2013 Raffaldini Italian Festival

happy sunday! I hope you’re having a good weekend. Yesterday was the Raffaldini Italian Festival. It’s the fourth one Debbie and I have gone to; we were discussing how our lives have changed since we started going and wondering where we would be in life at the 2014 festival. (Here’s the 2012 post!)

This year it was PACKED. We grabbed some food (meatballs!), did our tasting and then bought a bottle and retreated up the hill away from the crowd.

We enjoyed the views, the wine and good conversation.

We made our way back up to the beautiful tasting room for some good views before heading home. The crowds has dissipated at this point – it was jam packed when we first got there.

It was another great year!

    Looks so fun! It’s great to see such a crowd – love seeing the growth of our local NC vineyards. I love the glasses they used, too.
