By now I have run out of superlatives for Vajra. Suffice it to say these are some of the finest, artisan wines being made in Piedmont today. ANTONIO GALLONI
What’s not to love about Piemonte? The breathtaking scenery, the incredible food, friendly people and most importantly the home of the greatest wines in Italy. What’s more we are living in the greatest epoch in this region’s storied history. At no time before have the wines delivered so much pleasure, value and excitement.
In light of Prince Wine Store’s recent events for Festa del Barolo, the team is hosting a very special one-night-only event with G.D. Vajra featuring the winemaker himself, Giuseppe Vaira.
G.D. Vajra is undoubtedly one of Piedmont’s jewels, standing out for the brilliance with which it fuses tradition with progressive ideas and a sense of adventure. This family strives to inspire in people the same passion for this land and its wines that runs in their veins. Giuseppe Vaira is the second-generation face of the estate, which he runs alongside brother Isidoro and sister Francesca, and under the fond gaze of parents, Aldo and Milena. With coveted holdings in their home commune of Barolo as well as Novello, Sinio and Serralunga. G.D. Vajra excels with the Piedmont staples: Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo, Moscato and the very rare Freisa. Meanwhile a fabulous Riesling, bunchy nouveau-style Nebb and screwcapped Langhe Rosso show their creative flair, while cru Barolo from the likes of Bricco delle Viole, Ravera, Cerretta and Baudana are some of the finest examples you’ll find from this region’s precious terroir.
Please join Prince Wine Store Sydney for an exclusive dinner at Otto Ristorante by the wharf in Woolloomooloo with Giuseppe Vaira himself for an evening of good wine, food and antics.
Hosted by Prince Wine Store, wines by G.D. Vajra, matched with a four-course Italian menu tailored by Otto Ristorante.
