Introducing Pino Vino X

For the last decade Raffaldini Vineyards has officially supported local animal rescue organizations by donating proceeds from the sale of each of its Pino Vino wine releases. The first label featured Pinot, who Jay and Maureen Raffaldini rescued from a kill shelter when she was 1 ½ years old. Over the following eight years the photos of different rescued pets have graced our labels. Each one, along with the hundreds of submissions we received had a moving story and illustrated the love and dedication so many of you have for helping abandoned and abused animals. We thank you for your continued support and have been honored to host these yearly releases. On this 10th year we will once again feature a dog rescued by the Raffaldini family on the label of Pino Vino X. Pino Vino X will also be present for lots of pets and kisses.    


Please join us on June 16, 2018 for a fun filled family afternoon when we release Pino Vino X.

St. Patrick Was Italian, The Villa Turns Ten, New Wines Added to the Menu

 
St. Patrick was Italian! 

Patrick's family was of  Roman decent and lived in Roman-occupied Britannia. As a adolescent, Patrick was taken prisoner by an Irish tribal king and brought back to Ireland. Eventually freed, after a religious pilgrimage to Rome he was appointed a Bishop by Pope Celestine. The story goes that during one of travels in Ireland, Patrick and his followers encountered an Irish tribal king who thought they were there to rob him. However Patrick held out his hand, smiled at him, and the tribal king saw a golden aura around Patrick, and thus the tribal king became the first convert of Patrick in Ireland. Patrick would use the clover in his missionary work which is how the symbol is associated with him today. Click here to learn more.

We invite you to celebrate the feast of St. Patrick with us on Saturday, March 17.

Introducing Our New Wines

We are delighted to share with you three wines in our Spring 2018 Superiore Wine Club Package:

2017 Liguria

Liguria is our Vermentino-based blend named for the province in Northwest Italy where the Vermentino is the predominant white wine. Liguria's cool climate also makes it a great place to grow Pinot Grigio, which is often blended with Vermentino. In a nod to this style of wine we blended some of our Pinot Grigio to create a vibrant wine with refreshing acidity that pairs effortlessly with seafood and white meat. 

2016 Il Falco

Our Sagrantino grape is back in this "Super Umbrian" carefully blended with Montepulciano and Petit Verdot. Named for the home of Sagrantino, Montefalco, this wine is a fitting tribute to wines from the region with immense power and structure. This bold red wine will blow you away. 

2016 Bella Misto

This "Beautiful Mix" is a delicious, dry red wine with restrained tannins and fruit perfect for those informal get togethers. Your friends and neighbors will be delighted by the fresh, vibrant fruit flavors delicately balanced with skillful oak aging.
