G.D. Vajra Wine Dinner

Wednesday, September 20th


It is with great pleasure we have a really notable visitor in the Italian wine world coming September 20th. Francesca Vajra is one the owner-winemakers for G.D. Vajra in Barolo and she will be with us hosting the dinner in person. She is incredibly knowledgeable and charming (and the odds of her English being better than your Italian are pretty good!)

We visited the winery in January and found the quality across the range better than ever. We’ve been buying and sharing their wines from 2001. Their quality and dedication shows in every detail of every wine and 2013 is an A+ vintage. Perhaps superior to 2010 – maybe most comparable to 1996 or 1982. Please join us for…
