For 19 years, this grape has put us on the map.
Wine Spectator awarded different bottlings of our Dry Rieslings as top 100 Wines in the World in 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2016. NY Times wine critic, Eric Asimov has raved, “... New York Rieslings don’t come any better than those from Ravines.” Different for a reason.

100% estate grown from our 16 Falls vineyard. A beautiful, secluded, sloping site with great afternoon sun exposure that sits next to the deepest waters of Seneca Lake. This 2nd straight single vineyard Dry Riesling is powerful, mineral driven and zippy. An age-worthy expression that melds lime, apricot and a floral bouquet. 93 points, Wine & Spirits Magazine
The NY Times’ Eric Asimov described a previous vintage of this wine as the “Best American Riesling I’ve ever tasted.” An expressive and vibrant wine from the old vines and sloping limestone soils of the famous Argetsinger Vineyard on the southeastern edge of Seneca Lake. 95 points Decatner, 94 pts Wine & Spirits, 92 Points - Wine Spectator, 91+ points - Wine Advocate, all rated in June, 2021
Our first ever Dry Riesling that was not raised in exclusively stainless steel! Our estate Riesling fruit was aged in our 2000-liter Austrian casks for ten months before bottling. Hints of cashew and butterscotch intertwine with lemon, orange marmalade and nectarine. You'll still note the classic minerality, acidity and lift of a classic Ravines Dry Riesling, but it finishes with more weight and softness. A Chardonnay lovers Dry Riesling that will pair well with butter poached halibut or chicken cordon-bleu.
Large format 1500ml bottles are great for gatherings and also allow extended cellar aging. Written up as a wine to try in the New York Times in April of 2021 by wine columnist Eric Asimov!
"The Finger Lakes is the best source for riesling in the United States. Of all the Finger Lakes rieslings I know and like, I can’t think of a better one than the Ravines Argetsinger Vineyard cuvée. This is not the only riesling made by the husband-and-wife team of Morten and Lisa Hallgren. Their basic dry riesling, at $18 or so, is a great deal. But the limestone slope of the Argetsinger Vineyard, on the southeastern shore of Seneca Lake, produces grapes with extra length, depth and resonance. If you can find a bottle, treat yourself."
Large format magnums (1500ml bottles) are great for gatherings and also allow extended cellar aging.
