Giuseppe Vaira of G.D. Vajra at Elvino Thursday Night Tasting


We have the pleasure of welcoming back to Elvino Giuseppe Vajra, scion of the famous G.D. Vajra winery of Piemonte, Italy

From Justin Gallen of Rinascimento Wine Company: The estate of GD Vajra (named for its current operator Aldo Vajra's grandfather, Giuseppe Domenico), is situated in Vergne, the highest village in the Commune of Barolo. Its vineyards are planted with Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera at heights of 350-400 meters, which results in distinctive and aromatic wines. The Vajra family is a group of dedicated, passionate winegrowers, who are also grounded and sensitive to the human role in winemaking. Their philosophy remains faithful to the traditional and authentic wines of Piemonte, and in essence they regard themselves as the instruments that enable nature and the environment full self-expression through their wines.
