Robinette’s produces our own hard cider and began serving it to the public in January of 2006. Bill Robinette makes the cider on site and it has been named Barzilla’s Brew for the founder of the Robinette farm, Barzilla Robinette. Barzilla always said, “feel free NOT to name any of the children after me.” So we named our first wine after him! We now also have an Apple Cherry Hard Cider for your enjoyment.

We are always working on additional wines. We have 18 wines that are all Michigan-made for you to try in the winery. We also have non-alcoholic sparkling raspberry juice that you can take home for the kids. The newest additions to our wine menu are Apple Wine, Peach Spumante, Riesling, and Cranberry.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
