Sangiovese roughly translates from Latin as " Sanguis Jovis” or
“Blood of Jove". Jove was the Supreme God in Roman mythology. It is the
principal grape grown in the Tuscany region of Italy. Three clones of
Sangiovese are the most sought after. The first clone, Sangioveto or
Grosso is used for Chianti. The second clone, Brunello is used to make
Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino and the third Prugnolo, for Vino
Nobile di Montepulciano wines.
Raffaldini Vineyards Seeks Rescue Dog Photos For Wine Label
Ronda, NC, March 19, 2014—Calling
all dogs! Raffaldini Vineyards is looking for the next rescue dog to appear on
the label of Pino Vino VI, the next vintage of Raffaldini wine that benefits
local animal shelters and organizations.
Previous Vintages of Pino Vino
have all featured a picture of a rescue dog that was chosen from entries
submitted by rescue pet owners. Pino Vino VI will be bottled featuring the
picture of the winning dog from this year’s submissions. The wine will be
released at a special unveiling ceremony on Saturday June 7.
“Our goal for this competition is
to raise awareness for the caring and compassion that all animals deserve,”
Vineyard Owner Jay Raffaldini, said. “We are always touched by the
unconditional support demonstrated by our participants towards animals in need,
and in the end, we are all winners because of the impact and inspiration these
special creatures have on our lives.”
Raffaldini Vineyards accepts
photos of rescue dogs until April 30, 2014. The winning rescue dog will
replace last year’s winner, Trotter, a German Shepherd mix from Troutman, NC.
This is the sixth release of the wine Pino Vino, and like the previous five
releases, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of Pino Vino VI will
be donated to local animal shelters in support of all rescue animals.
Entrants can send their digital
photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please include your name and contact information, your dog’s name and a brief
story about your dog in 50 words or less. The winner will be announced on May
The Raffaldini family traces its
origins to the 14th century in Mantua, Italy, where for generations the family
produced wine on their family farm. The family chose the Yadkin Valley of North
Carolina because the area closely resembles the winemaking region of Tuscany
with rolling hills, rocky soil, gentle breezes and constant sun.
