Ciao {FIRST_NAME}
 
The red wine you've been waiting for, 2014 Grande Riserva, now available for purchasegrr
Grande Riserva, as the name implies, represents the utmost and very best efforts of all that we do from the vineyard to the winery. In making this limited quantity wine, we used the finest and oldest Montepulciano, Petit Verdot and Sagrantino grapes, harvested at optimal ripeness and then triple sorted to create a decadent, powerful wine with a focused expression of Raffaldini Vineyards. We applied the Appassimento drying process to further concentrate the grapes' natural flavors and aromas. Finally, we placed the grapes in oak fermenters to further deepen the profile and age the wine in the best oak barrels available.

Less than 75 cases of this wine are available at $55 per bottle. Purchase limits are one case per person for wine club members and six bottles per person for the general public.

She isn’t won over by his pleas of love and things get worse when she has an offer of marriage from the self-important Sergeant Belcore. When a dubious salesman, Dulcamara, rolls into town he offers Nemorino what seems like the perfect solution.

RARA Round Three: Raffaldini and JOLO Continue Highly Rated Wine Collaboration

 

Pilot Mountain and Ronda, N.C., January 29, 2019 – On Saturday, March 9, 2019, JOLO Winery & Vineyards and Raffaldini Vineyards will once again host back-to-back special release events for their third annual wine blend collaboration, RARA Sisboombah.

This year, award-winning winemakers and North Carolina viticulture advocates Jay Raffaldini and JW Ray and have changed the blend from prior releases based on the best wines available in their cellars.

Last year's offering earned a 90-point rating by James Suckling.

"We have had so much fun with this collaboration, says Raffaldini. "Fans of both wineries really seem to enjoy the two wines we have produced together." Ray adds, "Last year's RARA sold out in less than three days. With the growing interest in our collaboration, we fully expect a similar (if not quicker) depletion of the inventory of this full-bodied, well-balanced red wine blend. It's one for the ages!"

Raffaldini and Ray will co-host two gatherings on Saturday, March 9th, where they will share their winemaking stories over complimentary passed appetizers. The first event will take place at Raffaldini Vineyards beginning at noon The second gathering will begin at approximately 2:00 p.m. at JOLO Winery & Vineyards.  Both events are open to the public and no reservation is required.

A very limited number of bottles will be available for sale at JOLO and Raffaldini Vineyards while supplies last. Bottles are priced at $45.
