“Crush!”

Attraction details

This is a small family owned and operated winery and an appointment is needed. We were able to see the grapes in the steel vat waiting to be "crushed" They have excellent Zin's and are very friendly.

The winery is unassuming and rustic, but it houses one of the best zinfandels in all Dry Creek. You have to make an appointment to sample and purchase their wines, but it's well worth it.

10 out 10! Staff accommodated our large party without reservations. Dave the owner likes KY bourbon and is a class act!

First and foremost top notch Zinfandel. This was our second time visiting and it didn't dissappoint. This is not a large commercial operation so don't expect anything fancy but the owners are super nice and gave us a tour.

we purchased the maximum allowed and will continue to enjoy the wine until our next visit

Rafanelli used to be one of our faves. In recent years the price/value ratio has diminished. They still make top flight cabs etc but better deals are to be found. plus major hassles to just get in to taste.
