Brad Coelho – Unidentified Appellation – Ravines Wine Cellars, One of the Finger Lakes’ Finest

“While Morten’s chromosomal connection is undeniable, his scholastic route, achieving advanced degrees in Enology & Viticulture at Ecole Nationale Superieure d’Agronomie in Montpellier didn’t hurt.”

Quentin Sadler – Quentin Salder’s Wine Page – Finger Lakes New York, part 4, Keuka Lake

“These were world class wines and showed a level of winemaking skill and vision that was breathtaking, I look forward to watching what happens at this superb little estate in the future.”

Stephen Meuse – Boston Globe – Plonk of the Month: Domestic Policy

“Ravines Keuka Village Finger Lakes White Wine 2008 Featherweight tart-crisp vignoles-cayuga (hybrid) blend; delightfully breezy sip with a scant 12 degrees of alcohol and picnic written all over it.”

Brian Kirby - The Other 46 – In a New York State of Mind

“I know, I know, another post on New York wine.  What can I say, I’m in a New York State of mind, especially after tasting the Ravines 2007 Cabernet Franc.  A wine like this makes me want to rename my website TheOther47.com or better yet, EastoftheWestCoast.com.  You never know what the future holds…”

Lenn Thompson – New York Cork Report – The New York Cork Club’s June 2010 Selections

“Ravines Wine Cellars 2008 Pinot Rose : The Ravines is 100% pinot noir and offers nice floral character to go with orange-grapefruit, watermelon and cherry fruit flavors. Showing a subtle silkiness to go with fresh acidity, it stays true to pinot noir.”
