This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Raffaldini Vineyards & Winery, 450 Groce Rd, Ronda, NC 28670-9134

This is perhaps one of the Carolina's prettiest vineyards, Raffaldini. Raffaldini makes excellent Italian wines and have been doing so for a couple decades. We will enjoy their Bella Misto that goes divinely with meatballs in a red wine sauce (plus bread to sop up the goodness).

Stop At: Piccione Vineyards, 2364 Cedar Forest Rd, Ronda, NC 28670-9107

Known for their Italian style wines, this cute on a hill vineyard has one bottle that particularity stands out for us, their amazing Provence style rosé made from Montepulciano grapes. We are pairing this with creamy goat cheese & crackers.
