The Vajra story is something quite magical. The family is not from noble descendants but is a family of hard-working, passionate, caring people. Their focus is on building something for their children, caring about the community, and cementing the stories of the regions’ past.

In the 2019 vintage, they kept 20% of the Nebbiolo from the harvest for this bottle. The wine undergoes partial carbonic maceration, the most important aspect of this wine. It’s bottled with a natural CO2 giving the wine a slight fizz. Drink chilled!

The story of Claré J.C. has unexpected roots from a quote made by Thomas Jefferson. While he was ambassador to France in the 1780s, he spent time in northern Italy. In regards to Nebbiolo, he said, “dry as a claret, sweet and lingering as a Madeira and brisk as a Champagne.” Claret refers to the name for Bordeaux at the time, but the name couldn’t be used due to Bordeaux’s trademark. The style Jefferson would have tried was Chiaretto, a light red from Lake Guarda; because Chiaretto is now protected as an appellation , the wine couldn’t take this name either. In the end, the wine was named Claré as a nod to the style it was named for. The ‘J’ refers to Jefferson and the ‘C’ refers to G.B. Croce—a winemaker from the 17th century who wrote a book outlining winemaking techniques in Piedmont. As you can see, this bottle takes inspiration from the past; it is focused on the winemaking technique versus terroir, a different yet successful interpretation from the Vajra family.
