We know how much you have enjoyed the complimentary dinners we host at the winery for your benefit. We love hosting you, showcasing our excellent wines, and the delicious food our kitchen creates to complement them.
However, due to increases in food costs as a result of the lingering drought, causing increased operating costs in the winery, as well as new government regulations, it has become increasingly difficult for us to keep these dinners entirely free of cost.
Beginning January 1, we will be making changes to our Wine Club member benefits, including the complimentary dinners, which will now cost $35 per person. We’re sure you’ll agree this is still a fair and reasonable amount to pay for an all-inclusive three-course dinner with wine.
Roblar is still committed to offering the best wine club membership benefits in the Santa Ynez Valley. By adopting these new benefit changes, we will be able to continue to offer the great service and wonderful dinners for the foreseeable future.
There will be a total of five Wine Club Member Dinners in 2016 and these dinners will now coincide with Wine Club Pick Ups. These dinners, which are being expanded to host twice as many guests, will serve as our Pick Up parties. The cost will be $35 per person for a three-course gourmet dinner paired with premium wines in our gorgeous vineyard setting. Each club member, regardless of club level, will be allowed to attend only one dinner per year, so that every club member has a chance to attend. If you haven’t been able to attend a complimentary dinner in 2015, your complimentary dinner for two will still be honored in 2016. Afterward, all club members will be required to pay to attend these dinners. Reservations are required.
The new Member Dinner schedule for 2016:
APRIL 22 [Vintner’s Festival Weekend]
DECEMBER 2 [Winemaker Dinner – Special Edition member dinner with the winemaker. Price to be determined.]
Please make your reservations early with Wine Club Director Danielle Dishman via email at Danielle@Roblarwinery.com or by calling 805-686-2603 ext. 119
In addition, all club members will be invited to attend our exclusive members’ only parties:
Roblar Summer Soiree – JULY 16, 2016
Roblar Holiday Wine & Case Festival & Case Sale – NOVEMBER 12, 2016
These parties are open to all Wine Club members and their guests.
Despite the changes to our complimentary dinners, all club members will continue to be entitled to five complimentary charcuterie plates per year. Our exclusive cheese/meat/fruit plates are available free of charge whenever you have a wine club shipment to pick up. Just ask one of our servers upon your arrival.
