Introducing Pino Vino X

The Pino Vino Wine Label Competition is coming to a conclusion with this year’s label. Throughout the last ten years, many of you have participated in the Pino Vino wine release by submitting your rescue animal for consideration to be on each year’s label. Raffaldini Vineyards has been honored to host this competition, and we have all grown to appreciate even more the efforts people make to rescue animals. In its first year, Pino Vino featured the Raffaldini family rescue dog, Pinot, who originally hailed from Athens, GA. Over the years, various local rescue organizations have received donations based on the sale of Pino Vino wine. While the Pino Vino X label has been chosen, it will not be the end of Raffaldini Vineyards' participation in animal rescue organizations.

Please mark your calendars now to join us at Raffaldini Vineyards on June 16, 2018 for the release of Pino Vino X.

Raffaldini October Newsletter

October is Italian Heritage Month
 













This month we honor our families and others who made the journey from Italy to the United States in search of a better life. We especially  honor and remember our maternal grandparents, Urbano Di Renzo and his wife Amelia De Felice Di Renzo (pictured in the photo on the right), who both came to the United States from Abruzzo as young adults in the 1910s, and our father Jerome L. Raffaldini, (pictured far left in the photo on the left), who was born in Mantova, Italy. Our father at the age of 29 visited New York City in 1951 on a business trip. He liked what he saw in New York, including our mother, Theresa Di Renzo (daughter of Urbano and Amelia; pictured with her arm in his in the photo at left), and decided to stay. Our father instilled in us the desire to work hard and follow our dreams.    

We'd love to hear from you, share your story with us using the hashtag #IAHM on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. For more info, visit:

Celebrate All Things Italian with Us at Our Biggest Event of the Year!

 
 
Vine to Wine Guests Experience Harvest at Raffaldini Vineyards

Last Friday under picture-perfect skies a group of Raffaldini patrons got the experience of a lifetime harvesting and processing fruit from our vineyards alongside Owner and Winemaker Jay Raffaldini and the rest of the winemaking team. The group harvested Sangiovese and Sagrantino and after lunch headed over to the winery to remove the Passito, or dehydrated fruit, from the Fruttaio (drying room) to begin the fermentation process.  Then they refilled the racks with freshly-picked fruit ready to begin the Appassimento process. Click here to watch FOX 8 WGHP's coverage of Vine to Wine.

Winery Update
Production of our first-ever traditional method sparkling wine 
 
Last month we harvested grapes for our inaugural vintage of a traditional sparkling wine called Aguri. We looked at the weather forecast closely to time the harvest for peak acidity and to meet our strict fermentation requirements, since every step of the process requires absolute precision. There is no room for error. Fermentation of the base wines is currently in progress, and we could not be happier with the results. The next phase will include a secondary fermentation in bottle and finish with the disgorgement of yeast to clarify the finished wine.
 
 
September is NC Wine Month

On August 29, Raffaldini Vineyards participated along with a select number of wineries from across the state at an industry kickoff event. Governor Roy Cooper and Commissioner of Agriculture Steve Troxler addressed the crowd of industry members and journalists, and Governor Cooper signed the official NC Wine Month proclamation. The state's wine industry brings in more than $2.5 billion to the state's economy and employs over 5000 North Carolinians. Look for select Raffaldini wines at exclusive retailers across the state
