G. D. Vajra
Winery G. D. Vajra was founded by Aldo Vajra in 1972. The initials G. D. referring to Giuseppe Domenico, the grandfather from whom he inherited the vineyards in the highest village of Barolo, Vergne. With his wife Milena he started the Winery with the aim to produce wines under their own label. The wines are produced exclusively from its own grapes. Besides Nebbiolo they grow Barbera, Dolcetto, Freisa and a quirky Riesling.
There is no vineyard, no terroir, without the land. To love it is simple, but not easy. The land is generous and alive. It is beautiful. It needs understanding and time. It takes your breath away with its colors and many wonders. The land asks for absolute dedication. It asks to be loved for better or worse, in abundance and scarcity. The land is almost more than a house. It's part of our life and asks to be guarded with the same tenderness that we have for our loved ones. And the amazing thing is that, despite all the difficulties, to love it does not need any effort.
