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.

Raffaldini Vineyards Reveals Pino Vino IX Rescue Dog Ambassador

Ronda, N.C., (June 17, 2017)—Raffaldini Vineyards released Pino Vino IX on Saturday and unveiled this year’s rescue dog competition ambassador, Bentley, who is featured on the wine’s label.

“This year’s ambassador is not only a rescue dog, but works to serve people in a way that benefits everyone,” said Raffaldini Vineyards owner and winemaker, Jay Raffaldini. “It is astounding what is possible with just a little love and compassion.”

A Yorkie from Cornelius, N.C., Bentley was found in poor health, timid anxious and fearful of humans. With love, care and lots of nurturing, he became the happiest, “fur-legged” little boy. Currently training as a service dog, Bentley hopes to help others with anxiety issues.

As with previous Pino Vino wine releases, a portion of proceeds from sales will go to benefit local animal shelters. Pino Vino IX is available exclusively at Raffaldini Vineyards.

Big Reds Almost Out!

Our 2014 Montepulciano Riserva will be sold out before the end of June.

James calls it "A medium fruity wine with firm tannins and a juicy undertone. Tangy acidity and a clean finish. Has the earthy, fruity character of Montepulciano." The 2014 Montepulciano Riserva will sell out approximately six weeks prior to the release of the 2015 Montepulciano Riserva.

The NC Department of Transportation has begun the process of paving Groce Road.
