Villa Raffaldini is open to the public for wine tastings and to private parties for special events. A place where food, family and wine harmoniously blend to create a unique and transporting experience for all, Villa Raffaldini is much more than a wine tasting room and event venue – it is a place where lifelong memories are made, friendships formed and family ties strengthened.
Villa Raffaldini is a 6,000 square foot tasting room and event venue inspired by villas in Mantua, Italy; home to the Raffaldini family, in the north-central region of Lombardy. Villa Raffaldini features traditional Italian art, architecture and tasting rooms on both of the two levels. Enjoy panoramic views of the Blue Ridge and Brushy Mountains from inside the tasting rooms and outside on the balconies and landscaped terraces.
The Villa is constructed with materials widely used in Tuscany such as distressed wood, slate tile, terracotta and stucco; as well as native stone unearthed during vineyard plantings. Local artisans meticulously crafted Villa Raffaldini to exacting levels of detail, producing a building that is functional yet timeless. Interior elements include wide-open spaces with warm, inviting color palettes and large picture windows revealing dramatic mountain views that capture the totality of the experience.
On the northern side of Villa Raffaldini is a large piazza with a beautiful fountain reminiscent of the intimate settings found in villages throughout Italy. Nearby the piazza are the Orange Moscato vines giving off heady aromas of orange blossom and gardenias during the height of the harvest season. On the southern side we planted specially selected olive trees, noted for their beautiful silver and green leaves as well as delicious oils. Scattered throughout the pathways surrounding the Villa are roses, lavenders, rosemary bushes and fig trees.
Villa Raffaldini provides a gracious and expansive setting for your special occasion – a wedding, anniversary party, business luncheon, corporate event or festive celebration. We invite you to enter Villa Raffaldini and imagine being transported to Tuscany celebrating what life was like so long ago…
