About Ravines Wine Cellars

We are a small, family-owned winery in the Finger Lakes wine region of New York State, dedicated to the craft of fine, classical winemaking; wines that express the unique qualities of the vineyard sites, growing season and the winemaker’s seasoned vision.

Read More

Ravines Wine Cellars makes dry, classical, terroir-driven wines on over 130 acres of estate vineyards. Founded in 2001 and family-owned and operated ever since by Morten and Lisa Hallgren, Morten was raised and trained as an oenologist / winemaker in Provence and Bordeaux France, before moving to the region and pioneering the bone-dry, mineral-tinged riesling style that the region is now famous for. Ravines utilizes minimal intervention in the cellar and employs sustainable winegrowing practices on steep-sloping vineyards with limestone and shalestone soils. Their wines have continually gained noteworthy press and international accolades as a standard-bearer Finger Lakes winery.

The server did not explain any of the wines and put them on the table and walked away. When it came time to pitch the wine club she said “I’m not sure your income or what you can afford...” likely because we were 26-30 years old.
