Raffaldini is proud to announce a new partnership with Tamia Italian Olive Oils! 

Delicato: This extra virgin olive oil has a medium intense fruity nose of green grass, with sensation of lettuce and unripe sweet almond. The taste has a persistent light aromatic bitterness of grass, flowers and sweet almond. It ends with a light, brief spiciness that leaves room to a velvety bitterness

Robusto: This extra virgin olive oil has an intense green fruity nose of a fresh tomato leaf. The bitterness of tomato berry and slightly intense arugula stands out in the taste, with a short persistence that fades to grassy notes, then leaving room to a very pleasant spiciness of chili pepper.

Easter Celebration
Sunday, April 9th, 2023

Bring the whole family and celebrate Easter with our friends from Heritage Homestead Goat Dairy as we host baby goats and the traditional Italian Easter Cheese Roll, or La Ruzzola Del Formaggio. An Easter egg hunt for the kids will take place on the lawn, and we will have Heritage Homestead’s baby goats back out again this year for petting. We will also have our annual La Ruzzola Del Formaggio competitions at 1pm and 3 pm on the lawn of the Villa. La “Ruzzola," a traditional Italian game of the rolling of the large wheels of cheese, dates back 3000 years to the Etruscan Tomb of the Olympiads but is now played every Easter in many Italian farming villages. Prizes will be awarded for each winner who can roll their cheese closest to the target.

After nearly two decades of having Raffaldini wines available exclusively at the Villa we have found a wholesale distribution firm that targets wine shops and restaurants rather than mass supermarket, etc. We sought to build connections with independent retailers and restaurateurs so we can still tell our story to the sales outlet and build on the connection that we have with all of you. To begin, we agreed to have two value-based wines (Bella Misto and Bianco) as well as higher end (Vermentino Superiore and Montepulciano Riserva) available for sale. 

To locate a store near you, simply go to raffaldini.com then hover your mouse over shop on the header. When the drop down menu appears, click "Find Raffaldini Wines" at the bottom of the list.

Six seats remain! 

You're invited to join Owner Jay Raffaldini and Winemaker Chris Nelson for a very special event to be held at the Winery. Raffaldini Patrimonio (translated from the Italian as Heritage or Legacy) and as the name implies is the flagship wine that we make. Unlike our heralded Grande Riserva which we make in the style of Super Tuscans, Patrimonio is crafted for those who love Napa-style wines.

The salon tasting event will consist of a Blind Tasting of the Patrimonio against four other highly ranked and well known wines along with heavy Hors D'oeuvres. See for yourself how Raffaldini Wine compares to some of the top rated wines in the world. To celebrate this event our sparkling wine Auguri will be served as everyone assembles.  Attendance is limited to sixty people. This year, Christmas comes early for the wine lover on your list! Give the gift of wine this holiday season.

Raffaldini Pairs with Second Harvest of NWNC 

 

We are proud to partner with the Second Harvest Food Bank of NWNC. We believe that addressing hunger and its roots causes is a responsibility shared by the public and private sectors and concerned individuals to ensure the health, vitality, and well-being of our communities and nation. 

We believe that building a vibrant, resilient, and thriving community requires that we challenge ourselves and others to deeper levels of conversation and action.

We believe that everyone has gifts to share toward ending hunger and its root causes: our time, our talents, our voice, and our food and financial resources. 

Please bring a non-perishable food item as we "fill the barrel with food" for the Second Harvest Food Bank of NWNC. Here is a list of the most needed items. Or you can make a donation here

2019 Patrimonio Release 
Saturday, December 10 | 1:00pm-3:00pm 
Free for Wine Club Members | $20 Per Person for Wine Club Guests

 
You're invited to join Owner Jay Raffaldini and Winemaker Chris Nelson for a very special event to be held at the winery. Raffaldini Patrimonio (translated from the Italian as Heritage or Legacy) will be released on Saturday, December 10th and as the name implies is the flagship wine that we make. Unlike our heralded Grande Riserva which we make in the style of Super Tuscans, Patrimonio is crafted for those who love Napa-style wines.

Jay Raffaldini invites you to the beautiful botti barrel room at the winery for the release of the inaugural release of our Patrimonio. This wine is an icon of Raffaldini Vineyards; a representation of more than twenty years of pioneering winemaking. An opaque, brooding, and intense red wine made from Montepulciano, Petit Verdot, and Sagrantino grapes, aged in 100% new French Oak evokes a luxurious symphony of flavor, leaning in with dark fruits, spice, and earth. 

We invite you to stop by on Saturday, December 10, chat with Jay about how we made the Patrimonio, and enjoy a complimentary sample of this extraordinary release. Patrimonio is a limited-quantity wine. Bottles will be available for sale to enjoy or to take home while quantities last.
