Gallo Nero Release April 25

Hi All,

I hope this finds everyone healthy and safe. 

As we emerge from winter and enter spring with a renewed sense of optimism and belief that the future will hold ever more promise of good tidings, I sought to find a way to remember the ordeal that all of us have suffered both individually and collectively. I asked myself has anything positive come from the sheltering in place and long periods of working for home. The more I reflected upon it the more I saw a silver lining. That ray of sunshine was the vast amount of time families spent together under one roof and were effectively reunited. It reminded me of a period not so long ago when families cooked and dined together, spent nights as one and just enjoyed each other’s company.

So, the question for me is how do I honor that with a wine? In my mind I go back a few decades ago to when life was simpler and slower and being together was the rule not the exception. During that period one wine was quite commonly found in Italian restaurants and grocery stores and that was a Chianti sold in straw bottles known as ‘fiascos." Everyone over forty years old remember these bottles adorning checkered cloth tables and once the wine was consumed, they became candle holders with the red and green wax drippings on the bottle. What many did not know is that the fiasco bottle held 1-liter worth of wine, 33% more than a standard bottle which is probably why so many people left the dinner table very happy.

I began a long search to find a glass producer in Italy who makes these fiasco bottles. When I located him, he was of course amused there is an Italian style vineyard in North Carolina (which by the way is a state he never heard of). He asked how many I wanted and when I told him he said sure I can get you twenty-three. I said no I need twenty-three hundred and I think he fainted. Anyway, I have secured the bottles and we have crafted a beautiful Sangiovese blend called Gallo Nero (Black Rooster in Italian, the symbol of Chianti). The wine is more structured than the typical Sangiovese blends we make as I wanted it to pair with much more than “red sauce." It is a gem and when you purchase one of these commemorative bottles you will also receive a red or green candle so the Raffaldini fiasco (no pun intended) can have a second life.

I hope all of you can join me for the limited release of this one-time wine on the lawn at the Villa on Sunday, April 25th, where I will be describing the wine, pouring samples, and signing the bottles. As we look forward to the future let us always reminisce on some of life’s happier moments from the past.

All my best,

Jay

Easter At Raffaldini Vineyards
Sunday, April 4 | 12:00pm
 


Bring the whole family and celebrate Easter with our friends from Heritage Homestead Goat Dairy as we host baby goats and the traditional Italian Easter Cheese Roll, or La Ruzzola Del Formaggio. 

An Easter egg hunt for the kids will take place on the lawn following brunch at 2:30pm, and we will have Heritage Homestead’s baby goats back out again this year for petting. 

We will also have our annual  La Ruzzola Del Formaggio competitions at 1pm and 3 pm on the lawn of the Villa.  La “Ruzzola," a traditional Italian game of the rolling of the large wheels of cheese, dates back 3000 years to the Etruscan Tomb of the Olympiads but is now played every Easter in many Italian farming villages. Prizes will be awarded for each winner who can roll their cheese closest to the target.

Assemblaggio! 
Grande Riserva Blending Trials
Very limited seating for these three dates

Available Dates:
Sunday, November 8
Sunday, November 15
Saturday, November 21
1pm-3pm
$40 General Admission | $35 Wine Club

 


We're excited to unveil the first taste of our epic 2019 red wines that benefitted from the extraordinary hot and dry conditions of the vintage, yielding ripe, flavorful wines. After careful aging, these reds are ready for blending and we need you to help us determine the blend for the Raffaldini Grande Riserva!

Assemblaggio is a two-hour educational wine experience led by Owner Jay Raffaldini in our winery barrel room. Each blend you create will be carefully analyzed, sampled and help inspire our new vintage of Grande Riserva. 

This is an opportunity to hone your winemaking knowledge and ability, learn more about grape varietals, and make a few new friends in the process. Blending trials will be held in the barrel room allowing you to experience the winery during the winemaking session.
