The Renaissance Room will accommodate a variety of guests from a simple luncheon to a formal banquet. Its antique finishes are complemented by polished cherry and rich mahogany. Textured linens are accented with the finest silver, crystal and china.
Both rooms provide a beautiful view of the vineyards throughout the seasons. Within their spacious accommodations all events can take place under one roof unaffected by the weather. Raphael Vineyard full service special events coordinators will help you plan all aspects of your affair including music, flowers, lodging and menu choices.
Of course, no great event would be complete without a world-class wine. Raphael offers several distinctive choices including Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc. Special tastings of their wines offered by a knowledgeable staff can be arranged as a part of your event. They provide you with an unforgettable experience in an unsurpassed setting in the wine country of the North Fork of Long Island.
Raphael was born from the vision of the owner John Petrocelli,
who named the winery in honor of his father
and continues a centuries old family tradition of wine making.
The winemaking philosophy is based on an understanding of the cycle of nature, the climate and soil, the ripeness of the grapes and the success of time-honored techniques. Utilizing gravity flow and a natural winemaking philosophy, Raphael wines are produced sustainably, utilizing controlled fermentation with little fining and filtration resulting in wines that purely express our local terroir. Our mission is to produce ripe, fruit-driven wines that exhibit a marriage of depth, finesse, elegance, and balance – the flavors of the North Fork – provided first by the terroir and secondly, by the dedicated, impassioned attention of our winemaking team.
The winery was designed by John Petrocelli who was inspired by the Italian monasteries of his ancestral home. Our production facility blends classic Mediterranean architecture with modern winemaking equipment. By building the winery 12 feet underground we are not only able to make our wines using a gentle gravity-flow method, but were able to construct a very energy efficient building using the earth’s natural 55F temperature to cool the winery in the summer and warm it in the winter.
Throughout the seasons, the devoted vineyard staff carries out the rigorous work of caring for the vines. Our vineyard manager Stephen Mudd, is dedicated to sustainable agriculture, safeguarding the quality of the wine and raising it to its utmost perfection. Stephen brings over 30 years of experience in managing vineyards and is considered one of the pioneers of Long Island grape growing. Most of the work is done by hand, year-round; from pruning to leaf pulling. The ancient practice of fruit thinning is carried out during the summer and fall. Approximately half of our crop is sacrificed every year to insure that the remaining fruit will reach the ultimate peak of ripeness. 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.

Family is at the core of everything I do here at Roberto Falck Photography.
My goal is to create images that make your heart skip a beat every time you pass them in your home.

I want to welcome YOU to my world. Look around and hit that "Let's Chat" button when you are ready to collaborate in creating some beautiful Art with your loved ones.
A Wedding Survival Kit is a must for your big day. As much as we would love to believe that every wedding will go exactly as planned, that is simply not reality!
