Gaja (pronounced Guy-ah) Winery was founded in 1859 by Giovanni Gaja, the family having arrived from Spain during the 17th century. Current owner and President Angelo Gaja is the great-grandson of Giovanni Gaja and began his career with the company in 1961 at the age of 21. Angelo was an extensive traveler and learned several wine-making skills during trips to France. He is credited with developing techniques that have revolutionized winemaking in Italy and is known by terms such as "the undisputed king of Barbaresco" and "the man who dragged Piedmont into the modern world." Gaja Barbaresco is considered a status symbol on a par with Château Lafite-Rothschild or Krug.
