CIA of Grapes: Dr. Konstantin Franck

We teased the story of the mysterious historical figure who is single handedly responsible for turning The Finger Lakes into the wine mecca that it is in back in the episode, 'Frasier of Grapes'. Today we deliver the goods and give you the whole story as we recount the cinema-worthy life of the great Dr. Konstantin Franck. So sit back, relax, and enjoy some booze flavored history. Cheers!
This is the story of Dr. Konstantin Franck, the man heavily responsible for making cold weather grape growing possible. If you enjoyed this episode consider buying us a beer on our Patreon at And definitely check out the resources we used to make this story:
