Raffaldini is pleased to announce our very limited production release of our Vinello series to you, our loyal wine club members on Saturday May 21st from 1 PM-3 PM. This will be a wine club only event! We will be joined by High Country Boards to bring you a new exclusive wine and food pairing experience.
Vinello is made from rehydrated grape pomace that has completed its work of making excellent wine. Rather than place the pomace in the vineyard to provide nutrition for vines, we decided to referment the pomace by adding enough sugar and water to produce a low alcohol, yet distinctly flavorful, wine. This delicious beverage has historically been consumed by vineyard and winery workers during their daily meal breaks. The French call their version Piquette. We made three different types of Vinello – a bianco made from Vermentino pomace, a rosato made from a co-fermentation of Appassimento Vermentino and Sagrantino, and a rosso made from Teroldego.
In total we produced 100 cases and look forward to sharing them with our wine club members during this release. Due to limited quantities purchases are limited to one case of each by wine club members. $20 a bottle for all three Vinello wines, case discounts are applicable.
