The Vajra family has been making wine in the Barolo region for over 2 centuries, it was in 1927 that Aldo Vajra founded the G.D. Vajra winery, naming it after his father. The family estate has 4 vineyards located in Coste de Vergne, Fossati, La Volta and Bricco delle Viole, where the 65 year old vines were planted by Aldo’s grandfather. They are renowned for their elegant, high quality Barolo wines, and apply the same passion and attention to their Dolcettos. All of the vineyards are farmed organically, and in the winery Aldo [along with his son Giuseppe] tailors ageing and fermentation “based on the vintage and what the grapes that year deliver”. The 2011 Dolcetto d’Alba was fermented and aged in stainless steel then rested for a brief time in neutral Slovenian casks.
