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.

Buona Pasqua - Easter At Raffaldini Vineyards
Sunday, April 17 | 12pm - 5pm 

Bring the whole family and celebrate Easter with our friends from Heritage Homestead Goat Dairy as we host baby goats and the traditional Italian Easter Cheese Roll, or La Ruzzola Del Formaggio. 

An Easter egg hunt for the kids will take place on the lawn, and we will have Heritage Homestead’s baby goats back out again this year for petting. 

We will also have our annual La Ruzzola Del Formaggio competitions at 1pm and 3 pm on the lawn of the Villa. La “Ruzzola," a traditional Italian game of the rolling of the large wheels of cheese, dates back 3000 years to the Etruscan Tomb of the Olympiads but is now played every Easter in many Italian farming villages. Prizes will be awarded for each winner who can roll their cheese closest to the target.

Beyond the Vines...Into the Community
Piedmont Opera

Raffaldini is proud to be a season sponsor of Piedmont Opera! Enjoy their season-debut opera, Ragtime, which weaves three distinctly American tales together – that of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant, and a daring young Harlem musician.  Each are united by their courage, compassion, and belief in the promise of the future. Together, they confront history's timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom, and prejudice, hope and despair... and what it means to live in America. Learn More
