  • This winery is the ideal visit. Most important is the wine is fantastic. Next is the beautiful gardens, scenery and views. Add to this the simplicity of the experience. No fancy marble floors and pric...  more »
  • The thing about Rafanelli is they only have two wines they will let you taste. Always the zinfandel and now the merlot since the cabernet has sold out. You can buy limited amounts at the tasting room ...  more »

  • This is our favorite winery. Their family run business makes you feel like family too. The winery grounds are beautiful, the tasting room is friendly and inviting, and the wines...Wow. We have introduced this wine to many friends and the response is always "What is this, it's fantastic" . Love at first taste.... If you love reds....you just found heaven.
  • By-appointment visits. We tasted 3 wines (zin, Merlot, cab) and got a tour of the cellars. It was fun to see the old hand methods still in use at the winery, which has a small production, with very limited availability. We picked up two of the cabs - the max allowed. There is a lovely walk out back, up into the vines and olive trees, and a nice picnic spot above the lake.
  • Wonderfully friendly and informative tour and tasting in a gorgeous spot- and truly excellent wine.
  • Great winery. I've been on their mailing list for nearly a decade - but I always love going up to see the winery, caves and staff. Their Zin is under-appreciated.
  • Very exclusive... we had a great experience overall. We got a taste of the '06 Zin thanks to Rick there, and it was mind-blowing. They have an amazing cave, and a lovely tour given by the owner himself! 👍
