      Free G.D. Vajra Wine Tasting

      Stop by the store this Saturday for a free G.D. Vajra wine tasting featuring three award winning wines from this prolific Piemonte producer.  And yes, we will be pouring their highly rated 2013 Barolo!

      G.D. Vajra was founded in 1972 by Aldo Vaira and his wife Milena. For generations, the family sold their fruit to local growers, but upon inheriting the estate, Aldo began producing wines under his own label.  Today, G.D. Vajra is still 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.  Join us to taste through a few of our favorites from their collection and save big on all of the wines.
