Rick Raffaini, a wine consultant for over fifteen years and a fourth generation Californian, was born and raised here in the wine country. Rick has seen first hand the important role that the wine industry has played in the emergence of the local community.

Whether helping his Great Grandfather in the vineyards or pouring wine at hundreds of local events even as a kid, he has always been surrounded by people who have a passion for wine. Traveling throughout Europe and falling in love with Northern Italy, he came to realize the whole idea of gracious living and the important role that wine plays within this environment. Today, whether working in his own vineyard or volunteering at community events, Rick is consumed by the wine industry and has a true passion for helping others appreciate the wine country lifestyle.

He resides in Healdsburg with his wife Corrin and two young kids Annabella and Jake.

If he's not working on his ranch or searching for the next great wine, you will find him on the golf course, usually with a local vintner no less.
