  • If you want to taste the best Zinfandel make an appointment at A Rafanelli. Small, private, friendly, family run winery. Great Zin. Added benefit is the chocolate they serve. No fancy tour, just great...  read more »

  • Mark was great for our tasting. He told us the neat history of the vineyard and wasn't stingy with the juice! Lol. Dry Creek Valley is a great way to see wine country and out of the whole valley A. Rafanelli was our favorite. Weekdays are easy appointments and tasting was free!
  • Well, let me just say if you want to enjoy an absolutely decadent Zin. The likes of which I would put up against any of the very best in the world. Including those from Turley and Antinori. This humble family winery is one you must not miss. With a wall full of Gold Metals for Cabs and Zins, and the warmest folks you will ever meet. You will remember your visit and seek out these wines with a passion whenever any of your wine friends mentions the Zin they could never forget, A. Rafineli.
  • The is our favorite winery to visit when we are in Sonoma County. Extraordinary wines. In fact, just had one at dinner in DC, an unusual chance at drinking an A. Rafanelli wine on the East Coast. Very rare. We have several bottles in the cellar for future drinking, but can't wait to get more!
  • The Zin is so yummy!
  • The essence of a small family winery with superb wines, in our opinion their Cabernet is one of the finest. The Merlot and the Zin are top notch as well. They sell only one bottle of each for cash, no credit cards. We found a restaurant in Santa Rosa, Le Gare, (near the Marriott Courtyard) that has Rafanelli Cab on their wine list and charges only a few bucks more than Rafanelli charges at the winery. Superb.
