Raffaldini Winemakers Attend Mid-Atlantic Summit

Last week our Winemakers, Katy Kidd and Matheson Worrell, represented North Carolina at the second annual Mid-Atlantic Wine Summit at Big Cork Vineyards in Maryland. This invitation-only symposium pulled together like-minded winemakers from thirteen of the top wine producers across the region to share their best wines, trade notes and ask questions in an open forum. A large media presence ranging from bloggers, magazine editors, food and wine authors, the Washington post, and wine critic James Suckling, were represented.
Katy and Mat presented two wines, Liguria and Sangiovese, to their peers. Each wine showed very well that day and the other winemakers and members of the media were delighted with what we are able accomplish at Raffaldini and in North Carolina given our challenging growing conditions.
We were honored to be invited to this event and in the company of prestigious winemakers. We look forward to hosting events like this in the future.

Sunday, June 16 - Pino Vino X Release

For the last decade Raffaldini Vineyards has officially supported local animal rescue organizations by donating proceeds from the sale of each of its Pino Vino wine releases. The first label featured Pinot, who Jay and Maureen Raffaldini rescued from a kill shelter when she was 1 ½ years old. Over the following eight years the photos of different rescued pets have graced our labels. This month we feature Pino Vino III and Chloe, a rough-coat Jack Russell Terrier from State Road, NC.

Chloe and the hundreds of submissions we received had a moving story and illustrated the love and dedication so many of you have for helping abandoned and abused animals. We thank you for your continued support and have been honored to host these yearly releases. On this 10th year we will once again feature a dog rescued by the Raffaldini family on the label of Pino Vino X. Pino Vino X will also be present for lots of pets and kisses.    

Please join us on June 16, 2018 for a fun filled family afternoon when we release Pino Vino X.
