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:

Jay Raffaldini here.


With so much happening this past week, I wanted to take the time to provide you all with an update. Hurricane Florence could not have come at a more challenging time given its remnants hit the weekend of our annual Raffaldini Festa Italiana. We have held this event for 12 years always on the third Saturday of September. The event has become so popular we routinely have 1500 to 2000 people attending with folks driving in from multiple states to join in the celebration. Hence, we made the decision to move Festa to Saturday, October 20th after significant discussion. Even if the storm had detoured around us, I found it very hard to have a joyous festival when many of our fellow North Carolinians were risking life and property. Our thoughts and prayers go to everyone impacted by this storm. I hope you are all able to attend this signature Raffaldini event in October and apologies for any inconveniences it has placed upon anyone.
 
On a much less important note, as most of you know we hang our grapes as long as possible to get the deepest and most fruitful extraction to create the "big" house style of our wines. Given the cooler and wetter than normal July we had, the grapes were behind schedule, so we were faced with the decision to either bring in less than perfectly-developed, ripe grapes and make a leaner style of wine or let the grapes hang through the storm, take the losses and see what happens. My career on Wall Street has taught me one thing and that is the only bad risk is the one you don't take. So, with that mantra we decided to let 42 tons of Montepulciano, Sagrantino and Petit Verdot hang. We took some losses but survived and we are letting the fruit hang as long as we can. If we can get another week of sunny and dry weather, we will have "weathered the storm" so to speak. Just another reminder that no matter how much we believe otherwise, we are all passengers on life's journey.
 
Best always,
 
Jay
