Please welcome our new wine label that hails from our winery and vineyards on Keuka Lake across the "ravine" from Ravines. The name is an homage to the hard-working people in the vineyards and fields. It is a reminder that wine is an agricultural product that needs to be planted, cultivated, tended to and harvested before it is made into wine and put into the bottle. The vineyard workers are often pruning in the snow during March, then tying vines in April; they move on to wire work and shoot thinning as summer begins, then dropping clusters to adjust crop loads in the heat of the summer, as well as doing all of the hand-harvesting of fruit in the fall. So…let’s all raise a glass to the Agricolāe!
Pinot Noir, with about 10% Gamay Noir, all from our Keuka Lake Vineyard site. Ethereal nose of ripe cherries, crushed violets and rasberry marmalade. The palate is balanced and juicy with no hard edges but still some grip and spice. The wine finishes succulent and a bit savory, with a lasting freshness.
A favorite of longtime Ravines fans, It was previously known as the Keuka Village White, which we first made in 2002. A blend of Cayuga, a Cornell developed grape and Vignoles, a French-American Hybrid, which we blend into an off-dry, easy-drinking wine.
A bright, dry blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and 6% Muscat Ottonel, an Alsatian variety. Citrus, melon and delicate floral aromas with a rounded mouth feel.
Beautiful aromatics of white peach, lime pith and tangerine. Fleshy, dry and refreshing with a lingering mineral finish.
Lovely orchard and stone fruits intermingle, along with a round palate of guava, yellow pepper and complimenting acidity. These are the last grapes from the 16-Falls vineyard before the old vines were torn out, making it the final example you'll find of a cool-climate Pinot Gris from that site.
A balanced and lively Chardonnay that was aged for 12 months in 100% neutral French Oak barrels. Tropical fruit, toasted almonds and poached pear gives way to vibrant acidity and long, mineral-driven finish.
A fruity blend of Noiret (hybrid) and Cabernet Franc. Ripe red fruit and a distinct peppery finish create a fresh, un-oaked and casual wine.
