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.
Bright flavors of lime, peach, flint, fennel and charred pineapple. A beautiful and succulent, dry riesling that shows terrific balance and tension from the integrated acidity. 90 points, Wine Spectator, rated June 2021
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.
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. 92 Points - Wine Spectator, 91+ points - Wine Advocate, both rated in June, 2021
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."
The White Springs Vineyard is a unique site with protected slopes of limestone soil.

Ravines Dry Riesling Magnum is a unique and elegant expression of the Finger Lakes terroir. The bouquet of the wine is delicate with intricate aromas of white flowers mingled with pear, apple and citrus notes followed by a lingering mineral finish and a vibrant acidity. 90 points, Wine Advocate
