Attention Wine Lovers!
Ciao Amici -

There is nothing more glorious than the start of Summer in the vineyard. The flowers are in full bloom, the vineyard is bursting with color, and the fruit that will become the next vintage is here, signaling the countdown to harvest.

To celebrate the season, I've curated some experiences that complement and highlight what we do to make Raffaldini Vineyards unique. The Salon Tasting is a comparative tasting of our Sangiovese alongside stellar examples of this classic Italian grape. The long-awaited release of our 2017 Grande Riserva, a wine that highlights the fullest potential of our estate and exemplifies the laborious Appassimento drying method. Finally, Afternoon in Tuscany is everything I love about Italy -the wine, the food, and the music-right here in the Carolinas, set to the stunning backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

I look forward to sharing our journey with you.


A presto,


Jay

2017 Grande Riserva Release
Saturday, May 25 | 1pm-3pm

$25 plus tax per person | General Admission
$20 plus tax per person | Wine Club Members

Join owner Jay Raffaldini as he presents our 2017 Grande Riserva! Grande Riserva, as the name implies, represents the utmost and very best efforts of all that we do from the vineyard to the winery. In making this limited quantity wine, we used the finest and oldest Montepulciano, Petit Verdot, and Sagrantino grapes, harvested at optimal ripeness and then triple sorted.

We applied the Appassimento drying process to further concentrate the grapes’ natural flavors and aromas. Finally, we placed the grapes in oak fermenters to further deepen the profile and aged the wine in the best oak barrels available.

Event ticket includes a glass of 2017 Grande Riserva and light Hors D'oeuvres from Bottles & Boards.
