La Famigilia Raffaldini cordially invites all of our wine club members to our wine club member appreciation day. You'll enjoy live music, samples from local vendors raffles for door prizes and special tastings all day! 

Meditazione Available Now

Our 2016 Meditazione is now available in the Villa Tasting Room and online. In Italy, a dessert wine is also known as a meditation wine for it is consumed at the end of the evening meal when one can relax and reflect upon the day and all that has transpired. It gives pause, slows one down, and allows time for what is commonly referred to as an "exhale moment.” Because it is a limited production wine, Meditazione will be bottle sales only.
