2019 Ravines Wine Cellars Dry Riesling, Finger Lakes, New York, USA

This is the perfect introduction to dry Riesling from Finger Lakes. The aromas provide inviting aromas of lime, peach, flint, fennel and charred pineapple. A beautiful and succulent, dry riesling that shows terrific balance and tension.



Winemaker Morten Hallgren has 32 years of experience, the last 20 in the Finger Lakes, developing and refining a style of wine that’s true to his values, education and this unique sense of place.

We make cool-climate wines using the same principles as the great regions of Burgundy, Bordeaux and Champagne. Morten and our team embraces mother nature’s variability, producing expressive wines of balance and distinction, vintage after vintage.


When Morten and Lisa started Ravines in 2001, they were the only winery in the Finger Lakes with a Winemaker holding a formal degree and training from Europe and a winery pursuing a traditional winemaking approach – making exclusively dry, vinifera wines. Ravines quickly became regarded as a top wine destination in the Eastern USA and has consistently gained national awards, noteworthy press, high scores and international accolades.

Morten also pioneered the bone-dry, mineral-tinged Riesling style that has since become the flagship Finger Lakes wine to critical acclaim. In addition to Ravines success with dry white wines, they are also heralded for top terroir-driven red and refined, methode champenoise sparkling wines. The winery has grown significantly through the last 18 years, and while small on an international scale, Ravines owns 130 acres of prime estate vineyards, operates two tasting rooms year-round and holds many wine & food pairing events for their guests and wine club members, courtesy of the onsite Ravinous Kitchen.

Thankfully, the Hallgrens arrived in the Finger Lakes at the right time, and soon had “cherry-picked” the best vineyard sites for making Ravines wines. These same vineyard sites still make up 100% of their wines made today, a provenance of grapes that they have gained familiarity and experience with over the last 9 – 18 years.
