Vinello Series: Release Party at the Winery
May 21 | Wine Club Members Only | $30 per person

Raffaldini is pleased to announce our very limited production release of our Vinello series to you, our loyal wine club members on Saturday, May 21st from 1 PM-3 PM. This will be a wine club only event! We will be joined by High Country Boards to bring you a new exclusive wine and food pairing experience.
During the excellent 2021 grape harvest, we experimented with an old Italian winemaking method known as Vinello to great success. Vinello is made from rehydrated grape pomace that has completed its work of making excellent wine. Rather than place the pomace in the vineyard to provide nutrition for vines, we decided to referment the pomace by adding enough sugar and water to produce a low alcohol, yet distinctly flavorful, wine.  This low alcohol beverage is frequently consumed by the vineyard and winery workers during their daily meal breaks.  The French call their version Piquette. We made three different types of Vinello – a Bianco made from Vermentino pomace, a Rosato made from a co-fermentation of Appassimento Vermentino and Sagrantino, and a Rosso made from Teroldego. 
In total we produced 100 cases and look forward to sharing them with you during this release. Due to limited quantities, we are asking that purchases be limited to one case of each wine. This event will be $30.00 + tax per person and will included a glass of each new wine, paired with 2 food samples. Each wine club member is permitted to bring 2 guests to the event. To purchase your tickets please click the link below.

Rosé All May!

On Sale Now! - 2021 Girasole

Sample the highest-rated Girasole we have ever made for the first time and set your taste buds to summertime. Now available by the flight, glass or bottle at Villa Raffaldini! 

Best of Show Rosé, Best Dry Rosé International Sommelier Challenge
Girasole - Gold Medal, 92 Points

We are honored to share that our 2021 Girasole received a 92 Gold and was one of the highest rated rosés. Interestingly, this is the first year that we made our Girasole in a new way, using gently, whole-cluster pressed, 100% Sangiovese grapes, which brings out notes of watermelon, strawberry, and bubble gum on the nose of this delicious summertime rose wine. The solid acid backbone makes this wine refreshing on the palate as well as pairing well with lighter fare dishes like salads and fish.Just in time for warmer weather.
