Auguri Release & Olive Oil Tasting
Saturday, April 22 | 1PM-3PM
Join Jay Raffaldini at the Villa for the release of our new vintage of Auguri. Auguri has a sun-kissed yellow and golden hue with an inviting aroma of carnations and fresh cut flowers.  In the glass, the refined bubble structure catches the eye in a pleasing way. The palate is wonderfully lively and refreshing with the hallmark Raffaldini acidity that makes Auguri so special.  Auguri is fermented in bottle in the same traditional method used when making champagne!  Jay will be telling you all about Auguri and giving free tastings.  Barbara Raffaldini will also be onsite giving free tastings of our two new olive oils, which are produced by our Italian partner, Tamia
Girasole Release

Saturday, May 13 | 12PM-4PM

Just in time for warmer weather, join us at the Villa for the release of our new vintage of Girasole! This salmon color rose is made from gently, whole cluster pressed Montepulciano grapes, which brings out notes of watermelon, strawberry, and bubble gum on the nose of this delicious summertime rose wine. A solid acid backbone makes this wine refreshing on the palate as well as pairing well with lighter fare dishes like salads and fish. Rose all day!
Barrel Tasting
Saturday, May 20 | 1pm - 3pm 

This event will be hosted by Winemaker Chris Nelson. Be the first of 40 wine club members to sample new vintages straight out of the barrel. Chris will also spend time explaining the various techniques used at Raffaldini and provide a tour of the Winery showing the equipment used in winemaking. Guests will have the unique opportunity to ask questions about the winemaking process.

Raffaldini Wines Now Available Across NC
After nearly two decades of having Raffaldini wines available exclusively at the Villa we have found a wholesale distribution firm that targets wine shops and restaurants rather than mass supermarket, etc. We sought to build connections with independent retailers and restaurateurs so we can still tell our story to the sales outlet and build on the connection that we have with all of you. To begin, we agreed to have two value-based wines (Bella Misto and Bianco) as well as higher end (Vermentino Superiore and Montepulciano Riserva) available for sale. 

To locate a store near you, simply go to raffaldini.com then hover your mouse over shop on the header. When the drop down menu appears, click "Find Raffaldini Wines" at the bottom of the list. Once on the Raffaldini Store Locator, you can use the drop down to search by type or location or type in your zip code and search a radius for outlets near you. If you don’t see your favorite wine shop listed please email me directly at jay@raffaldini.com and I will work with our wholesale partner to get them in the store near you.
