It is not open to the general public so call ahead for an appointment or to see if you can get in at all. Small wineries have very limited quantities of their wines. I believe they sell like 80% of their wine through their club....More

This winery is the ideal visit. Most important is the wine is fantastic. Next is the beautiful gardens, scenery and views. Add to this the simplicity of the experience. No fancy marble floors and pricey decor. Here the focus is on old traditions and family....More

The thing about Rafanelli is they only have two wines they will let you taste. Always the zinfandel and now the merlot since the cabernet has sold out. You can buy limited amounts at the tasting room or add your name to their wait list...More

The location is very picturesque and the staff is friendly but we were thought it was a bit odd that we needed a reservation and they only had two wines to try. We sampled and were quickly off to the next stop.

If you want to taste the best Zinfandel make an appointment at A Rafanelli. Small, private, friendly, family run winery. Great Zin. Added benefit is the chocolate they serve. No fancy tour, just great Zin tasting.
