The A. Rafanelli Winery was founded in the early 1900's and this unique winery is still family owned and operated. The founder, Alberto Rafanelli, was an Italian immigrant who settled in the Healdsburg, California area and started making wine.
In the 1950's the winery was moved to the Dry Creek Valley and by 1970 had established the current label. This winery specializes in Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot producing only 11,000 cases annually. The philosophy is quality over quantity.
Tasting and purchases are by appointment only. Wines are only available through direct purchase or through selected fine restaurants. -
