About today’s guest producer:
Francesca Vaira and G.D. Vajra Wines represents one of the most important winemaking families of Barolo and refers to herself as the “front woman” of G.D. Vajra Barolo. The Vaira family— Francesca with siblings Giuseppe & Isidoro and parents Milena and Aldo refer to themselves as instruments of nature and have been cultivating native grapes from a farm owned by their family since the 1920s. The family patriarch Aldo Vaira is lovingly referred to as the “artisan of the land” and pioneered organic viticulture in the 1970s. He is a revered Barolo traditionalist and an exemplary viticulturalist who witnessed the early years of discovering some of Piedmont’s indigenous grapes including Arneis, Favorita and Nascetta. The Vaira Family is passionately dedicated to sustainable organic vineyard practices and champions the preservation of Italian native grapes. They are known to produce some of the most memorable classic Barolo wines. The prized ones are produced from their Bricco delle Viole crus, known to sit on pure Tortonian soil and situated at the highest elevation among historic vineyards that looks out the Alpine range.
