2021 Grande Riserva Release
Saturday, February 10 | 1:00pm - 2:00pm

You are invited to join Owner Jay Raffaldini and Winemaker Chris Nelson at the Winery as they present our 2021 Grande Riserva. As the name implies, Grande Riserva is a wine that represents the utmost and very best efforts of that that we do from the vineyard to the winery. We had a wonderful growing season and the grapes brought in from the vineyard were plump, juicy and bursting with flavor.  These lovely grapes were made even more perfect by our increased use of the Appassimento drying process and the wine they produced is well balanced and full bodied and truly delicious.

Ticket price includes a glass of 2021 Grande Riserva alongside the 2014 vintage, celebrating its tenth anniversary, and light Hors D'oeuvres. 

Ticket Price - $25 Non Wine Club Members

Join Barbara Raffaldini as she shares her Love for all things Italian and provides you with insights into Italian culture, language, food and traditions.  This year’s Amore will focus on olive oil and balsamic vinegar and you will learn all about these liquid delights. You will have the opportunity to taste the newly released  2023 Tamia and Raffaldini  Delicato and Robusto olive oils  and the new Tamia Balsamic Vinegar and White Wine Vinegar.  The workshop will begin at 1 pm. Admission is free but space is limited so please email us for more information or to RSVP.


La Dolce Vita Release 
Saturday, February 24 | 11am - 4pm

We are excited to unveil our newest release of La Dolce Vita.  La Dolce Vita, which translates from Italian as “The Sweet Life”,  is our version of the widely popular Italian sweet wine called Moscato and is the only sweet wine we make. What makes La Dolce Vita so lovely is its aromatic profile of flowers supported by acidity and sparkling bubbles that balance the sweetness of the wine while retaining its freshness.  It is best served chilled and is perfect to pair with dry cheeses and fruit or as a standalone when simply relaxing.

Join us at our Villa tasting room, where we will be offering  a complimentary tasting of our La Dolce Vita paired with Italian biscotti cookies. No reservations needed—just drop by and savor the bubbles.

Raffaldini Wines Now Available Across NC

After nearly two decades of having Raffaldini wines available exclusively at the Villa we have found a wholesale distribution firm that targets wine shops and restaurants rather than mass supermarket, etc. We sought to build connections with independent retailers and restaurateurs so we can still tell our story to the sales outlet and build on the connection that we have with all of you. To begin, we agreed to have two value-based wines (Bella Misto and Bianco) as well as higher end (Vermentino Superiore and Montepulciano Riserva) available for sale. 

To locate a store near you, simply go to raffaldini.com then hover your mouse over shop on the header. When the drop down menu appears, click "Find Raffaldini Wines" at the bottom of the list. Once on the Raffaldini Store Locator, you can use the drop down to search by type or location or type in your zip code and search a radius for outlets near you. If you don’t see your favorite wine shop listed please email me directly at jay@raffaldini.com and I will work with our wholesale partner to get them in the store near you.
