Absolutely beautiful
Sep. 2020 • Couples
My husband and I really enjoyed the wonderful view you get outside during the wine tasting at Ravine. The prettiest we’ve seen when we went to NOTL in September 2020. The customer service was good. We did have to wait a little longer at times to get our wines; however, they were pretty busy considering COVID and keeping things clean does take time! I would rather wait knowing the the areas are being properly cleaned between customers. Also, the wines were great! Reasonable prices. Overall, would definitely recommend!

Wonderful Tasting, Poor Customer Experience
Sep. 2020 • Couples
It was our first time coming to this winery. This was our second stop. We had to pay in advance which isn't terrible but it was the only winery on our list we had to do so. We were so excited because all the reviews and instagram photos seemed amazing! The parking lot was packed so it a few minutes to find a space. We then proceeded to the tasting entrance which has a small sign that said go to the grey building. On the way to the grey building we noticed a table with people which we thought was for the resturaunt but we noticed it was check in for tasting as well. We checked in and the first thing the man said was "you're late so we are going to have to rush your tasting". At this point we we were 5 minutes late to our tasting. We ignored the unwelcoming remark and proceeded to our lovely tasting. She was excellent - very patient, knowledgeable and was also from our home town! We bought a few hundred dollars in total and got our tasting fee waived. While we were waiting for our wine purchases the same man came up to us and asked us to wait inside. A server quickly said or you can sit at another table and enjoy the grounds. He quickly said "oh ya you can do that too". I am so disappointed with the lack of welcoming from this individual. I know people have bad days and I understand we were 5 minutes late but it was our first time there and we were just figuring out how to navigate the grounds. I am so disappointed since all the other staff worked hard to make it a welcoming experience but this individual instead of welcoming us on our first outing out during COVID, made our experience start AND end on a sour note. Please be patient with guests - especially when you have signs around to try and navigate them. I would recommend next time this individual says welcome, ask us have we been there before and proceed with the protocols.

Unfortunate deterioration of a previously excellent restaurant
Aug. 2020
I have eaten at this restaurant many many times in the past - always leaving with a happy feeling. This time was so different. They claim that it’s because of Covid-19 that the menu has been dumbed down and slashed. The “Covid-19” safe service was disturbingly inconsistent, the food cold and greasy. The restaurant is now a field of picnic tables under an oversized umbrella. If you’re expecting to find the old high quality Ravine restaurant, forget it. It is now a very different place.

Hello, It is unfortunate that we did not meet your expectations. Ravine has opted to provide only outdoor service for the dining and tasting experiences as this has proven to be the safest method to gather for our valued guests and staff team during this pandemic. Shade was also necessary in the open area. We have provided entertainment as well as a casual outdoor picnic feel with sanitized spaces. We will continue to do our best to keep the public and our staff as safe as possible but understand this comes with some differences from the old 'normal'. We do hope to see you perhaps when we return to safer times.

A beautiful venue with excellent wines.
Aug. 2020
Though I have been to many wineries in the NOTL area, this was our first visit to Ravine Vineyards. It was our last stop of 5 on this weekend trip.

The venue is rather expansive and the gently rolling hills of the vineyard are very pretty. Our tasting menu was rather good providing many options for the discerning palates of our group. Our server was knowledgable and very pleasant.

The one drawback- and something I have never experienced at a winery here or abroad- is that all of our tastings were served from the same glass. Given the precautions necessary for COVID, the social distancing was done well, the lack of 'available glasses' ( as we were told) was very odd and quite honestly is contrary to how I like to do my tasting flights.

We sampled 4 wines, of which two ( rose and chardonnay) we did purchase a couple of bottles of each ... so clearly, despite the glass faux pas, didn't stop us from enjoying them.

Consistently excellent
Aug. 2020 • Family
Been here many times before but last night was the first time during Covid under the massive tent. The menu is reduced to just 6 or 7 items but everything is excellent.
Service is awesome as always, atmosphere chill and relaxed! Will recommend always! This place is a little hidden gem! Enjoy!

A gem of a place - AMAZING! 5*****
Mar. 2020 • Couples
We loved our visit. The most welcoming lovely people who know their wines. We enjoyed the wine tasting, then enjoyed the best charcuterie board with a glass of our favourite wine. In the sunshine Maria took us on a walking wine tour telling us the history of the estate and family, whilst sipping wine. A perfect place to visit.

Wine Tasting Visit
Mar. 2020
Four of us stopped in while on an Organic Wine tour of NOTL. While Ravine doesn't sell 'certified organic' wines, they do use organic grapes in their process.
Friendly knowledgeable staff, nice selection of wine on a lovely property. Definitely worth a visit.

Make a reso, worth the wait

Exquisit dining experience at ravine. Delicious wine, amazing food - the gnocchi, risotto and frittata were great, the tuna was amazing. I was not happy when our food was taking too long and our server really turned up a notch and gave us a wine refill. Allergy accommodating, I recommend making a reservation
