Wines of Aldo Vajra and family are long time favorites of the Hart & Cru. They make a plethora of well-known favorites like their playful Moscato D’Asti, the pleasurable Albe Barolo, and crowd-pleasing Langhe Rosso. What many may not know is that several moons ago, Aldo took it upon himself to cultivate the first Riesling of Piedmonte in the high elevation hillsides of Fossati and Bricco Bertone. Says Francesca Vajra, “my father has been the pioneer of Riesling in Piedmont. An intuition born in the late 1970s and put into effect in 1985. The story of Riesling narrates his passion and curiosity very well: extremely respectful of our land but open to the world. For my brothers and I it has been the opportunity to fall in love with Riesling and be surprised by our father being in love with his work." This loving quote from daughter Francesca displays the modesty and drive of the family, and the strength they have by supporting one another.
