Official Grande Riserva Release: Saturday: May 25th
1:00 PM     Sat, May 25, 2019
Venue: Villa Raffaldini

You’re invited to join owner Jay Raffaldin as he presents our 2017 Grande Riserva! 
Grande Riserva, as the name implies, represents the utmost and very best efforts of all that we do from the vineyard to the winery. In making this limited quantity wine, we used the finest and oldest Montepulciano, Petit Verdot, and Sagrantino grapes, harvested at optimal ripeness and then triple sorted.

We applied the Appassimento drying process to further concentrate the grapes’ natural flavors and aromas. Finally, we placed the grapes in oak fermenters to further deepen the profile and aged the wine in the best oak barrels available.

The event ticket includes a glass of 2017 Grande Riserva and light Hors D'oeuvres from "Bottles & Boards".

Louisiana native Colin Allured began his music career with his dad, whom he begged to teach him guitar. Later he studied at Loyola University and is reminded of times walking in the French Quarter with his father, shopping at Tower records to replace music that they lost in a house fire a few years prior, and listening to all the street musicans, second lines, and jazz guitarists. After graduating from UNCSA in 2001, Colin has dutifully pursued a music career, working as a teacher before ultimately breaking out on his own as a musician. Colin volunteers playing hours for a non-profit grant funded organization called Arts for Life that brings music to kids with cancer going through chemotherapy at the hospital. Colin enjoys his pursuit of the arts and is currently expanding his knowledge of Indian and African music. His goal is "to make the world better with music." Colin Allured.

Our reds are ready for blending and we need you to help us determine the blend for the Raffaldini Grande Riserva! Each session is a two-hour education wine experience led by Owner Jay Raffaldini in our winery barrel room. Each blend you create will be carefully analyzed, sampled and help inspire our new vintage of Grande Riserva. 

This is an opportunity to hone your winemaking knowledge and ability, learn more about grape varietals, and make a few new friends in the process. Blending trials will be held in the barrel room allowing you to experience the winery during the winemaking session.
