Four generations have succeeded each other in the production of wine since Giovanni Gaja founded his winery in the Barbaresco district. Giovanni's son Angelo represented the second generation. He was ambitious and possessed acute powers of observation. He married Clotilde Rey in 1905. It was she who guided his entrepreneurial decisions towards total dedication to quality, without compromise. Giovanni Gaja, son of Clotilde and Angelo who died in 2002, made Barbaresco his flagship wine, thereby acquiring a leading position in the Italian market.
The enterprise is currently managed by Angelo, great-grandson of the first Giovanni Gaja, who joined the company in 1961. Since then, Angelo has continued in the wake of his father and grandfather. He has endeavoured to enhance the awareness and enjoyment of Barbaresco by acting as proprietor-producer, i.e. by making wine from the produce of his own vineyards without purchasing grapes/wine from the market. The Gaja Winery currently owns 250 acres of vineyards situated in the Barbaresco and Barolo area. Shop
