Profile Information

Company Name
Raffaldini Vineyards & Winery, LLC
About my company:
At Raffaldini Vineyards we provide an authentic Italian experience, complete with food, wine, art and hospitality. When you visit the vineyards you will experience a sense of being in Tuscany as you stroll the landscaped grounds that feature olive trees, roses, rosemary bushes, lavender; fig trees and much more. You will see original Italian artwork in our Tuscan-style villa which overlooks a traditional Italian piazza centered around a beautiful fountain, all against the backdrop of the Blue Ridge mountains.

And then there is the wine. We focus on hand-crafting Italian-style wines using traditional vineyard and winemaking methods as practiced by the Raffaldini family centuries ago. Our goal is that when uncorked, a bottle of Raffaldini wine will evoke the Italian ideals of a slower pace of life and an emphasis on friends, family, great food and, of course, reflection. There is always something extra happening at Raffaldini Vineyards, from the Italian Festival to featuring an artist from Forli, Italy. Come and join La Famiglia Raffaldini for a complete Italian experience at Raffaldini Vineyards.
