Röbller Vineyard has been named best winery in mid-Missouri by readers of Feast magazine in the publication’s annual Feast 50 issue. Röbller is a member of the New Haven Chamber of Commerce.
Over 100,000 votes were cast by Feast readers in the seventh annual Feast 50 Awards, which highlights the best of Missouri’s food and drink scene. Röbller Vineyard received the top honor out of a list of 15 wineries in the mid-Missouri region, which includes Columbia, Jefferson City, Augusta, Hermann, and surrounding areas.
“We are grateful for this award and thankful to those who voted,” says winemaker Jerry Mueller. “This honor affirms that our commitment to ‘winegrowing’ as a craft is both recognized and appreciated.”
Since 1990, Röbller Vineyard has produced meticulously-crafted, European-style wines using grapes grown exclusively at the family-owned vineyard in New Haven, Missouri. The property boasts panoramic views of the rolling hills and breathtaking sunsets.
This year marks Röbller’s 30th growing season, with the first grapevines planted by Mueller’s parents Robert and Lois Mueller in 1988. Specializing in French inspired winemaking traditions, the vineyard produces a variety of French hybrid grapes including Chambourcin, St. Vincent, Villard Noir, Vidal, Seyval, Vignoles, and Traminette, as well as Missouri’s state grape, Norton.
Röbller wines are sold at multiple locations in St. Louis and mid-Missouri. Complimentary tastings and picnic seating are available seven days a week at the vineyard, located off of HWY 100 in New Haven, a short drive from Hermann. Röbller is also a stop on the Hermann Wine Trail, with events highlighting seasonal food pairings at seven Hermann-area wineries.

A Chamber of Commerce barbecue is planned Saturday, Aug. 18, as a fundraiser for next year’s Miller Landing Days.
The barbecue runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Save-A-Lot parking lot.
On the menu are barbecued pork steaks, bratwursts and hot dogs, with roasted corn, potato salad and baked beans available as sides. Soft drinks will also be available.
As in the recent past, this year's parade will be ending at the American Legion. Due to safety concerns with the amount of participants and attendees, we are not able to have the parade through the park. The New Haven Police Department will direct traffic for the parade and have barricades set up at the ending point. You can download the parade route here:
