Four generations later they are still keeping with the tradition, growing premium grapes and producing world class wines. The family prides themselves on producing consistently exceptional wines year in and year out, specializing in some of the finest Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. A. Rafanelli Winery, Wines are not available in any retail outlets, you can only be purchased through the winery, either in person or by phone.

Family owned and run with small production vintages. Absolutely delicious! A beautiful winery as when finished tasting and purchasing their wine...take a stroll around the property to take in the beauty. Amazing gardens and landscape...truly incredible!

One of my all time favorite wineries! This was one of the places that got me to not only love wine, but understand it. Their Cabs and Zins are second to none with best of use of wood in any wine I know. A good family making great wine for a long time.

Had the Rafanelli Cab at a restaurant in Sonoma. So pleased with it, I made an appointment for a tasting. Purchased bottles of the three wines I tasted to ship home. Quaint tasting room and beautiful setting.

This is our favorite winery. Their family run business makes you feel like family too. The winery grounds are beautiful, the tasting room is friendly and inviting, and the wines...Wow. We have introduced this wine to many friends and the response is always "What is this, it's fantastic" . Love at first taste.... If you love just found heaven.
