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.
