enjoyed visiting Ravines. There was some minor confusion with our premade reservation conflicting with an event they had, but they handled it with no problem at all and we were able to enjoy our tasting in privacy.

This was by far the best wine tasting experience we've had in the Keuka/Seneca area. I made a reservation online and we were immediately seated for our 45 min tasting, which ended up lasting longer because the lady who was "hosting" us was lovely to talk to and we loved the wines so ended up ordering more beyond the tasting. Very knowledgeable and pleasant. Maximillien red wine was our favorite so we left with few bottles. Absolutely recommend!

Ravines was one of the five wineries we visited in the Finger Lakes. After tastings their Riesling and hearing a little of their story, I researched more info on this gem - very interesting. Their expertise definitely shows in the quality of their wine. I would recommend putting this winery on any list of wineries to visit.

When we visited this winery there was only one lady doing the tastings. There were probably 10-12 people at the tasting bar and she was trying to make sure she gave the "whole experience" and description of each wine and pairings, etc. She was unable to keep up with that amount of people. I think she could have cut the descriptions a bit & moved on so everyone was better served. There are windows across the front of the winery overlooking Keuka Lake across the street. The winery sits high up on a hill so the view is really nice. Getting into the building could be an issue for some people. The main entrance had probably 8-10 stairs to climb up to enter the main tasting room. It does look like there are doors in the lower part of the building that open out onto the gravel picnic table area, but I don't know if there is an elevator to get upstairs or not. The wines were ok. Not bad - not great. Not sure we would go back here.

Hi Heather- Thank you for your review and feedback. We strive to provide excellent service, both as it relates to the tasting experience and the ability to provide relevant info and answer questions about our wines, vineyards, the region, etc. There is certainly a balance necessary when you have a large group of people, and we always try to have enough staff to be able to accommodate a full tasting room. Our apologies if it did not happen on this day last fall. We are now by reservation only, partially because of COVID-19, but also because it allows us to handle the right capacity more easily and provide a better guest experience, including seated tastings where you're served as an individual group. At Keuka, we do have an easy tasting option for anyone who is not able to use stairs, offering outdoor patio tastings and insides tastings downstairs in our Tasting Room. The only time we can't offer both of these is during the winter months. While our wines are highly regarded, we do understand that they are in a dry, classical style (our winemaker / co-owner was raised and trained in France) and these can be different from many other Finger Lakes wineries.

They did their best to accomodate our large group, but we still felt a little bit like cattle. The wines were good, although I think other wineries have better wines across the board. The view was fantastic, so stop and get a glass of wine and sit outside.

Hi- Thanks for your review as we always appreciate feedback. We focus on making dry, classical styled wines and are structured for smaller group tastings. Our winemaker was raised and trained in France so our wines do taste differently from many others in the Finger Lakes. Normally we don't allow groups of over 6 because of our small staff and intimate tasting rooms. That said, we always want to improve for all types of groups so will keep your comments in mind.
