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!
