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.
A beautiful and succulent, dry riesling that shows terrific balance and tension from the integrated acidity.
Expressive, mineral driven and immensely bright in this vintage with citrus, floral and flinty components. From old vines on steeply sloping limestone soil, the wine is quite accessible in its youth, but with tremendous aging potential. Elegant, pure and savory notes on the long finish. 96 points, Decanter Magazine, where MW, Charles Curtis deemed this wine "Perhaps America's preeminent Riesling."
The White Springs Vineyard is a unique site with protected slopes and limestone soil. In 2020, this Dry Riesling shows tangerine, juicy peach and flinty notes. An elegant wine with focused minerality and vibrant acidity. 92 points Wine Spectator.
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.
A beautiful, sloping site with great afternoon sun; this single vineyard Dry Riesling is powerful, mineral driven and zippy. An age-worthy expression that melds lime, apricot and a floral bouquet. 93 pts Wine & Spirits
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."
