Wine Your Way Around the World

Wine Your Way Around the World

It’s 2021, the most coveted and sought-after year to date. You’re itching to hop on a plane to just about anywhere. Travel has been limited the past year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take a trip through other means. Traveling through taste has always been a favorite pastime at Rafter Eleven … and we believe the best way to experience new places from the comfort of your home (or at your favorite community spot) is through wine. We invite you to join us on a first-class trip around the world. Grab your glass, sit back and relax. The trip has just begun.

’Tis The Season of Thoughtfulness

’Tis The Season of Thoughtfulness

The year is winding down, but not before major holidays like Christmas, Hanukkah and the New Year, which typically entail some sort of gifting, whether  it’s a present wrapped up under the tree or a gift basket for the host who opened their home to you on a chilly winter’s night. At Rafter Eleven we believe gift giving should come from the heart and bring people together, which is why our customized gift baskets make the ideal holiday gift for just about anyone on your list.

Over centuries, wine has evolved into an art.  From the terroir of the grapes, to the crushing of the varietals, to the magic of time … and finally, the first touch to the lips and taste to the mind and taste buds. 

At Rafter Eleven we have the honor of offering a selection of wine from all over the world. 

This Is Comfort

This Is Comfort

Our world is changing moment by moment and as we walk upon unchartered landscapes, we hold tight to what is dearest to us in life: family, friends, and faith. The heart, the center of every home is the kitchen.  It’s where we break bread, share good conversations, and, often, the place where we soothe our souls.

Valentine’s Day is a treasured experience at Rafter Eleven. On this day, we have the opportunity to witness the connection between individuals who truly care for and appreciate one other.

For the past two years, we have hosted a beautiful candlelit night full of music, wine, coffee, and delicious desserts. It’s the perfect atmosphere for love, friendship, and connection.

Christmas, Connections and Reflections…

Christmas, Connections and Reflections…

The Kitchen is the heart of the home, and Christmas is the reason we celebrate the season with food, family and friends. As we jump into the holidays, may we find many opportunities to share our blessings with others.

Holidays, Health, Happiness!

Holidays, Health, Happiness!

Typically, most of us jump into October anticipating the beginning of Fall. This seems to be the psychological nudge we gladly welcome to kick off the next two months of overindulging as we eat and celebrate.

What if we try something new this year?
