Dr. Konstantin Frank forever changed the palate of American wine. Forced from his home in Soviet Ukraine during World War II, he was astounded by the terroir when he arrived in the Finger Lakes region. Against popular notions, he believed that the vinifera grapes that produced some of Europe s and California s finest wines would prosper in New York. He proved his detractors wrong, and by sharing his knowledge freely with others, Konstantin s innovativeness has allowed the region to produce some of the world s finest Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and other varietals. Four generations of Franks have continued his legacy, and their winery has won record numbers of prestigious awards every year. Oenophile Tom Russ presents the remarkable story of Dr. Konstantin Frank, the father of Finger Lakes wine."Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Tom RussPublisher: History Press Library EditionsPublished: 06/22/2015ISBN: 9781540211941Pages: 162Weight: 0.85lbsSize: 9.00h x 6.00w x 0.44d
