Dr. Konstantin Frank is credited with being the first to upgrade Canandaigua area wine with the introduction of higher quality European varietals. There is a nice tasting room with a good range of wines produced from their own vineyard. Worth a visit.

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.
