Ravines Wine Cellars is a boutique winery on the eastern slopes of Keuka Lake, combines Old World winemaking traditions with New World innovation. Morten is a European winemaker/oenologist, and his wife Lisa is a chef/foodie. Morten grew up around wines, as his family owned and operated Domaine de Castel Roubine, a 270-acre estate with 170 acres of vineyards in the South of France. Morten and Lisa purchased a 17-acre parcel of Finger Lakes land in 2000. Located at the widest part of Keuka Lake, the winery is situated between two deep ravines, the winery's namesake, that drain cold air from the land during the winter. The wine tasting room opened in spring 2003, and two months later, Ravines won Best Dry Riesling in the 2003 World Riesling Cup at the Eastern International Wine Competition for the 2002 Dry Riesling. Ravines is dedicated to producing crafted and elegant food-friendly Finger Lakes wines. It has won many medals in international wine competitions and has received glowing reviews in wine publications. Lisa has prepared a seasonal delight for visitors to the tasting room: a schedule of food and wine paring events.
