Settling in Piedmont, northwest Italy, in the mid-17th century, the family has been growing vines and making wines in the Langhe hills ever since. More recent adventures have led to Tuscany and the medieval and romantic village of Montalcino and to Bolgheri on the western coast.
The beautiful village of Barbaresco is home to Gaja. In Piedmont the vineyards extend over 96ha in the Barbaresco district (Barbaresco and Treiso), and in the Barolo district (Serralunga d’Alba and La Morra). Further south in Tuscany their Pieve Santa Restituta estate in Montalcino covers some 27ha of vineyard and by the coast, in Bolgheri, plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah and Sangiovese extend to some 126ha.
