Give a Little Chianti in the Carolinas this Christmas

Thank You for an Incredible Year! 

We are grateful to everyone who visited Raffaldini Vineyards this year. We are thankful to our staff, family, and friends for making this such a wonderful destination. We are also proud of all we have accomplished this year: 

  • 97 Points, 2017 Grande Riserva, San Francisco Wine International Wine Competition
  • 92 Points, 2017 Grande Riserva, James Suckling
  • 91 Points, 2017 Sangiovese Classico, American Wine Society
  • 91 Points, 2017 Il Falco, American Wine Society
  • 90 Points, 2017 Sangiovese Classico, James Suckling
  • Best Premium, Non-Bordeaux Red Blend >$25, 2017 Grande Riserva, San Francisco Wine International Wine Competition
  • Gold Medal, 2017 Grande Riserva, NC State Wine Competition
  • Gold Medal, 2016 Meditazione, NC State Wine Competition
  • Best Winery in Wilkes County, Wilkes Journal Patriot
Less than 20 cases left of this Raffaldini wine 'named one of the best in the World.' 

Our 2017 Grande Riserva is almost sold out with less than 20 cases remaining of this remarkable vintage. The proprietary blend of Sagrantino, Montepulciano, and Petit Verdot made with Appassimento received a 97 point score and Best Premium Non-Bordeaux Red Blend at the San Francisco International Wine Competition held last month. A double gold wine must go through a rigorous judging process and all the judges deliberate and must agree on the wine's quality. Double Golds are only awarded to the very few entries that receive a Gold medal rating by all members of the judging panel; these are among the finest wines in the world.
