Our Story


Our Story


About

After losing their lease in their previous location, South Tahoe Standup Paddle needed a new home.  The location of the former Picchetti Winery building was perfect but too large for STSUP.  The concept of a coffee and wine cafe to fill the additional space seemed like the right fit.  Revive Coffee & Wine was founded in 2016 by owner, Robin Bender.  

Robin's husband, Dr. Bob Bender, passed away of cancer in 2013, just months after her mother's passing to the same disease. Revive is Robin's personal story of coming back to life after such a devastating loss.  A picture of Dr. Bob flying into Lake Tahoe in the 1970's hangs over the cafe fireplace as a tribute to his memory.

Robin stepped out in faith to recreate herself and the new business.  Occupying the former Picchetti Winery tasting room, Revive brought new life to everything inside and out. The goal was to preserve the rich history of the South Shore in this historic building that dates back to the 1940's.

Some of the wood used to create the bar and inside counter came from a house built in Zephyr Cove and was milled at the mill in Glenbrook in the 1920's.  The doors from the home serve as the cafe tables with the door handles being used as hooks in the bathroom.  An old window from the house is framed with the home's fence material and was turned into a picture by South Tahoe Standup Paddle owner, Chris Brackett.

The rounds of wood used as the pathway through the front lawn came from excess materials from a construction project at Stateline. Repurposed wine barrels serve as outside tables.  From the Pastry Case to the Turbo Chef, the equipment inside the cafe was brought back to life.

There is seating on the front deck overlooking the front lawn, around wine barrels on the lawn, inside the small cafe as well as in the back yard, also known as the Revive Garden.  The cafe offers a stone fireplace to warm up by in the winter months.  The front lawn area offers locally made wine barrel fire pits to sit around on cooler nights.  

Robin says It takes a team of people to build a place like Revive.  We had no plan and limited materials when we started.  We were blessed by an outpouring of love from the community, the skill of local craftsmen and many donations of used materials.  Led by Chris Brackett and his son Jared,  the team of craftsmen built the custom bar that now occupies the cafe.  All of the work was custom.   It all came together to build a cafe with a casual elegance.  South Tahoe Standup Paddle occupies the space next door with a paddleboard display in the adjacent garden.  Now known as REVSUP, this old building has new life!
