We enjoyed our tour of Brotherhood Winery. There is a bunch of history behind the place and the guide makes the tour in all honesty. It was interesting to see where the wines are bottled and the barrels they are aged in. The tour was thorough and we were given a decent explanation of how wines were made. In terms... More

Every year since 2000 my family and I have purchased brotherhood wines. We lived in NY (westchester county) and then moved to Florida, but continued to visit occasionally. Now that we are back in the Northeast, we take regular semi-annual jaunts. This place is the best, and our favorites are the Riesling, Cabernet and Carpe Diem. We have even enjoyed... More

I have lived my entire life quite near the Brotherhood Winery but had never checked it out before yesterday when a group of us visited. The wines actually were better than I expected. The indoor spaces were quite chilly and could have used a raise in the heating. We have visited many vineyards and wineries in California, Italy and France... More

Love the stories behind the Brotherhood Winery. Short but interesting tour. Was there quite a few years back, and the new owners have brought the place up beautifully. Prices are very reasonable, selection is outstanding!!..Should have bought more, need to go back soon!!..

I must admit that Brotherhood winery was a bit of a disappointment. We signed up for the tour which costs $10 per person (includes a tasting). The vast majority of the tour consisted of our tour guide telling us about the history of the winery (owners etc.) and pointing out various locations where weddings could be held. Unfortunately, we did... More

We ended our trip with a visit to Brotherhood and what a wonderful note to end it with. The tour was very informative, rich in history - both American and wine. Wine tasting follows the tour and it just brings the whole experience together. Lots to see and do on the property, there's a museum, a gift shop, a working... More

I can't say enough about the wines and the prices. Both are amazing. We had the traditional taste testing and my favorite wines were the Holiday Spice and Blanc de Blancs. We will definitely be coming back here sometime!

We took the tour followed by a tasting. Our tour guide Glen was very knowledgeable and friendly. Our visit there was very informative and interesting. Well worth the time.

This was our first stop on the wine trail and basically our last. My daughter wanted to do the tour so we ended up having to wait about 30 minutes for the next one. Mary, our tour guide was pleasant but not very knowledgeable and needs a bit of a brush up on her delivery but we were more interested... More

My husband and I visited the winery on a Friday in October. The trees on the way there were turning color and the views were spectacular. We planned to take a tour at 11:30, artived at 11:10 and had plenty of time to walk around the area and tasting room before the tour started. Our tour guide was great, I... More
