The Gaja winery was founded in 1859 in Barbaresco, in the heart of the Langhe and it has always been recognised as one of the name associated to the Barbaresco production. From the founder Giovanni up to Angelo Gaja, this family has been able to dominate in the international wine market thanks to a fundamental recipe: the pursuit of quality.
Produced using pure Nebbiolo grapes, which are carefully selected by the Gaja’s team during the hand harvest. After the winemaking, the grapes are subject to a double aging, which is fundamental to develop completely the features of this wine.
