Barolo Tasting at Tofino Wines - Tuesday November 3rd

Barolo Tasting November 3rd6-8 PM

TOFINO WINES Tuesday Tasting 15:3

On Tuesday, November 3rd, Giuseppe Vajra will pour a selection of 8 wines from his family's estate G.D.Vajra, including outstanding Barolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, Moscato d'Asti and several surprise library selections. 

G.D.Vajra remains a favorite among wine buyers (including everyone atTOFINO WINES!) and industry insiders for producing wines of incredible finesse and elegance. In fact, Giuseppe and his father Aldo consider themselves "clean traditionalists," working to highlight each vintage's unique characteristics. Aldo began thewinery in 1972, producing small quantities of Piemontese wines from vineyards planted by his father in 1947. The fruit was sold to other producers until Aldo bottled his first vintage in 1978. Today, the family has more than 150 acres of vines spread throughout the region.

Wines will be tasted! (until sample bottles run out.) 

$20 Tasting Fee, applicable to the purchase of two or more Vajra bottles the night of the tasting.

Interest in this tasting is extremely high, and space is limited. Tasting will begin at promptly at 6 PM.
