Beautiful 2021 Vintage Nears Completion
Our Winemaking Team has been working diligently to complete the 2021 vintage. While the weather this year was generally milder and with a few less surprises, the dry and warm temps during the growing season provided us with quality fruit with and excellent ripeness. As fruit moves into the fruttaio (Drying Room) we are eager to taste these wines develop and share the newest Raffaldini vintage with you!

Cape Fear Living interviewed Suzanne Fanning, a native of the Tar Heel State, who is now in charge of marketing the Wisconsin Dairy Industry, to talk about her favorite North Carolina wine and Wisconsin Cheese pairings:

Nestled near the Yadkin River and Blue Ridge Mountains, the rolling hills and gentle slopes of the Raffaldini vineyard are blessed with mild breezes that constantly freshen and circulate air. Unique to the vineyard is an abundance of broken granite and schist which provide for excellent soil drainage and give the grapes a very distinctive terroir.

A dry, light to medium bodied wine, the 2019 Sangiovese Classico possesses dry, earthy aromas with medium tannins and bountiful acids. Bright, lush red fruit in the form of bing cherries and cranberries, followed by a hint of earth, red currant and rhubarb. A wine like this exceptionally well balanced Sangiovese is best paired with a blue cheese with a mellow, earthy flavor and soft, creamy finish.
