Nestled in the rolling foothills of the Swan Creek Wine Appellation within the Yadkin Valley, family-owned Raffaldini Vineyards brings Tuscan charm to North Carolina. Known widely as “Chianti in the Carolinas” Raffaldini currently produces only classically dry Italian style wines ranging from reds like Sangiovese Classico, Montepulciano Riserva, Sagrantino and Grande Riserva with the white being Vermentino and a sparking Prosecco style wine called Auguri. Raffaldini hosts public and private events throughout the year and is the definitive place for lovers of dry wines.


Walk-ins are accepted and will be seated if we have availability but there is no guarantee of seating without a reservation.

Private events still require an email reservation sent to [email protected] In order to comply with federal and local laws, please bring a photo ID which will verify that you are over 21 years old. We ID all customers.
