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 or add your name to their wait list...More

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 Zin tasting.

Maybe this is not appropriate as I last visited about three years ago. That visit was very memorable. I live in Oregon and rarely get to Sonoma area. The wines we tasted were BIG and beautiful...both the cabs and the zin. I am fortunate to...More
