Ravines just got better! We are pleased to announce the addition of the vineyards and winery at White Springs Farm to the Ravines Wine Cellars family. In a deal closed earlier this year, Ravines acquired the White Springs production facility, along with 42 acres of vineyards at the Geneva site and an additional 19 acres not yet under vine.
The deal was an acquisition of assets, not a merging of the two brands. White Springs owner Carl Fribolin maintained ownership of the White Springs brand and the White Springs tasting room located on State Route 14. Ravines will continue to make wine for White Springs, as we have already been doing for the past few years.
The addition of the vineyards is especially exciting for Ravines explains winemaker, Morten Hallgren, "With its proximity to the extension of the Niagara escarpment, it sits on calcareous soil with pH values between 7 and 8. Our first impression is that riesling, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, and gewürztraminer will stand out."
"The vineyards at White Springs are exquisite and the production facility is unrivaled in this region. This will be the third year we have produced our wines here in this facility and we couldn't be happier." - Morten Hallgren, Winemaker
