The Gaja brand was founded in 1859 by Giovanni Gaia, the great-grandfather of the current owner Angelo Gaja, and for 5 generations, belongs to the Gaia family. To date, Gaja Winery has vineyards with a total area of 250 hectares, located in the province of Tuscany and Piedmont. Angelo Gaja began his work in the family business in 1961, after completing his training at the Enological Institute of Alba and the University of Montpellier (he later received a degree in economics from the University of Turin).
Angelo repeatedly visited France and was inspired by the modern and traditional techniques of French winemakers who began to use the experience gained in the production of their own wines. His magnetism, charm and poetic reflections on the nature of wine Angelo Gaja make one of the most respected and beloved figures in the wine industry in Italy. In 2011, Wine Spectator magazine Angelo Gaja named one of the best wine producers in the history of Piedmont and Tuscany.
