HAMMONDSPORT, N.Y. (WENY) - Doctor Konstantin Frank Winery will be taking home some hardware.

On Friday, the winery won the prestigious USA Today 10Best awards for best winery tour for its 1886 food and wine experience.

"When we started the 1886 Food and Wine Experience 8 years ago, we weren't sure what the reception would be. The idea of an educational and intimate food and wine pairing experience was rare if non-existent at the time in the region," stated 4th Generation Vintner Meaghan Frank. "It is really validating to receive this award and it is a testament to our incredible team who works so hard to make this a great experience for our customers."

According to Dr. Frank's website, each day features a different vineyard or winemaking experience paired with wines. After the tour, guests are served a flight of wines paired with small bites.

It's the second consecutive year that the winery won this prestigious award, both in 2022 and in 2023. The winery also won #3 Best Wine Tasting Room in America in the 2023 USA Today 10Best Awards.

"We are grateful to our many winery fans who voted for us in the USA Today 10 Best Readers' Choice Awards. We are delighted to have been named #1 Best Winery Tour and #3 Best Wine Tasting Room in the USA.," stated 3rd Generation Owner Frederick Frank. "These awards are a testament to our great winery team and loyal fans."
