Fiori Wine Bottle Just in time for summer, Our new Fiori! Available Now.
 
We are pleased to announce the release of our newest version of Fiori (translated from the Italian as Flowers), our only off-dry wine. This year, we decided to move away from the traditional off-dry white or rosé and make a red version. Off-dry reds are quite uncommon in Italy with the exception of two regions in the North where they make a wine called Lambrusco. Lambrusco is a wine many of us grew up with and is often made in a frizzante (soft bubbles) style, we decided to make ours a still wine. It’s a very unique wine that must be served quite chilled. We hope you enjoy it this summer starting this 4th of July weekend!

Fall 2021 Wine Club Coming Soon!

 
Ciao Wine Club Members -
We are excited to announce the pickup date of our Fall Wine Club Package which Jay considers our finest ever!  
 
On Saturday, August 7, and Sunday August 8, Wine Club Pick Up will be held at the Winery. Jay Raffaldini will be on site both days to lead a lively discussion of the wine club wines. On Saturday August 7, he will be joined by our talented winemaker Chris Nelson. On both days, tastings of each wine club wine will be available, and we will also have food and tastings of new wines. There will also be drawings of fun prizes throughout each day so be sure to enter to win when you arrive. There is no cost to participate in the drawings, but you must be present to win.
 

Package Contents
 
The Fall Wine club package contains two bottles each of three new wine vintages of our most sought-after varietals. Your wine club package will contain the following wines: 
  • 2 Bottles 2020 Desaria (Full-bodied Vermentino utilizing Appassimentoextended skin contact and oak fermentation)
  • 2 Bottles 2019 Montepulciano Riserva (Our signature varietal, hearty, fruit forward red)
  • 2 Bottles 2019 Sagrantino (Robust, savory red wine made with epic tannins) 










The 2019 Montepulciano Riserva and 2019 Sagrantino benefitted significantly from the perfect weather and prodigious use of the Appassimento drying process as well as fermentation in oak. They are deeply structured, full-bodied reds that are dark and brooding, definitely not to timid souls. The 2020 Desaria, a white wine that we made like a red wine, is a joy with incredible aromatics, color and acid. This year's Desaria included not just dried and whole cluster pressed Vermentino, but also white (yes white) Montepulciano blended in.

The package also contains a letter from Jay and recipes to pair with each wine from Barbara. If you cannot join us for the wine club release, you will have the opportunity to hear from Jay Raffaldini on these new wines via Zoom in the weeks following the release.

Wine Releases


Cellar Release of 2015 Montepulciano Riserva
Available for Sale


We are proud to announce the re-release of our highest rated Montepulciano Riserva, the heralded 2015 vintage. Jay made the decision to cellar this wine for an additional five (5) years, and it is at its peak development of flavor and aroma. He set aside 200 cases and because we expect demand to be exceptionally strong, we are limiting purchase amounts to two (2) cases for wine club members and six bottles for non-wine club members. Once our 2015 Montepulciano Riserva is sold out, there will be no further Montepulciano Riserva available until we release our 2019 vintage this Fall.

Mother's Day Family Day at Raffaldini
Sunday, May 9 | 12pm - 5pm


In Italy, la mamma is the cornerstone of the home and celebrated by her family all year round. But every second Sunday of May, bambini and adults alike lavish their mothers with flowers and gifts for La Festa della Mamma. Mother’s Day was first celebrated in Italy in May 1957, about 50 years after it was founded in the United States. A parish priest began the tradition in Assisi with great festivities. Many in the surrounding cities got word and joined the appreciation of the women whose unconditional love and hard work helped them become who they are. The day was so successful that just one year later, the holiday was adopted across Italy’s 20 regions. Today, Mother’s Day is as widely celebrated in Italy, as it is the United States. Children of all ages head home to visit in time for La Festa della Mamma.


Show Mamma how much you love her and bring her Chianti in the Carolinas - Raffaldini on May 9. Each mother (or mother figure) will receive a flower and chocolate Baci. Heritage Homestead Goat Dairy will be onsite with goats and there will be activities for children.

Gallo Nero Release April 25

Hi All,

I hope this finds everyone healthy and safe. 

As we emerge from winter and enter spring with a renewed sense of optimism and belief that the future will hold ever more promise of good tidings, I sought to find a way to remember the ordeal that all of us have suffered both individually and collectively. I asked myself has anything positive come from the sheltering in place and long periods of working for home. The more I reflected upon it the more I saw a silver lining. That ray of sunshine was the vast amount of time families spent together under one roof and were effectively reunited. It reminded me of a period not so long ago when families cooked and dined together, spent nights as one and just enjoyed each other’s company.

So, the question for me is how do I honor that with a wine? In my mind I go back a few decades ago to when life was simpler and slower and being together was the rule not the exception. During that period one wine was quite commonly found in Italian restaurants and grocery stores and that was a Chianti sold in straw bottles known as ‘fiascos." Everyone over forty years old remember these bottles adorning checkered cloth tables and once the wine was consumed, they became candle holders with the red and green wax drippings on the bottle. What many did not know is that the fiasco bottle held 1-liter worth of wine, 33% more than a standard bottle which is probably why so many people left the dinner table very happy.

I began a long search to find a glass producer in Italy who makes these fiasco bottles. When I located him, he was of course amused there is an Italian style vineyard in North Carolina (which by the way is a state he never heard of). He asked how many I wanted and when I told him he said sure I can get you twenty-three. I said no I need twenty-three hundred and I think he fainted. Anyway, I have secured the bottles and we have crafted a beautiful Sangiovese blend called Gallo Nero (Black Rooster in Italian, the symbol of Chianti). The wine is more structured than the typical Sangiovese blends we make as I wanted it to pair with much more than “red sauce." It is a gem and when you purchase one of these commemorative bottles you will also receive a red or green candle so the Raffaldini fiasco (no pun intended) can have a second life.

I hope all of you can join me for the limited release of this one-time wine on the lawn at the Villa on Sunday, April 25th, where I will be describing the wine, pouring samples, and signing the bottles. As we look forward to the future let us always reminisce on some of life’s happier moments from the past.

All my best,

Jay

Upcoming Events
Easter At Raffaldini Vineyards
Sunday, April 4 | 12:00pm
 


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 following brunch at 2:30pm, 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.
