A quality experience
May 2021 • Solo
My husband and I were very impressed with our recent visit to this winery. The wines were delicious and high quality. The barn is decorated in a manner that is both cutting edge sophisticated and warmly inviting. Patrons have a choice of a tasting room, a sit down experience or a bar. The food menu is diverse and appetizing. The staff, especially Lauren and Maren, were professional, accommodating and attentive. They made our afternoon most enjoyable.

Tasting for two
Feb 2021 • Couples
The staff were very friendly, accommodating and safety conscious. Atmosphere was great (rustic and warm)! Loved the award-winning dry riesling and bought a bottle to bring back to our hotel room. Very little going on in town during our cold, snowy getaway in Feb. Grateful for something to do! Thanks Ravines!

Wonderful Experience
Nov 2020
This was our first stop on an day long wine tasting adventure with chauffeur driving us around. The wines here were wonderful with our favorite being the Maximillian Red. Experience made better by their having heat lamps! Thank goodness! Surrounding swere pretty, plenty of space in the tasting room, knowledgeable staff. It was a great start to a great day!

Wines were decent. Views were very pretty. Took a bit to get our Covid baguette and service was a little slow.

A MUST Visit Winery (and dog-friendly)
Sep 2020 • Couples
We have visited the Finger Lakes for over a decade now, not always consistently but every few years - one thing that is consistent is our love of Ravines Wine Cellars in Geneva on Lake Seneca (there are two locations this is a review of the one listed in Geneva). What I love most is just the ambiance of it all - a beautifully decorated barn that serves as the tasting room and kitchen, outdoor tents for additional seating, and a designated seating-area if you want to bring a four-legged friend. The tapas-style food pairs perfectly with the wines, and the setting back off the main road feels like you’re truly away from it all and able to just enjoy the amazing wines they craft here. It is also an idyllic place for a vineyard wedding. No matter what part of the Finger Lakes we stay in we ALWAYS make a trip to Ravines, and we always stock up on their amazing wines after our tasting and flights! Tasting reservations HIGHLY recommended if going in 2020 during these Covid times.... but we had no problem getting a reservation just call ahead!

Nice building, good wine, outdoor seating
Sep 2020 • Couples
We liked the wine. Good flavor, reasonable prices, and a great baguette.

Our server was fairly new and did not seem to know a lot about the wine or winery.

This is in Riesling country and that was the best wine they offered.

Cool building and setting the winery is in.

They require RSVP. Not sure why. We learned that from the sign out by the road. We were a party of 2 and called from the parking lot. They were able to take care of us.

Hi- Thank you for your review! We're very happy that you joined us and enjoyed your time at our Geneva tasting room, overlooking our White Springs Vineyard. Due to the unusual nature of this summer, we've just been able to hire some additional tasting room staff and we're working to train them as fast as we can so that we can provide excellent, attentive and informative service. The reason that we have gone to RSVP only (it's easy to make a reservation for either of our tasting rooms and order food pairing plates in advance on our website RavinesWine.com) is to be able to keep our guests and staff safe by controlling the customer capacity at all times during this period of social distancing, where we only have so many tables and staff to serve everyone.

Great Winery
Aug 2020
Ravine's winery produces excellent dry wine. I am a member of their wine club and, would strongly recommend joining if you enjoy their wine. Their tasting fees are fair but waived for you and friends if you're a club member. Their wine prices are a little below the norm for the region. But the member discount makes it a great price. Their Riesling and Cabernet Franc are 2 of my favorites. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. They have 2 locations one on Seneca and one on Keuka. The food from the Geneva location is excellent also.

Worth the drive off the beaten path
Jul 2020
Beautiful location, that led to a very professional tasting. I understand most vineyards are trying to be contactless, but I felt like other than the one other table doing a tasting our sommelier was out of sight. Would be nice to have someone to answer our questions. That being said the wines were very good, I liked the Cerise. I would recommend visiting Ravines I understand the distance thing is out of their hands and in no way reflects the quality of the wine served here. Would like to visit again under 'normal' tasting conditions.

Impressively different
Dec 2019
The winery is located in an old, reclaimed dairy barn. The tasting room was set up very nicely but can only handle smaller groups during the winter months. They can accommodate larger groups during the warmer months as the main tasty area is open and over looks the vineyard. The driveway is long and a dirt road so be prepared to drive slow. The selections are all dry to semi dry. Most were enjoyable but I found the Ayre to be fantastic. They also produce a sparkling wine that is Brut. I was surprised at the smoothness of this wine.

Hi Bruce- Thank you for your review! We do have a small area of 100 year old, renovated slate barn tasting room that is heated / AC, and the rest that is for summer events and groups that was to taste in open air, as we open up the large barn doors so you can overlook the vineyards. Almost all of our wines are dry in style, except for our Late Harvest (dessert) wine, and the Ayre, which is a semi-sweet, lightly sparkling wine. Glad you enjoyed it!
