Vine to Wine

An Immersive Harvest Experience

Friday, September 7

Work side-by-side with Owner Jay Raffaldini and the rest of our winemaking team as we harvest our 2018 vintage! We are offering oenophiles the chance to participate in every step of the grape harvest from vine to bottle. This is your chance to learn about the grape varietals, harvesting and the wine-making process at Raffaldini Vineyards. You will also have a taste analysis of wines that are currently in production and enjoy an exclusive harvest dinner featuring our award-winning wines paired with traditional Italian fare. This event will be led by Owner Jay Raffaldini, the Winemakers, and the Vineyard Manager and will give you complete access to the behind the scenes process of wine production. Due to the intimate nature of this event, there are only twenty spaces for this unique experience.
