Family Days:
Sunday, June 19
 – Father’s Day

Bring the entire family and celebrate dad with us! Enjoy made-to-order authentic street tacos from Rivera Brothers Mexican Food Truck, and relax among the vines and savor a refreshing glass of wine. 

Monday, June 20 - Juneteenth Holiday

We will be open on Monday, the federal Juneteenth holiday, to celebrate the freedom all people and celebrate the spirit and resilience of our black community. Bring the entire family and enjoy a selection of antipasti and local cheeses from our tasting room, and wine by the flight, glass, or bottle. 

Saturday, July 23 – Fiano Release

We are proud to announce the release of a new white wine made in conjunction with our neighbors, Sotrio Vineyards. Fiano is an Italian grape that grows in the Campania region and in our opinion will make wine distinctive enough that it will, in time, rival Vermentino. We made 50 cases and have labeled the wine a vineyard designation, specifically Raffaldini Fiano, Sotrio Vineyards.

Join us for the release party from 1pm to 3 pm at the winery. This free event is for wine club members only. After we taste the Fiano, we will taste some early-style wine from the 2021 harvest. We will be serving light food to enjoy with your tasting. Please click to RSVP. The event starts promptly at 1pm so please arrive on time. 

Fiano will go onto sale in the Villa the following weekend and we don't expect it to last very long.

Vinello Series Wines Now On Sale for Wine Club

During the excellent 2021 grape harvest, we experimented with an old Italian winemaking method known as Vinello to great success. Vinello is made from rehydrated grape pomace that has completed its work of making excellent wine. Rather than place the pomace in the vineyard to provide nutrition for vines, we decided to referment the pomace by adding enough sugar and water to produce a low alcohol, yet distinctly flavorful, wine.

This low alcohol beverage is frequently consumed by the vineyard and winery workers during their daily meal breaks. The French call their version Piquette. We made three different types of Vinello – a Bianco made from Vermentino pomace, a Rosato made from a co-fermentation of Appassimento Vermentino and Sagrantino, and a Rosso made from Teroldego.
