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 October Newsletter

 
Beyond The Vines...Into the Community
While we were fortunate to have been spared any major impact from Hurricane Florence, we are sensitive to the needs of our fellow Carolinians who did not fare as well. So for the month of October we will be partnering with the Second Harvest Food Bank to collect and deliver canned food and other non perishable food items to those in need. We ask you to please bring in a canned food or non perishable food item with you when you visit Raffaldini Vineyards. We will be taking donation through the month of October and will deliver all donations to Second Harvest Food Bank to distribute to those in need. Look for the Donation Barrel by the entrance of the Villa.

October is Italian American Heritage Month

This month we honor our family who made the journey from Italy to the United States in search of a better life and the American Dream. The Raffaldini family celebrate their maternal grandparents, Urbano and Amelia, who came to the US from Abruzzo in 1910s, and their father (pictured above on the left next to their mother) who came to the US in early 1950s. We would love to hear your story so please share with us using the hashtag #IAHM on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. For more info, visit:
