My boyfriend is from up state NY and raves about Dr. Frank wines, particularly Semi-dry Reisling. There's only one distributor in MA and it's quite far. Any feedback? Worth the drive?
Its a longish drive from Boston, but the scenery by the lake Keuka is wonderful - make a weekend of it and stay in a B&B - we love the Fingerlakes area and Dr. Frank has the best wine.
Check it out.
I have had that particular wine and it is very enjoyable. I would say take the trip, there are worse ways to spend a day !
We fell in love with both their Reisling and Gewurztraminer. For sure it's worth the trip as there are many other nice wineries in the area. We've done the wine trails on both Lake Keuka and Lake Seneca. This link can give you a sense of other places to visit, places to stay, etc. You won't be driving from MA for just one winery. (Sorry, is my enthusiasm showing?!)
We've also had this wine (though not visited the winery). The wine is lovely and given Frank's position as one of the first to plant in the region, I'd make a trip if I were in the area.
