"One of the stars in the region, Ravines makes everything well, including the reds. This was a stunning group, perhaps led by the amazing sparkler at a great price." - Mark Squires, Robert Parker's the Wine Advocate in July 2019, (giving all 8 wines he reviewed 90+ points)
Vibrant crimson in color with a bright, inviting nose of red and black currants. Seductive and layered on the palate with juicy plum, red and green pepper, tart strawberry and hints of violets. Silky tannins, black cherries and cloves form a herbaceous finish.
Ravines Dry Riesling 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.
The White Springs Vineyard is a unique site with protected slopes of limestone soil. This Riesling is an elegant, dry style with delicate aromatics, distinct minerality and vibrant acidity.

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 sloping limestone soils on the southeastern edge of Seneca Lake.
