Riserva Flights Coming In February!
 
We are thrilled to announce that in February we will be offering a Riserva flight from older vintages of Grand Riserva, Montepulciano, Sagrantino and an occasional special wine from our cellars.  We have acquired a specialized pouring machine custom made in Italy that will allow the wine to be preserved for weeks rather than days thus eliminating spoilage.  Due to limited availability of the older vintages, the wines will be able to be tasted through the flights or buy glass but unfortunately no bottles sales.  Stay tuned for more information.

Happy Holiday Season from our Famiglia to Yours!
 
From our family to yours, we would like to wish you all a safe and happy Holiday season. Our tasting room and grounds are closed on Christmas Eve, December 24, Christmas Day, December 25 and New Years Day, January 1, to allow our staff an opportunity to celebrate with their family, friends, and loved ones. 

All other days this month we will maintain our regular hours. We invite you to cozy up at the Villa for a quiet escape or reconnect with friends and loved ones for a toast to the year ahead!

 

Raffaldini is pleased to introduce its first NFT, Non-Fungible Token, Grande Riserva 2017!
 
We selected the Grande Riserva 2017 to introduce to the digital space in commemoration of the 20 years that Raffaldini Vineyards has been operational. To further celebrate this once in a lifetime opportunity the lucky buyer will also receive a 20 year Classico wine club membership which provides access to members-only events, discounts on merchandise as well as event tickets, and 6 bottles of wine, twice a year. We are incredibly excited to offer the world’s first virtual wine bottle NFT and look forward to updating you.  Click here to learn more about this incredible opportunity and a chance to bid.
Last Chance! Auguri
 
We are just about sold out of our current vintage Auguri, our traditional-method sparkling wine! Get yours in time for your holiday celebrations and before we sell out! The next vintage won't be available until early Spring.

Auguri is a common toast in Italy meaning “to your health and happiness” though please remember in Italy it is bad luck to click your glasses. Lively bubbles greet the palate followed by thirst-quenching acidity carrying hints of green apple, honeysuckle and mineral aromas. Auguri goes with every food imaginable owing to it’s acidity and neutral tannic profile.

Raffaldini Releases 2017 Grande Riserva NFT (Non Fungible Token)

Raffaldini is pleased to introduce its first NFT, Non-fungible Token, Grande Riserva 2017!

 

We are introducing this Grande Riserva NFT onto the digital marketplace. We have selected the 2017 Grande Riserva, to commemorate the 20 years that Raffaldini Vineyards has been operational. 

 

To further celebrate this once in a lifetime opportunity the lucky buyer will also receive a 20 year Classico wine club membership which provides access to members-only events, discounts on merchandise as well as event tickets, and 6 bottles of wine, twice a year. 

 

Many of you are already well familiar with the wine, but what is a non-fungible token(NFT)?

 

Think of it as collectible digital pieces of art or commemorations. Traditionally, physical art has been replicated, reprinted or faked, and requires an expert to verify the legitimacy, but NFT’s are backed by blockchain, a digital record of each transaction, allowing anyone to verify its legitimacy.

 

The flight of the Bumble Bee defies physics; their wings are too small and don't flap fast enough to support their weight. Yet somehow, through the sheer force of their will and determination, they fly. Given the nearly impossible climate conditions in North Carolina, we should not have been able to make such a spectacular wine, yet we did. Montepulciano, Petit Verdot, and Sagrantino grapes were all harvested at optimal ripeness, triple-sorted, and then dried heavily using the Appassimento drying process to further concentrate the grapes natural flavors and aromas. We give you the 2017 Grande Riserva.

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!

Raffaldini Wines Win Big at International Sommelier Challenge

Raffaldini Wins Big at Sommelier Challenge International Wine Competition
We are thrilled to announce our most recent round of awards at the 2021 Sommelier Challenge Competition held in California! Founded by the late, great wine expert, Robert Whitley, this competition is known in the wine world as one of the toughest and best respected competitions due to its strict grading standards and highly qualified judging panel.

This year's chief judge, "Super Somm" Jesse Rodriguez, is formally educated in wine including credentials from four different sommelier organizations. He also worked at Napa's famous French Laundry restaurant and was a part of the team that won its first three-Michelin star award. 

Desaria, which topped the Vermentino varietal category is our newest release in the Fall Wine Club package along with the 94-point, platinum medal winning 2019 Sagrantino, and 93-point, gold medal winner, Montepulciano Riserva. All of these wines are currently available while supplies last. Don't miss an opportunity to taste and collect these exceptional wines.

Our second release of this wine is composed of our Vermentino grapes and for the first time we blended in some white (yes white) Montepulciano. Simply put, Desaria is a white wine that wants to be a red wine. To this end we treat this wine in the winery like we would treat any red wine through extended skin contact, fermenting and aging in oak as well as liberal use of the Appassimento drying process. The end result is a wonderfully rich and enticing full-bodied white that is unlike any white made in North Carolina or anywhere in the country for that matter. We are extremely proud of this wine, and we hope you like it as much as we do.


Winner: Best Vermentino, 92 Points, Gold
