G.D. Vajra – Piedmont at its Elegant Best
With Special Guest Giuseppe Vajra
Friday, April 16, 2021, 5 pm Eastern
We’re thrilled to welcome Giuseppe Vajra whose family pioneered organic farming in Piemonte in 1971. This independent winery is widely admired for wines of finesse and complexity. The Vajra family has farmed Bricco delle Viole, the highest cru in Comune di Barolo, since the 17th century. High elevation vineyards are a unique factor to the Vajra wines, as is the family’s humility towards the nature. Giuseppe and his siblings Francesca and Isidoro have joined their parents Aldo and Milena Vajra in their uncompromising efforts.
We’ll taste Dragon Bianco, a creative white with Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Nascetta and Riesling, their Langhe Rosso blend of all red varietals, and the 2016 Albe Barolo. The Wine Advocate’s Monica Larner comments, “Albe is one of the most versatile, accessible and well-priced Baroli.” And, referring to all of their innovative wines, “G.D. Vajra is one of the most exciting estates to watch today. Congratulations on these gorgeous wines.” Giuseppe is the most engaging, charming person! He’ll chat with us for an hour, sharing stunning views of the vineyards
