“Best Zin in California”

A. Rafanelli Winery
Ranked #48 of 170 things to do in Healdsburg
Attraction details
Reviewed 5 March 2012

The best Zinfandel in California. No restaurant, no gimmicks. A small, long established family owned winery that makes excellent wine. Supplies are limited, unfortunately.

You have to make a reservation to go to A. Raf. but it's a must if you are a Zin lover. They also make a Cab. and a Merlot, but we think the Zin is outstanding.
If you are lucky you might get to talk to David Rafanelli, the father of Shelly the wine maker. He's interesting and can be funny.
They don't have a wine club, but you can get on their "wine list" by writing a letter to be included, and then waiting. If you are not on their list you can only buy one bottle per person. You will love that one bottle.

The wine was great as were the people. The views were spectacular and we would have loved to stay all day, but we had other commitments.
