Raffaldini Vineyards Among 7 Truly Underrated U.S. Wineries Outside Of California

5. Raffaldini Vineyards & Winery, Ronda, North Carolina

In the rolling foothills of the Yadkin Valley about an hour north of Charlotte, North Carolina, Raffaldini Vineyards & Winery focuses exclusively on dry Italian wines, earning it the nickname “the Chianti of the Carolinas.”

Using estate-grown vermentino, Montepulciano, and other grapes, Raffaldini embraces the medieval Italian winemaking technique known as appassimento. Rather than stomping freshly harvested fruit, Raffaldini dries its grapes, resulting in a unique complexity and higher alcohol content.

New Entrance Sign

The new entrance sign is made of a seamless continuous piece of Tennessee field stone that weighs 7.5 tons in total. Jay Raffaldini personally sourced it from a quarry as it needed to exactly fit the style, shape and color that he desired. The family name Raffaldini was sandblasted over four days and the rock is so hard it took over ¼ ton of sand. Jay wanted a work of art by the entrance gate, and with the completion of the paving of Groce Road in August, the grand new sweeping entrance to the vineyard will be complete. 
Beyond The Vines...Into the Community
Raffaldini Vineyards is proud of its continued support of the musical performing arts.

Pino Vino X Release! Thanks to everyone who attended our release.

Thank you to Dr. Ruth Gillis, the animal shelters, and all of you for helping us celebrate this milestone Pino Vino release. Animals in need were adopted at the event and we were able to raise money in support of local animal shelters. You, too, can help us support local animal shelters by purchasing bottles of Pino Vino. While this release marks the end of our Pino Vino campaign, our love and support for animals is unceasing. Look for future wine releases from Raffaldini as we will branch out to bring awareness to our many other passions.
