Enjoy a centuries-old Italian wine experience in the South
The Raffaldini family has been celebrating special events with homemade wine for nearly 700 years, and for the past 10 years it has shared that centuries-old experience as one of North Carolina’s wineries. Raffaldini is an award-winning estate winery nestled on a hillside location in the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains near Ronda in Wilkes County. The family dates back to 1348 in Italy, but in 2000 decided to develop its wine in the new world and chose North Carolina’s Yadkin Valley, known for its fertile soil and two American Viticultural Areas (AVAs). Seeking to share their sense of family and place, the Raffaldinis found the perfect location in North Carolina’s mountains that reminded them of their homeland. They created a vineyard with a Tuscan-style villa and tasting room. Now visitors can enjoy an Italian experience at the winery, vineyard and tasting room, which hosts hundreds of weddings and events each year. But most importantly, visitors can get a taste of the Old World in the flavor of Raffaldini’s wines.
