Raffaldini Vineyards | Charlotte NC Travel & Tourism
The official travel resource

The Raffaldini family dates back to the year 1348 in the town of Mantua, located in the Northern Province of Lombardy, Italy. To this day, the family owns and lives on the land that is their ancestral home. The romantic town of Verona, home to Juliet Capulet of Romeo and Juliet, lies just to the North.

The fusion of family, food and wine is an integral part of our daily life. For more than six hundred and fifty years, the Raffaldini family has witnessed many historic events and has often marked such occasions with special family dinners and homemade Italian wine.

As you enter our Tuscan-style Villa tasting room, let the spirit of the Raffaldini family history, importance of family and celebration of life transport you to our ancestral home. The wine, food and artwork within hold deep meaning for the Raffaldini family and we are delighted to share them with you. Close your eyes as you taste our wine and be transported to Italy...

Raffaldini Vineyards Private Label Group Tour

This private behind-the-scenes tour of the winery and vineyard allows groups to experience the creation of a bottle of Raffaldini wine from start to finish. With an expert tour guide (occasionally a Raffaldini family member), participants are led through the process of what happens to the grapes from harvest until they are transformed into a bottle of wine. Starting in the winery and then moving to the vineyards, participants see where the grapes are grown and learn about the different varietals.
