|Wine maker notes
|Ravines Meritage is our blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. At Ravines, we are able to
produce this wine as a classic, balanced and age-worthy style. As most wine regions tend to produce higher alcohol, jammy fruit, low acid and oaky wines from this variety, the Finger Lakes present a refreshing alternative.
While it requires taking risks in the vineyard, we are able to create wines combining all of the assets of the Finger Lakes: intense fruit, nice acidity, moderate alcohol, soft texture, and a broad palate of aromas.
|In 1848, Rabbi Mordechai Avraham Shor, head of Tifereth Israel Yeshiva, and his son, Rabbi Yitzchak Shor, established a winery to serve the growing Ashkanazi population in Jerusalem. The western wall of the winery was formed by a part of the Wailing Wall. Rabbi Yitzchak warned people against touching the wall, and placed wine barrels along the wall to protect it.
In 1925, the winery was moved out of the Old City, into the Bet Israel neighborhood. in 1982, the business was transferred to Mishor Adumim, where Zvika Shor is now the current winemaker, continuing the tradition from father to son, father to son.
