Raffy

Our first visit to Bodega Raffy, in November 2012, was pre-empted by one of those simple, delicious, large lunches in Mendoza from whence one emerges having eaten half a herd of grass-fed cattle, or at least feeling that way. We clambered our way through the various courses in the most unassuming of local village restaurants, our  eating pleasures only punctuated by the most amazing range of wines from this very small, very new producer, owned by the Raffy family of French origin - father Jean-Louis and sons Guillaume and Maximilien, none of whom were actually present that day.

Onward to the winery, which without our fellow diners we would surely have driven past because, like the restaurant, its purpose is all function without frills; a small adobe building baking in the Mendoza sun, blissfully cool inside. No room to swing the proverbial cat but just enough to squeeze in between rows of high-stacked posh French barrels, all full of fantastic Malbec, many of which we tasted with a gleeful eye on the future.

Raffy has shot to relative stardom with its wines in a very short space of time, winning a series of awards around the world, including a regional trophy for Best Argentine Malbec over £10 at DWWA 2012. Winemaker Marcelo Pelleriti is no stranger to accolades either, having received 100 Parker Points for his Château La Violette 2010 and 99 points from the same for his Château Le Gay 2010 - both Pomerol wines.

We think El Viajero Malbec, which is an exclusive collaboration between Raffy and Las Bodegas, ranks amongst the country's very best; a celebration of how great things can emerge from humble surroundings.

Testimonials

“Got my wine today, thanks very much for the great wine, quick email responses and friendly attitude. Very impressed overall and I hope to return and buy more from you in the future!”
Ollie, Hungerford


“Hi there, I just wanted to leave some feedback. After someone, who shall remain nameless, downed our bottle of La Poderosa (which we were saving for our anniversary), my fiance and I embarked on a mission to try and find the elusive 2006 reserve. No luck with anyone on the high street, not even the big wine warehouses. Then I came across your site. I couldn't believe my luck when I saw you had it in stock. The delivery was super quick and the bottle is now stored away safely until November the 18th. Thank you for a fabulous service!”
Stephanie, London

“At last, a company that understands wine from Argentina, how good it is and why it should have its own special place online. Well done.”
David, East Kilbride


“It’s nice to find a company that’s as enthusiastic about wine as I am.”

“I didn’t know there was so much choice available from Argentina. I’ll still buy wines from other countries but this is now my first port of call for Argentina.”
