Röbller Vineyard Winery keeps the focus on technique and terroir

“Currently, the vineyard is home to 18 acres of grapes, mostly French hybrid varieties. Farmland surrounding the vines is kept as grassland to buffer the plants from any chemical exposure from modern farming practices.

The name for the Mueller’s new adventure would be Röbller, a mash-up of “Robert” and “Mueller,” with an umlaut added to reflect Robert’s German heritage. The winery first opened its doors in April of 1991. The goal was to become a European estate-style winery, with a focus on terroir and technique.

Röbller’s wine is made from French hybrid varieties like St. Vincent, Vidal, Vignoles, Norton, Traminette, Seyval and Chambourcin. As Robert experimented with growing different grapes on the land, he discovered that French hybrids could stand the harsh weather patterns of Missouri. Missouri summers in particular are notoriously hot and dry.”
