Join us for a special wine dinner featuring G.D. Vajra. Together with Francesca Vajra we will embark on a journey to explore the wine of Piedmont - from Dolcetto to Barolo - alongside a five-course tasting menu from Michelin-starred Chef Nicholas Stefanelli.
G.D. Vajra is located in Vergne, the highest village in the Commune of Barolo, with vineyards planted with Nebbiolo at heights of 350-400 meters above sea level, as well as with Dolcetto and Barbera. This high altitude, combined with the impact from Piedmont’s continental climate, means the grapes mature much slower than other areas and crus, with the result that its Barolos have always been recognized as quite distinctive: wines with youthfully ample aromas, showing prominent but judicious acidity, generous fruit always lively and crisp, whose primary stylistic signature is their aromatic elegance.
Milena and Aldo Vaira are among the dedicated and passionate winemakers who consign the utmost respect for their land while granting their wine with an entirely unique signature portraying elegance and character due to rigorous and consistent effort. Since 1970, they gradually expend the family vineyard to 40 hectares from which 10 hectares are planted of Nebbiolo for the production of Barolos. Today, they can rely on the help of Giuseppe and Isidoro their two sons to make sure that the authenticity and the high quality of their wines are well maintained for further years to come.
