1886 Food & Wine Experience | Méthode Champenoise Experience (every Sat & Sun in May)

  • Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery 9749 Middle Road Hammondsport, NY, 14840 United States (map)

Our first 1886 Food and Wine Experience of the year is our popular Méthode Champenoise Experience. 

A behind-the-scenes look of our rich history of sparkling winemaking. The tour will begin with an explanation of our estate vineyards focusing on the classic Champagne grapes Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. The tour continues underground to our historic cellar built in 1886. Here you will learn the process of méthode Champenoise including bottling, aging, and disgorgment while tasting through several examples of our sparkling wines. At the conclusion of the tour, a seated flight of wines are paired with the chef’s seasonal bites where you taste our remaining sparkling wines and still wines produced by Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. 

Available Saturday 2 PM and Sunday 2 PM in May.
