Mother's Day Family Day at Raffaldini
Sunday, May 9 | 12pm - 5pm

In Italy, la mamma is the cornerstone of the home and celebrated by her family all year round. But every second Sunday of May, bambini and adults alike lavish their mothers with flowers and gifts for La Festa della Mamma. Mother’s Day was first celebrated in Italy in May 1957, about 50 years after it was founded in the United States. A parish priest began the tradition in Assisi with great festivities. Many in the surrounding cities got word and joined the appreciation of the women whose unconditional love and hard work helped them become who they are. The day was so successful that just one year later, the holiday was adopted across Italy’s 20 regions. Today, Mother’s Day is as widely celebrated in Italy, as it is the United States. Children of all ages head home to visit in time for La Festa della Mamma.

Show Mamma how much you love her and bring her Chianti in the Carolinas - Raffaldini on May 9. Each mother (or mother figure) will receive a flower and chocolate Baci. Heritage Homestead Goat Dairy will be onsite with goats and there will be activities for children. 

Cellar Release of 2015 Montepulciano Riserva
Available for Sale starting Saturday, May 15

We are proud to announce the re-release of our highest rated Montepulciano Riserva, the heralded 2015 vintage on May 15, 2021. Jay made the decision to cellar this wine for an additional five (5) years, and it is at its peak development of flavor and aroma. He set aside 200 cases and because we expect demand to be exceptionally strong, we are limiting purchase amounts to two (2) cases for wine club members and six bottles for non-wine club members. Once our 2015 Montepulciano Riserva is sold out, there will be no further Montepulciano Riserva available until we release our 2019 vintage this Fall.
