$20 on select weekends
We are not a wine company therefore we don’t have a corporate mission. We are a family that happens to have a passion for wine. We are a family that loves each other very much. We fight with passion and forgive quickly. We call each other 20 times a day. We know that if we win together, we lose together. We think if it’s easy, you’re probably doing it wrong. We can’t make decisions easily and we overthink everything we do. We believe in giving more when you want to give up. We think if you work half days that means 12 hours. We drink a lot of coffee and a lot of wine. We don’t believe in wine rating systems. We believe that you should like what you drink and drink what you like. We like to laugh until we can’t breathe. We think it’s important to be able to laugh at yourself. We believe you don’t need to know all the answers; no one is smart enough to ask you all the questions. We think that if your name is on the sign, you probably should be in the building. We don’t have a plan, we have a dream. We are not chasing our dreams; we crush them and put them in bottles.”
Every weekend at the winery enjoy wood-fired pizza topped with crisp arugula, balsamic drizzle, and freshly cracked pepper. Pair it with a glass of Robibero’s rich, silky 2016 Merlot.
Established in 2010, Robibero Winery is set on a 42-acre property that is nestled in and around the breathtaking Shawangunk ridge. The estate vineyard is comprised of Vidal Blanc and Cabernet Franc, two varieties that grow best in our soil. The tasting room is a family-friendly, pet-friendly establishment that includes a spacious concrete bar, fireplace, and plenty of indoor seating. Outside, the 90-foot deck offers panoramic views overlooking the vineyard and a pergola-covered patio. Along the lushly manicured sloping fields of the property, you will find a huge outdoor stone firepit and picnic benches that welcome you to bring your lunch.
