Between the grandeur of the mountains of Western North Carolina and the extensive coastline to the east, there’s no shortage of fantastic views in the Tar Heel State — however there are some that just stand out above the rest. Raffaldini Vineyard is one of those places where you’ll find nothing less than jaw-dropping scenery.What people are saying about Raffaldini Vineyards:
"Such a gem. Far enough from city life to be a nice escape and close enough to get to easily. Honestly, most of the wines were quite good. I had a perfect afternoon with a girlfriend, sipping wine and eating artisan crackers with delicious cheese options!"
"My favorite vineyard! Everyone is "famiglia"! If you love classic Italian red wines, this is the place for you. And the views overlooking mountains and vineyards are the best around. Step back in time and soak in the beauty and feeling of old world Italy."
"Raffaldini's is the best winery NC has to offer. It looks like a small chunk of Italy was transported to Rhonda, NC!! The wines are really good and aren't all sweet. Grounds are stunning. So romantic. I love this place and can't wait to go back!!"
"Absolutely beautiful views with a romantic atmosphere! We were greeted immediately upon entering the tasting room. Our host was super personable and made the tasting experience memorable. Overall we enjoyed our experience and will definitely be back!"
"We were blown away by the view and overall charm of the vineyard and tasting room. We purchased a bottle of pinot noir from their very friendly staff and enjoyed time sipping it on their terrace admiring the amazing view. You will not be disappointed."
"The drive in feels like you're entering an Italian villa. The visit was so enjoyable, the staff and the wine made the it so relaxing. After the tasting we enjoyed a glass on the patio while looking out at the beautiful mountains and vineyards. "

There are a lot of wineries in this area of the YadkinValley but none quite like this Italy inspired winery that makes you think you've landed in Tuscany!
