My Visit to the Fabulous A Rafanelli Winery

I have been fortunate to visit the breathtaking A Rafanelli Winery a few times over the years. This is a must-visit destination in the Healdsburg area for their amazing wines and hospitality. Discover more about My Visit to the Fabulous A Rafanelli Winery below.

The Team at A Rafanelli Winery

The team at this winery is what makes it so special. This family-owned winery is unique because of its lasting tradition in the Dry Creek Valley. They don’t necessarily put their attention towards the quantity but rather the quality of their wines. A Rafanelli specializes in some of the finest Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. If their name rings a bell that’s because they are probably one of the most ADORED Wineries in Sonoma County. So much so that you must visit if you haven’t had the chance to yet….
