About the Event
We’re delighted that Giuseppe Vajra of G. D. Vajra will be joining us online to take us through 7 of their gorgeous wines, including 2 incredible Barolo.
Vaira’s wines are characterised by pristine flavours and clearly defined perfumes. These characters are attributable to the position of their vineyards at about 400 metres above sea level in the village of Vergne in the commune of Barolo. G.D. Vajra was established in 1972 and named after Giuseppe’s grandfather, Giuseppe Domenico. The family have been gradually increasing the area under vine to 60 hectares, of which 10 are Nebbiolo for Barolo. Vajra’s wines adhere to old-style winemaking methods, such as long ageing in barrel for his Barolo, but combines this with new techniques, such as judicious use of oak, to produce superbly elegant wines. They have been a pioneering winery introducing organic techniques in Barolo since the 70s, the wines being certified organic from 2019 vintage.
