Perched above a sinuous, riverlike Finger Lake, lovely vineyards as far as the eye could see—this just might be the Rhineland’s westernmost outpost. No wonder visionary Dr. Frank thought he could make a go of Riesling in upstate New York. We loved nearly every wine...More

I honestly don’t know what all the hype is about. Very boring wines. My opinion is there are many other great smaller Finger Lakes wineries who don’t get enough recognition. #momoneymoproblems #sowhatyouretheoldest #notthebest

I visited here in September while at a conference in Corning. I was blown away by the depth of knowledge of wine here. The wines are amazing and the tasting experience is like no other. Well Done and Highly Recommended!

We scheduled the 1886 food and wine experience and where throughly glad we did! The food was fantastic, and the wine was the best in all the Finger Lakes region! If you like California wines, I think you will be very pleased with their wines....More

Nice tasting room experience but on checkout the salesperson was cranky and showed lack of customer service skills and appreciation of people spending hundreds of dollars. Rude. Short grey hair.

They offer a free tasting, which is rare!! However, it is worth the $10 to purchase the 6 tastings of premium wines. We started off with Fred Frank, grandson of Constantine, who was an absolute delight. He is very knowledgeable about the wines, the industry,...More

Thank your visiting us! Definitely try our 1962 Reserve Tasting next time. It's less structured and allows you to choose your own path.

Yes but don’t Allie inside the winery unless guide dogs. They have outside seating and will serve you there, if a weekend should do in advance call and arrange. During the week will make it work.

The folks at the tasting gave us the names of two local restaurants which were excellent for dinner or lunch. Ask the vineyard folks because I can't remember the names.....
