Dr. Frank Riesling Featured on the Today Show

On a December 29, 2011 episode of NBC’s popular, “Today Show”, Dr. Frank’s 2010 Dry Riesling was identified as a Finger Lakes wine to look to in 2012. The show special called, “Cakes, pickles and the next great city: Top food trends for 2012,” identifies a variety of trends for the coming year including wines outside of California.In the coinciding article published on the Today Show’s website, the Finger Lakes wine region is mentioned as a regional trend for 2012. Specifically, the article notes that, “All the success of California wines has left little room in the conversation for the wines of the rest of America. In 2012, that’s going to change. The wine-growing and wine-making regions of Virginia, North Carolina, the north shore of Long Island and the Finger Lakes in upstate New York are coming into their own and creating wines that are, in certain cases, just as good as wines coming out of California.” Of the Dr. Frank Dry Riesling, the article says, “To wit: the exquisite Dr. Frank’s Riesling from the Finger Lakes region is a fruity, floral delight.”Dr. Konstantin Frank Vinifera Wine Cellars, often associated with the production of world-class Rieslings, has been garnering accolades and international acclaim since its founder, Dr. Konstantin Frank, helped pioneer the introduction of the European vitis vinifera grapevines in the eastern United States. Located on Keuka Lake a few miles north of Hammondsport, Dr. Konstantin Frank Vinifera Wine Cellars continues as New York’s most award-winning winery since 1962.For more information, please contact Frederick Frank at (800) 320-0735 or visit the website at www.drfrankwines.com.
