“Discover a new wine tradition”
Since our first vintage in 1990, we at Röbller Vineyard have experienced many successes. Our quaint tasting room has become home to an array of awards from local and national wine competitions. We are quite proud of the Best of Show and first ever Governor's Cup Award we received for our 1991 Norton Reserve. We began at our home in Glendale, Missouri. Each fall family and friends gathered in our backyard to crush the newly harvested grapes and sample the previous year's vintage. Over the years the quality of the wine improved to the point that we decided to establish a winery. On a sunny December day in 1987, Robert and Lois Mueller took the kids on a drive in the country. The drive which led us to New Haven, Missouri, ended at a beautiful piece of property that showcased the rolling countryside of the region. The property offered south facing slopes with a full east/west exposure along with great soil composition and depth for establishing a vineyard. We had found the perfect location to establish our winery. Over the next several months we designed the layout of the vineyard and planting began in mid-spring. This was the beginning of a great new tradition in Missouri's wine community. During 1989 and 1990 we built the winery and set up the equipment, preparing for our first crush. Finally everything came together, the grapes we had contracted for were ripe and the bureau of alchohol, tobacco and firearms approved the building.
The Traveling Winers on Missouri Wine Trail
Röbller Vineyard was definitely one of the highlights on our Hermann Wine Trail! Robert and Lois Mueller bought this beauty of a land in 1987 making them the 4th owners of the property. They current grow mainly hybrids including Vidal, Vignoles, Seyval, Traminette, Steuben, Villard Noir, St. Vincent, Chambourcin and Norton, and produce approximately 6,000 gallons per year (25,000 cases). Our time at the Vineyard was spent with Robert and Lois’ son, Jerry. What a wealth of interesting information Jerry has to share and what passion for the creation of a quality wine! Jerry told us about the different type of fermentation processes that they have employed in order to smooth out the flavor of the sometimes harsh Norton grape (our words, not his!). And we can tell you that whatever he did, it works! Very nice smooth flavor from their Norton and Chambourcin.
