We got a really good tour and talked to the whole family before and during the wine tasting. They are very hospitable, professional and it was a very educational aa really nice experience and they did not push for us to buy their fantastic wines 🍷

Too big and too commercial to be nice
Oct 2019 • Couples
Having already visited a couple of small, family-owned wineries in Piemonte, the visit to GD Vajra was quite a disappointment. The tour was short and we didn't manage to learn anything besides the basic stuff that we already knew. It's perhaps ok if you know nothing about the production of Barolos, however if you pay 20 EUR per person for the visit you expect rather a detailed tour. Also, for that price we would expect cheeses and salamis as part of the tasting but we got just grissinis. Looks like this place has become the victim of its own popularity.

Regarding the wines, I found GD Veira's Barolos more "mainstream" comparing to what other wineries in the area offer, hence these wines were not amongst my favorites.

Very disapointed
Jul 2019 • Friends
We went there six people expecting to buy quite a lot for the wine cellar. Allas. What a bad surprise. We know for a fact that the wines are excellent so this is purely a rating of the tasting visit experience. First of all the price. 20 euro COULD be ok for a tasting. But not for this particular one. There nearly wasn't enough in the glasses to smell og taste anything maybe 1,5 cl) and there was a strict policy to only taste 4 wines. That makes 5 euros pr glass and between 20 and 40 serving pr bottle. We didn't really get any information about the wine either, no help with chosing the 4 wimes tasting or anything.
No need to mention we didn't buy anything and went on to another winery who treat customers like customers should be treated.

Dear Jonas we are incredibly sorry to hear about your poor experience. It was an extraordinarily frantic week at the winery and we simply couldn't provide the level of attention and care you deserve. We hope you will accord us another chance to prove our hospitality can keep up to the efforts we put in our vineyards and for our wines. Sincerely, Giuseppe

Exellent

We were welcomed by a nice and knowledgeable guide. A short trip down in the wine cellar and then we got to test 4 different wines. You can also buy wine there. We missed some more information about in the different vineyards, the soil, the sun conditions and also a walk around the different vineyards, but a visit that can be recommended.

Excellent Wine Tasting
Apr 2019 • Couples
The wine tasting here is very educational and quite worthwhile. There is a charge of I believe 20 Euros and we tasted five wines. Each one we discussed, and we were told of the history of the region. There is also a tour of the winery for an additional fee.

A highlight of our trip to Italy!
Aug 2018
Our visit to G.D. Vajra took place just over 1 week ago where we took part in a tour and tasting with Francesca Vajra herself. G.D. Vajra was recommended to us by one of the sommeliers from the world famous Michelin starred restaurant “Del Posto”. After the sommelier raved about G.D. Vajra extensively we knew we had to pay them a visit.

Francesca provided us with highly personalized tour and tasting and explained everything with such great detail and passion. This is not your typical visit to a winery by any means. Francesca has an unbelievable amount of passion for the wines and explained in detail the intricacies behind Barollo wine and what goes into the process. Francesca could not have been a more gracious host and we cant thank her enough for that.

The winery itself is beautiful visually and will soon be even more beautiful as they are undergoing some renovations. The wine itself could not be better. Some of the best Barolo wine on the market, and dont forget the other wines that they produce including an amazing Barolo Chinato! All of the wines were perfection and that is why they are rated so highly by nearly every major wine critic and publication.

Francesca we thank you again for the amazing experience and for being not only one of our highlights visiting Barolo but for being a highlight of our entire trip to Italy and treating us like family.

Grazie mille!!!

You must try Barolo's the first and only Riesling. Available only here.
Jul 2018 • Couples
We booked the tasting online, showed up one hour early and felt very welcommed immediately. The Winery is under expansion, but still was very interesting to go around. Staff was so nice and wines were excellent.

And the Riesling, you got to try it. It's so crazy.

Charming staff and spectacular wines
Sep 2017
This winery is well worth a visit. The staff is charming, and their command of English is good. They have the normal varieties, but they also experiment with newer grapes for the area, like Risling, and a red variety that I have never tasted before. I apologize for not recalling its name. But I do not hesitate to recommend the wines of Vajra and a tour.

Tasty wines, friendly staff, disappointing process
Sep 2017 • Friends
First, its EUR 10 for tasting which was clearly communicated in advance. However, it was the first winery who really charged despite purchasing a box of wines. For this, and for showing a very small sample, no water etc we found the EUR10 unjustified. So some of us didnt order at all (we spent EUR 2000 in two wineries before).

Wines were good. Few Barolos though and excluding one that was promised when we booked as not available yet.

Staff was very friendly, speaking also English and even German.

A pity as the wines are definitely above average.
