Ep. 152 Monty Waldin interviews Isidoro Vajra (G. D. Vajra)
In this episode Monty Waldin interviews Isidoro Vajra at the G. D. Vajra winery in Barolo, in the heart of the Langhe hills in Piedmont. Isidoro talks about the history of the family and about one of their famous vineyard sites for Nebbiolo grapes called “Bricco delle Viole” (literally the summit of pansies). The winery also produces Barbera as well as local native grape Nascetta. The winery is also re-planting a long forgotten indigenous grape the “Baratuciat.” Tune in to discover also Isidoro’s passion for the work in the vineyard and a lake oasis in the middle of the winery grounds where wild ducks stop by!
