From the vineyard to the table
The story of Gaja began over 300 years ago, when the family moved from Spain to Piedmont. The 1859 is the year of the founding of the Gaja winery, a company that over the years has always been known for its fine wines. The Gaja family has been an innovator in the wine production. Giovanni Gaja, Angelo's father, already in 1937 had created the Gaia label, label where the name was written with a larger font than the name of the wine. This strategy of the brand aims to give greater value to the quality associated with the name of the vineyard rather than the type of wine. But it was only in 1961 that created the farm Gaja winery that has stood out on the market making wine with grapes exclusively owned. From then on begins the ascent the Gaja winery, culminating, finally, with the conquest of international market. It is precisely to address the huge market demands that the company Gaja decided in the mid-nineties to expand their cellar, but instead expand the existing winery in Barbaresco, Angelo Gaja preferred to move to Tuscany and precisely in Pieve S . Returned (1994), near Montalcino, and Ca Marcanda (1996).

The term "Barbaresco" apparently derives from the medieval remember of the invasion of the Saracens, also called Barbary, who frequently visited the area not only to plunder but also to sample the excellent wines that were produced there.
