At this time Governor Cooper has ordered that the onsite sale and consumption of food and alcohol be halted. Given this executive order and CDC recommendations, we think that it is in the best interest of our employees and guests to close our tasting room to the public. So effective immediately our tasting room is closed and will remain closed until April 1, 2020.
This decision was not taken lightly, and we understand the impact this has on our business operations, employees, customers, and vendors. We will continue to monitor the situation, and we will re-open the tasting room as soon thereafter as it is safe to do so.
During this time, all of our wines will continue to be available for purchase online at www.raffaldini.com. Starting today until end of the day March 31, 2020, free shipping is available on 1/2 case and full case purchases when you enter the coupon code MARCHFREE when you check out. In addition, all wine club members who want their packages right away will be offered complimentary shipping.
We are working on the launch of virtual wine tastings with Jay Raffaldini and will advise you of the times and dates. So please check your emails or our website for further information on this new offering.
As the sign at our exit gates says: Lontano dagli occhi, vicino al cuore. While you may be far from sight, you are close to our heart. We wish you and your family all the best of health and hope to see you in person when as we reopen to the public.
