G.D. Vajra was founded in 1972 by husband and wife Aldo and Milena Vaira. When Aldo inherited almost 100 acres of vineyards in Vergne the highest village in the Commune of Barolo he broke from family tradition and began producing wines under his own label. The wines are made from 100% estate fruit that is triple sorted by hand. For more than 40 years, this wonderfully humble and hard-working couple have crafted soulful and honest expressions of Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, Moscato and Riesling. G.D. Vajra is entirely a family affair. The winery was named after Aldo’s father, Giuseppe Domenico, and Aldo and Milena work with their daughter Francesca and sons, Giuseppe and Isidoro. Their guiding philosophy is simple - they are not modern, they are not traditional. They practice sustainable farming and craft sensitive, transparent wines of place by patiently allowing the fruit to dictate its own evolution. “I try to make wines that give people joy. In the past, wine was food, it was necessary for sustenance. Today that is not the case; we choose to drink for pleasure. I want to make wines that bring people happiness. ~ Aldo Vajra

Tasting notes
A structured, full-bodied red that offers notes of ripe red berries, tobacco, roses, and hints of white pepper and herbs. Resonant notes of black fruits and spices give plenty of richness, grip and balance to this wonderfully pure expression of the varietal.

Technical notes
A single-vineyard wine made from grapes grown in the San Ponzio parcel in Barolo. The 35+ year old vines were planted on clay-rich soils at 1,280-1,345 feet. The destemmed fruit was macerated for approximately 25 days and aged for 12-18 months, first in Slavonian oak casks and then in French barriques.
