“Fantastic wines!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2011

A Rafanelli is s small family owned winery that makes fantastic Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. Their wine is only sold at the winery and you must make an appt. to taste/buy but it is well worth the effort.

“My favorite Zin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2011

Absolutely love this winery and love their Zin! We waited about 2 years to make the mailing list and have come every year to buy a case of Zin. We've also bought the Cab and the Merlot. Just divine.
Love the winery, the family, the dogs, etc. Such a beautiful place and a beautiful wine!

“A throwbackk-wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2011

This is a first-class, family-run place which harkens back to the old days in the Healdsburg area. Tasting is with a family member in the barrel room; gracious and knowledgeable. Their Zins are not overpowering and the reserve Cab is spectacular. Takes a few years to get on the mailibng list and be able to purchase the wines--worth the wait.

“great wine, great staff, great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2011

As always, our visit to Rafanelli Winery was great. The wines this year are some of the best in 10-15 years of going to this winery. The Cab this year is spectacular. Each year one of their wines is better than the others. This year it is the Cab. See you again next year. Stacy, Shelly, and Dave are wonderful.

“Just like Great Family.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2010

The Rafanelli's have taken time out of harvest to show us around. I have visited the winery 10 times over 20 years and have always felt like I was coming home after being away too long. Great wines and great people.
