“A Sweet Detour”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

We escaped the winter doldrums by attending the vineyard's Sweet and Sinful Revenge Cupcake and Wine Pairing event. The winery is located atop a hill with an amazing view.. There is a lot for customers to park and a short walk to the winery. Although too cold to enjoy, the winery features a lovely deck and outside fire pit. The staff was friendly and most accommodating. We enjoyed the wines we sampled and loved the cupcakes supplied by the Moxie Bakery located in New Paltz. We applaud their animal friendly policy; well behaved dogs are welcome and their own little mascot made a brief appearance.

The customer area is spacious with a tasting bar located in the front and an area for sitting near the deck. If there was a down side it was the acoustics. Even though not packed, the noise level was high and the music they were playing (a lot of Elvis) was tinny and too loud.

A small family operation, they have yet to develop a large repertoire of wines. The ones they had showed promise, especially the Cabernet. We particularly enjoyed the Serendipity, a Seyval Blanc/Chardonnay Blend. Although they have vineyards planted it appears that the wines are produced from grapes sourced from throughout New York State.One can purchase wine at the winery (or through their website) and there are an assortment of food items, gifts, t- shirts and accessories also available for sale.

This was a sweet little detour. the location was lovely, the people pleasant, the wine good and the cupcakes unbelievably delicious. We look forward to visiting again.

“Welcome to the trail”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

This was my first visit to this place since it joined the Shawungunk holiday wine trail tour. Another winery called Rivendell used to occupy this site Our pourer was great and really took time to explain the wines and it really added to the experience. The tasting room is nice and the restrooms are modern and clean. I plan on coming back this coming year.

“wine tasting”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

Nice place but lacked organization for wine tastings. You paid first and then went to the bar for tasting....but you had to be on top of things because people could go ahead of you...it would have been nice if they took you in turn instead of having to be eyeing everyone and jumping into their place when they left .

“Relaxing and family friendly”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

I live in the Hudson Valley and try to go to Robibero Winery when I have free time. Great Escape. Friendly owners who are chill with just about anything. You never feel rushed out. Great property for kids to play Frisbee or catch, with a bon fire to boot! Worth the visit for couples or families looking for a few hours to unwind. Great wine at affordable prices.

“Okay wine, singing duo needs replacing”
Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

Visited this winery on a beautiful October afternoon. The wines were okay, nothing great. At least the ones we were tasting. The entertainment was pretty bad, the female singer was way off key. The setting is nice, the porch a perfect place to sit. A great place to bring kids, lots of room for them to run around. Bring food with you, the snacks they do sell are over-priced.
