G.D. Vajra 1/2 bottles make great stocking stuffers . . .

Moscato d'Asti is the essence of summer in a glass. With aromas of peaches, apple, apricot, and pineapple and flavors to match, this wine, if you can call it a wine, is the perfect antidote for the winter blues.

Harvested the first week of September, this is usually the first wine out of the gate to consumers providing some quick cash so that the other wines that will be in barrel for many months to come have a safe home. But don't let it fool you. A good Moscato can last for years, especially in those vintages with high acidity.

The Vajra Moscato is a little hidden gem of a wine. Only a few hundred cases are made and only recently has it been offered here in the states.

I have 1/2 bottles and full bottles for sale of the 2009, but I would go for the 1/2 bottles as they will fit nicely in the stocking.

Cheers.

Lunch with Francesca Vaira at Terroni DTLA . . . best lunch ever!
