Grande Riserva Release
Saturday, December 4 | 1pm-3pm

Wine Club Members, enjoy the first taste of our 2019 Grande Riserva! The Raffaldini 2019 Grande Riserva represents our finest efforts yet. The great growing conditions of that year produced a wine with the fruit levels of the 97-pointed 2017 vintage, yet we were able to introduce more elements that make this reminiscent of a great Super Tuscan wine. This is a gem that can age well over a decade with the wine really opening up in 2025. Due to the difficult weather in 2020, we did not produce a Grande Riserva, so after this release, the next Grande Riserva will not out until December 2023 / January 2024.

Join us for the release party at the Raffaldini winery on Saturday, December 4th from 1 to 3 pm at the winery. This free event is for wine club members only. Enjoy this limited opportunity to taste the 2019 Grande Riserva before it goes to bottle sales only. We will be serving light food to enjoy with your tasting. Please click to RSVP. The event starts promptly at 1pm so please arrive on time. 

Grande Riserva will go onto sale in the Villa the following weekend and we don't expect it to last very long!
