About

G.D. Vajra, a renowned producer of hand-crafted, artisanal wines that Antonio Galloni himself has called "artisan wines of the very highest level". This winery is a true family affair, run by the second generation of Vairas, with Aldo and Milena keeping a watchful eye over things. He went against the grain and returned to his ancestors' land in the 1970s, when everyone else was fleeing to the cities. 

But that's the spirit of G.D. Vajra, tradition with an adaptive streak. And they're not afraid to mix things up, even the label is a nod to their roots, with the rogue 'j' reflecting the pre-1920s mis-spelt label of the family name.

Through the years, the Vajra family has acquired prized vineyards in Barolo, Novello, Sinio, and Serralunga - the latter being home to their Luigi Baudana label and some truly stupendous wines.

But it's not just about the labels. They excel in all the Piedmont staples: Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo, Moscato, and even the rare Freisa. Now, you might be thinking, "Riesling? From Piedmont? That can't be right." But this Riesling is far better than it has any right to be. The Vaira family knows how to work their magic with this grape, producing a wine that is delicate yet full of character, with just the right amount of acidity to make your taste buds sing.

But don't take our word for it. Get yourself a bottle of G.D. Vajra Riesling and see for yourself what all the fuss is about. And while you're at it, why not try their other Piedmont staples - Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo, Moscato, and the rare Freisa - and see why this family-run winery is making waves in the world of hand-crafted, artisanal wines.

 

Tasting Note

The 2020 Riesling Petracine is fresh, vibrant and full of energy. Orchard fruit, mint, lime, crushed rocks and white flowers are all very nicely delineated. Weightless and bright, the Riesling feels especially taut in 2020. It’s a style that is hugely appealing. 

92 points – Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media November 2021.
