Raffaldini Vineyards & Winery
The Raffaldini experience was wonderful. Though it was rainy this afternoon, we sat under cover outside and were comfortable. The wine flights were the best we have experienced with more than the usual amount of wine in each glass. The wines were all dry and tasty. We will recommend Raffaldini to our family and friends. And hopefully go back again soon.
This winery is by far one of the most beautiful wineries I have ever been to. And the staff was wonderful!! Very informative on the wines we sampled and very attentive making sure we were satisfied during our visit. If you are looking for a quiet spot, you dont have to worry about kids running around screaming, and you can just sit back, relax, and enjoy the views and wine, I highly recommend Raffaldini! 10/10 WOULD recommend!
Yesterday, I had a reservation for 1. I walked around to the tent. There wasnt a hostess available when I got there so I walked inside and was told to sit outside at one of the chairs to be waited on. After a few minutes, I was asked if Id like a menu and some water (it was hot outside hot outside). The menu and water came after several minutes. The menu is small but it took awhile for her to come back and ask me if I decided on one of the three flight options. She came back with a stand of wine glasses (nice presentation), she set it on the table and walked off I wasnt sure which wine was which. So I walked inside and asked her where I should start. ***its a spiral presentation, so you start at the top, FYI. I think there was only one waitress for the piazza. Thats why I felt overlooked. I wasnt offered a food menu so good thing I wasnt hungry No one checked on me after I was given my flight. I paid and left. I later confirm they were short staffed, but I dont have sympathy for that when I hear and see the tables around me being waited on. I gave a couple stars for the scenery and manicured landscape.
Just wow! The scenery alone was worth the trip to Raffaldini Vineyards! We enjoyed an entire afternoon on the property with some friends to celebrate my husband's birthday! We brought a picnic and ate together and did both the tasting/tour as well as the seated flight. The flights give A LOT of wine so both isn't really necessary but we enjoyed the tour and hearing more about the vineyard and the owners. We will be back soon!
If I could give a negative review I would. We walked in with a group of 10 family members to enjoy some wine during Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Their large heated tent had two tables with people and we were told they could not serve us because we were a group of 10. We gladly split up the group into two tables but were still told by our server that the manager (who didnt even have the nerve to come outside and address the group) that they would not serve us because we were a group of 10!! 10 paying customers!!! Insane!!! I have never experienced an establishment throwing out paying customers because their group was too large!! The absolute worst customer service I have ever experienced!! Our server Melissa was very kind and I felt horrible that she had to deliver that news while her manager coward in the background unwilling to address us!!! Shame on her!!! I would never recommend this establishment and will never give them my business.
