Joanne took us on a tour of the oldest running winery in the US. She did a wonderful job, with the history of the winery entwined with US history. Although we came up with quite a few questions, she had an answer to each. The wine tasting at the end was delightful! We plan to give a couple of gift... More

I’m torn on this 3 star rating. I would give it a 3.5 if I could. First the positive, worm atmosphere, very inviting decor for a cosy night out with wife, husband or friends….NO KIDS!. The food was..O.K. at best and the floor show was very good and pulled this rating up to a 3.5. The parking lot is a... More

Brotherhood Winery hosted the event I attended there, and the lovely grounds, beautiful chateau and very accommodating staff made this even memorable. I am from Oregon originally and have not ventured around New York State except for visits to NYC and thoroughly enjoyed the surroundings and the area where Brotherhood Winery is located.

My boyfriends parents took my boyfriend and I here for the day. We took the tour which was awesome. Cool old wine cellar. Then we tasted the wine. It was good. They have a restaurant on site but it looked expensive so we didn't eat. Enjoyed my visit here and would return.

Spent the afternoon here with my husband. Our tour guide was Dave. He was so pleasant and knowledgeable. After the tour he did our tasting. He was so much fun. Most wines are delicious and all are nicely priced. I suggest you do the tour and tasting. It's only $10 per person. Glad we took the ride. We were also... More

We day-tripped to the Brotherhood Winery from Yonkers. Only about 90 minutes away, and well worth the drive. The tour and our guide Janet were excellent; informative and interesting. The wine tasting was delicious and at $10 a person -- you can't beat the price. Location is beautiful. The cafe is open Wed through Sundays.

Beautiful place to visit. Staff was very friendly and made this experience memorable. The grounds are well kept and has ample parking. Our tour guide Mark was extremely knowledgable and very engaging. Will more than likely visit again to try out the dining experience

Loved visiting and picking out wines from their large shop. Did not go on the tour as we did not have sufficient time, but I did it years ago and it is quite fun. There was a wedding there the day we visited, so seemed very limited.

This place is STUNNING!!! There is so much character at this venue! The experience and communication with Donny has been great.
