    About: Ciao Asheville and Metro Wines Present Raffaldini Vineyards Tasting

     

    Ciao Asheville and Metro Wines kick off 2023 with an “on the house” tasting of Raffaldini Vineyards wine. The tasting is Wednesday, February 8th, 5:00-6:30pm “at the bar” at Metro Wines, 169 Charlotte Street, Asheville. 

     

    Raffaldini is located in Ronda, North Carolina, in the rolling foothills of the Swan Creek Wine Appellation within the Yadkin Valley. This family-owned winery 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, whites like Vermentino and a sparkling Prosecco style wine.

     

    This is a great opportunity to meet Raffaldini’s winemaker who will present several wines to taste and discuss the Italian varietals they grow. They also use an old winemaking method from north eastern Italy, called appasimento, to dry the grapes before crushing to create wines from North Carolina with more depth and character in this notoriously wet climate.  

     

    This event is free and no registration is necessary. For more information call Metro Wines at (828) 575-9525.
