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 Releases Rescue Dog Red Wine Saturday; Honors Dr. Ruth Gillis

Ronda, N.C., (June 14, 2018)—Saturday, June 16th, Raffaldini Vineyards will release and Pino Vino X, a limited-edition red wine featuring the Raffaldini family rescue dogs with proceeds benefitting local animal shelters. 

“The enthusiasm and support for this competition demonstrates the love we all share for our rescue animals,” said Raffaldini Vineyards owner, Jay Raffaldini. “We hope this competition will continue to raise awareness of the need for and importance of animal rescue.”

For the last decade, Raffaldini Vineyards has supported local animal rescue organizations by donating proceeds from the sale of each Pino Vino wine release.

Pino Vino X sells for $20 per bottle.

On Saturday, guests can meet the Raffaldini family, rescue dogs Dolce and Nero, as well as taste and purchase bottles of Pino Vino X while supplies last. Raffaldini Vineyards will also honor Dr. Ruth Gillis, Vet and Owner of Forsyth Veterinary Hospital, who has been immersed in the Triad animal welfare and rescue community for more than 17 years. Adoptable pets from Ashe Humane Society, Surry Animal Rescue and the Humane Society of Davie County will be in attendance.
