The estate of G.D. Vajra, situated in Vergne the highest village in the Commune of Barolo, was
established in 1972 by Giuseppe Domenico. Milena and Aldo Vaira are the current owners.
Both have worked the vineyards since the early 1970s. Vajra currently owns 40 sustainably
farmed hectares in such strategic spots as Bricco delle Viole, Fossati, La Volta, Coste di Vergne.
The vineyards are planted with Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera at elevations between 350-400
meters, which results in distinctive and aromatic wines. Their philosophy remains faithful to the
traditional wines of Piedmont. "I try to make wines that give people joy. In the past wine was a
food, it was necessary for sustenance. Today that is not the case; we choose to drink for
pleasure. I want to make wines that bring people happiness.” ~ Aldo Vajra
