Ciao {FIRST_NAME}
 
The red wine you've been waiting for, 2014 Grande Riserva, now available for purchasegrr
Grande Riserva, as the name implies, represents the utmost and very best efforts of all that we do from the vineyard to the winery. In making this limited quantity wine, we used the finest and oldest Montepulciano, Petit Verdot and Sagrantino grapes, harvested at optimal ripeness and then triple sorted to create a decadent, powerful wine with a focused expression of Raffaldini Vineyards. We applied the Appassimento drying process to further concentrate the grapes' natural flavors and aromas. Finally, we placed the grapes in oak fermenters to further deepen the profile and age the wine in the best oak barrels available.

Less than 75 cases of this wine are available at $55 per bottle. Purchase limits are one case per person for wine club members and six bottles per person for the general public.

Award Winning Yadkin Valley Winemakers Collaborate on On Second Red Wine Blend Offering

Award Winning Yadkin Valley Winemakers Collaborate on On Second Red Wine Blend Offering

Pilot Mountain and Ronda, N.C., February 15, 2018 – On Saturday, March 10, 2018, JOLO Winery & Vineyards and Raffaldini Vineyards will host back-to-back special release events for their second red wine blend collaboration, RARA Sisboombah.

The wine is a collaboration among longtime friends, JW Ray and Jay Raffaldini. Both men are dedicated to producing higher quality wines and serve as passionate advocates for the growth potential of the Yadkin Valley wine region. 

"My great friend JW is a quintessential winemaker of unsurpassed skill, Owner Jay Raffaldini, said. “I’m excited to once again create a wine that represents our shared passion and the many years of dedication to our craft.” 

This year's RARA Sisboombah was produced by blending JOLO's 2016 Crimson Creek “Reserve” with the 2016 Raffaldini Montepulciano Riserva. The inaugural offering sold out in less than three days.


"My reverence for Jay for bringing old world wine techniques to this region to massage the European varietal characteristics out of North Carolina grapes cannot be overstated." JOLO founder JW Ray said. "The entire Raffaldini team continues to raise the bar for all of us. Jay is a true visionary and an inspiration. I’m very fortunate to call him a great friend. I couldn’t be more excited about this 2nd bottling of this world-class wine."

Raffaldini and Ray will co-host two gatherings on Saturday, March 10th, where they will share their winemaking stories over light refreshments. The first event will take place at Raffaldini Vineyards beginning at noon. Reservations can be made by clicking here. The second gathering will begin at approximately 2:30 p.m. at JOLO Winery & Vineyards.  This event is open to the public. 

A very limited number of bottles will be available for sale at JOLO and Raffaldini Vineyards while supplies last. Bottles are priced at $40.

Introducing Pino Vino X

The Pino Vino Wine Label Competition is coming to a conclusion with this year’s label. Throughout the last ten years, many of you have participated in the Pino Vino wine release by submitting your rescue animal for consideration to be on each year’s label. Raffaldini Vineyards has been honored to host this competition, and we have all grown to appreciate even more the efforts people make to rescue animals. In its first year, Pino Vino featured the Raffaldini family rescue dog, Pinot, who originally hailed from Athens, GA. Over the years, various local rescue organizations have received donations based on the sale of Pino Vino wine. While the Pino Vino X label has been chosen, it will not be the end of Raffaldini Vineyards' participation in animal rescue organizations.

Please mark your calendars now to join us at Raffaldini Vineyards on June 16, 2018 for the release of Pino Vino X.
