Raphael is one of the few wine estates in the United States that harvest entirely by hand. Work carries on until the carefully chosen moment-when the harvest starts and the grapes are gathered by hand in the traditional and time-honored way. Nothing but the best fruit makes it into our wine.
Definitely one of the better vineyards on the north fork. They have a great selection of wines but also a lovely array of cheese boards and small bites. The vineyard itself is stunningly beautiful. Sit under the pergola or on the patio for a gorgeous view to accompany your wine and cheese. The grounds are gorgeous and the wine and food delicious. Staff could stand to be more knowledge and friendly, but overall a great place to be.
Their tasting menu offers wine flights ranging from $10-$20 per flight. Enjoy your wine while you explore our tasting room and beautiful outdoor patio.
Don’t forget to check out their wide variety of gourmet snacks and the best stocked gift shop on the North Fork.
Raphael is uniquely qualified to handle your wedding, special event or private party. Within our spacious accommodations all events can take place under one roof unaffected by the weather. Their full service special events coordinators will help you plan all aspects of your affair including music, flowers, lodging and menu choices.
Tours of their vineyard and production facility will take you through the sprawling acres of vines, through our tank room and into our barrel cellar. Tours include a tasting of four wines and will last approximately forty minutes.
