While visiting the Finger Lakes we tried probably a dozen wineries - this was hands down our favorite. Join the wine club AND shipped 12 bottles home! Great tour from Bob as part of the wine and food pairing. Was thrilled with the tour and the wine, only disappointed with the food pairings. Knowing the property is co-run by a chef and for the price of the tasting I expected more than cheese and meat. That said, it's a must visit winery

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.

After visiting Ravines on Keuka Lake several years ago and bringing home some excellent wines, my husband and I wanted to visit their Geneva location while staying on Seneca Lake. We were not disappointed and enjoyed our tasting at this charming barn setting. Once again, we came home with several bottles of their red wines. Try their Cab Franc and Maximillien - you won't be disappointed.

This was our second visit to Ravines. First of all, the tasting room in the barn is really lovely. The wood ceiling is gorgeous, the lighting is trendy and stylish, the seating areas are cozy and comfortable. Really nice wines-we especially enjoyed the Sparkling Brut and the Dry Pinot Rose. They have a very nice food menu that provided some nice bites to accompany our wine. Lucy, who ended up serving us, was very nice and pleasant-she saved the day.

The young woman who eventually acknowledged us after an uncomfortable wait (yes, we had a reservation made weeks in advance) couldn’t have been less friendly or welcoming. While she did put a food order in for us, she never asked us about our wine selections or stopped back once-she just said there was a welcome wine that she never brought. She didn’t smile nor did she return to our table. Lucy brought our food out (we still had nothing to drink) so we asked if we should place an order for the wines we wanted to try at the bar. She apologized that we’d not been helped and immediately brought us a welcome wine while submitting our other selections. If not for her, we’d have left.

We enjoy a welcoming tasting room and the opportunity to learn about how a winery sources/grows their grapes as well as understanding their process, etc. We didn’t have the opportunity to get any of that this time unfortunately. As a result of our (lack of) experience, we’ve taken Ravines off our list of places to visit on our annual trip to the Finger Lakes. Hopefully they’ll add more staff like Lucy who are pleasant and helpful to their guests.

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.

My wife and I along with our daughter and boyfriend had selected some wineries to explore in the Finger Lakes region. We've had Ravines wine in the past and decided to reserve a tasting session with them.
From start to finish it was an enjoyable experience. We enjoyed the wines and the discussion with staff members.

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.

Ravines was recommended for us to try by our server from another vineyard- we are so glad we did.
A beautiful countrified drive back to this vineyard, you are greeted by rows of fruit trees down a long country road. The tasting barn is big and beautiful along with the outdoor seating area.
While without a reservation, we were warmly greeted and seated for a tasting. Our server (a grad student and so sweet) walked us through our tasting with some great information. We happened to be there when a number of wine critics were there as well- this did not deter the staff from taking care of us.
A beautiful location, delicious wines (loved the Riesling that we were greeted with!) along with a great location! Would definitely recommend!

This is a wonderful winery with excellent wines. The wines are a bit higher priced than others, but very tasty. The gentleman that served us was very knowledgable in wines and was able to direct us to wines we really enjoyed. We, my wife and I, enjoyed every single wine we tried. As a bonus, the view was incredible.

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!
