"In wine there is truth” This saying is in Latin and not in Italian, but it rightfully enters our collection for at least two reasons: the first is that in Italy, even today, it’s very common in everyday language. This shows once again how wine has always been an important element of the Italian culture, deeply rooted in the history of people and their land.

Vergne, Barolo Italy
The GD Vajra estate is found in Vergne, the highest village of Barolo in north-west Italy, where the vineyards sit at an altitude of up to 400 metres. The estate is named after Giuseppe Domenico Vajra, who founded the estate in 1972, using vineyards that had been in the family since the 1920s, but which were only economically viable to farm once the Italian DOC system was introduced in the 1960s and Barolo's worldwide popularity started to spike
The Mandrarossa wines are created from the project of land mapping, selection of the vineyards and cultivars that express the finest aspects of the Menfi and Terre Sicane territory. This strip of land, on the south-western coast of Sicily, has the ideal microclimatic conditions for viticulture: intense sunlight, sea breezes, mild temperatures, multiple elevations and exposures to different types of soils, among which the limestone ones with the highest potential.
