History

The Gaja winery is steeped in history, dating back to 1859, when it was founded by Giovanni Gaja. The family started by producing wine for their tavern and then went on to acquire various pieces of land until they began producing wines in Barbaresco, Italy.

Fast forward to 1961 and Giovanni Gaja's great grandson, Angelo Gaja, starts his career with the company. Building upon the success of the flagship Barbaresco (Wine Spectator named the 1985 Barbarescos "the finest wines ever made in Italy"), Angelo Gaja's spirited and stylish flare to the production and marketing has generated reputable success amongst both critics and consumers in other varieties of wines, including Chardonnays and Cabernet Sauvignons.

Interesting Facts

The winery started with a humble five acres and over the years, has acquired multiple vineyards in the Piedmont, Montalcino and Bolgheri regions of Tuscany, Italy and produces a total of 18 different wines. Celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2009, the Gaja winery is considered to be one of the top wine producers in Italy, largely due to the vision and passion of the 5th-generation owner, Angelo Gaja. His desire to produce the finest quality wines, an ambitious task, has led to pushing the boundaries of vinification practices, most notably with regards to the Nebbiolo and the use of barrique in order to achieve a softening of the tannins and fully expressions of the fruit. Revolutionary practices in combination with a dynamic personal vision, Gaja is the perfect example of a winery who has continued to evolve beyond its staple of award-winning Barbaresco, to become a comprehensive producer of top quality wines.
