G.D. Vajra was founded in 1972 by Aldo Vaira and his wife Milena. For generations, the Vairas had sold their fruit to local growers but upon inheriting the estate, Aldo broke from family tradition and began producing wines under his own label. 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. The family owns almost 100 acres of vineyards in Vergne, the highest village in the Commune of Barolo and the wines are made from estate fruit that is triple sorted by hand. The Vaira's winemaking 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. For more than 40 years, this wonderfully humble and hard-working family has crafted soulful and honest expressions of Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, Moscato and Riesling. The elevated growing conditions here mean that grapes ripen later than in nearby vineyards, but possess an innate elegance as a result. The dry micro climate also results in relatively small yields helping to ensure grapes of excellent quality. This Nebbiolo is bright ruby red and delicate in color. Intense notes of violet and Fanée rose, accompanied by the freshness of small red fruits. Silky tannins cover the palate with personality and energy.
