We made our fifth visit to Raffaldini Vineyards and Winery earlier this month and have agreed that they just get better and better with each visit. The grounds, the vineyard, the gorgeous villa tasting room, and the amazing wines combine to make Raffaldini one of the premier wineries in North Carolina. They are definitely our favorite!
We visited Virginia again this summer and spent three days visiting Barboursville: staying and relaxing at the 1804 Inn, tasting reserve wines in the Library at the tasting room, dining at the Palladio Restaurant, exploring the Octagon room, the grapes and the grounds around the vineyard, and the ruins of the Governors mansion, and finally buying wine in the gift shop before leaving. It was fabulous! Hope you enjoy a few of our photos.
