Celebrate All Things Italian with Us at Our Biggest Event of the Year!

Vine to Wine Guests Experience Harvest at Raffaldini Vineyards

Last Friday under picture-perfect skies a group of Raffaldini patrons got the experience of a lifetime harvesting and processing fruit from our vineyards alongside Owner and Winemaker Jay Raffaldini and the rest of the winemaking team. The group harvested Sangiovese and Sagrantino and after lunch headed over to the winery to remove the Passito, or dehydrated fruit, from the Fruttaio (drying room) to begin the fermentation process.  Then they refilled the racks with freshly-picked fruit ready to begin the Appassimento process.
