Excellent wine choices, whether you like dry, semi dry or whatever. The best part is that the wine tasting is FREE. this is the only winery, that I know of, that's like that.

I am not much of a wine drinker but their wine was wonderful. Our wine sample hostess was extremely knowledgeable about the history of this winery and of every wine we sampled. The pours we generously and we left with 6 bottles.

A must stop for wine tasting and purchase of fine NY State wine and champagne. Guarantee to surprise and delight you. If you are out of state, you may want to consider joining their wine club.

The ambiance at Dr. Franks is understated and simple the wines that we tasted were very good ( good enough for a purchase) Our guide was entertaining and very helpful. I would recommend Dr. Franks winery to be in your wine tasting tour.

There is not good at this excellent winery, but there is a very good restaurant at Bully Hill, which is about a ten minute drive from Dr. Frank's.
