Raffaldini Vineyards and Winery LLC

Katy is the Senior Winemaker at Raffaldini Vineyards. She is a graduate of the Shelton Badgett Center for Viticulture and Enology in North Carolina with over 5 years of winemaking experience. Katy has the opportunity to work with unique Italian varietals and finding diverse ways to express their profiles by using a mix of modern day technology and traditional Italian methods like appassimento, that will result in wines unlike anything NC has experienced. On her time off, Katy enjoys spending time with her husband Erik and enjoys going on hikes with her two rescue dogs.

Chris Nelson -Winemaker

Joining the Raffaldini team represents a homecoming for our new winemaker, Chris Nelson, who grew up in Chapel Hill. Chris brings 15 years of experience making wine in California where he received his Master’s degree from Fresno State in Enology and Viticulture. Prior to finding his passion for winemaking, he spent four years as organic chemist in San Francisco. Before joining us, Chris spent the 2018 harvest working in Northern Virginia. When he’s not making wine, you will find Chris getting reacquainted with his home state, visiting friends and enjoying everything this great state has to offer.
