About the Event
Join us for a tasting of G.D. Vajra's Piemontese wines! If you’re familiar with the great reds of Piemonte, then you’re familiar with the transcendentally great wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. But the Piedmont of Italy is not limited to ultra-powerful Nebbiolo. It has SO much more to offer, and one of the best producers embodying that diversity is GD Vajra. Aldo Vaira’s wines are characterised by pristine flavours and clearly defined perfumes. A traditionalist, Aldo adheres to old-style winemaking methods, such as long ageing in barrel for his Barolo, but combines this with new techniques, such as a judicious use of oak, to produce superbly elegant wines. This elegance, aligned with a vibrancy and depth derived from exemplary viticulture, gives wines of wonderful varietal character.
