Robledo Family Winery Review 2021

Robledo Family Winery is a real example of the ‘American Dream’ as the small estate and tasting rooms were opened by Mexican immigrant Reynaldo Robledo Sr. This small-scale operation is located off the Carneros District’s back roads in Sonoma County, producing a mixture of red and white wines.

    Robledo charges no fees for membership to its ‘La Familia’ wine club, and customers can choose from four different plans with a discount given on all sales.

    Its Padinos plan includes its Cabernet Sauvignon at $39.15 a bottle, although this is of poor standard compared to the full-bodied original Bordeaux style.

    About Robledo Wine 

    All the wines available through the wine club are selected by Robledo and come from its in-house brands.

    It sells a limited amount of reds, whites, and sweet dessert wines; it states that it does some specials, but it has none listed when checked.

    Robledo Wine Brands

    Only the Robledo brand is available to club members, and reviews on its red Zinfandel and Pinot Noir are of a standard taste.

    Its 2016 El Rey Cabernet did win ‘ Toast of The Coast of 2020’; however, Robledo doesn’t give any real details about its wines online.

    What I Think About Robledo Wine Club (Conclusion)

    Robledo Family Winery is the all-American tale of success, and its wine club does boast free membership, although wines are limited to in-house brands.

    Its benefits are also pretty limited, and some may find its prices a little high against the standard of wine being sold.

    The California Wine Club sells limited-edition wines of much higher quality from some of the choicest coastal regions, while FirstLeaf Wine Club gives members a more international flavor with exceptional wines from France, Spain, and Italy.
