We visited 18 wineries on our trip, and this was our favorite one. The setting was magical, the people were so friendly, and their dog welcomes everyone!

Every wine that Rafanelli creates is excellent. Arrange for a special wine tasting and you will NOT be disappointed. Stephanie makes stellar Cabernet and Zinfandel. Be sure to try the Merlot, you will not be disappointed. Keep up the great work - Rafanelli wine rocks!!!

We made the reservation, and hated this winery. They didn't inform us of anything, didn't talk about the wine, didn't really care we were there. We hit many a winery... this will NEVER make my list again.

Their Zinfandel is our favorite and is it ever smooth. Do not miss this winery! The site is just what a winery should be. They are so accommodating and gracious. The zin is the best.

We were given a personal tour (unplanned) by Dave Rafanelli through the caves. What a great experience!

Specializing in delicious tasing merlot, zin and cab this small family owned winery is a beautiful stop in the Dry Creek Valley. Staff are friendly and knowledgable - a world apart from the crowded commercial venues.

Very small winery with fantastic wine. They only serve cabs and zins so if you are a white wine drinker you can skip this one. Last time we went they needed reservations so call first.
