The unique and organic 34-acre family-owned winery is over 100 years old and is located in the warmest sub-area of the Niagara region. It has been passed down from one generation to the next since David Jackson Lowrey, the current owner’s great grandfather, purchased the property in 1867. The Ravine vintages mostly consist of Chardonnay-based wines, as it is the top growing grape in the region. They also produce award-winning ice wines.
The estate is also home to the 200-year-old Loyalist Georgian Wm. Woodruff House, one of the most architecturally significant ancestral homes of Canada. There is also an organic restaurant with seasonal menus sourced at the on-site farm, where the Lowrey family grows their own produce and raises their own livestock.
Ravine Vineyard Estate Winery is located in St. Davids in Ontario, Canada. It is located 10 kilometers from Niagara Falls and can be reached in just 15 minutes via Queen Elizabeth Way and York Road. It is open daily from 10am to 6pm, aside from December 25-26 and January 1. Tours are offered daily at both 12pm and 4pm. There is a special 60-minute Chardonnay Tour offered at 3pm on Saturdays and Sundays for $10 per person including tastings.
