enjoying conversation and most importantly, learning. Often times these visits included Eugenia’s culinary treats to pair with the wines.
50 years later these visitors still remember the personal wine tasting experiences that they had with Konstantin and his wife Eugenia. Our 1886 Food and Wine Experience brings us back to our roots. Back to the days at the winery when every tasting was personal. When visitors could take their time, learn savor our wines and experience the Frank family legacy firsthand.
