150 Years

Ravine Vineyard Estate Winery is a timeless destination that is steeped in family legacy and agricultural heritage. In its current incarnation, our fifth generation family farm is home to our organic vineyards and winery, award-winning culinary experiences, sprawling kitchen garden and grocery, distinctive event venues, community gatherings, and more. Through the generations of the Lowrey-Harber family who have proudly farmed this land since 1867, Ravine offers our guests ever-evolving experiences, providing a fabric of tastes, scenes and sounds across our 34 acres of beautiful rolling vineyard in the historic village of St. Davids, Ontario.

Ravine Vineyard is proudly owned by Norma Jane (Lowrey) Harber and Blair Harber. The property has been a source of great pride for the Lowrey family since 1867, when Norma Jane’s great-grandfather, David Jackson Lowrey, purchased the upper farm and moved his family to St. Davids. This pride has fostered within us a deep desire to lovingly preserve and maintain our bountiful property.

In a gesture of respect for the land and the family, and to keep it free from imminent urban development, Norma Jane and Blair purchased the upper farm from Norma Jane’s four siblings and her mother Norma in 2004. The land was happy when Norma Jane’s ancestors grew the ripest cherries, pears, peaches, grapes, plums and vegetables in the Niagara peninsula; it has now proven itself perfect for fine wine.
