Angelo Gaja was born in Alba in 1940 and today runs the family business in the fourth generation. He is one of the most important wine producers worldwide and is known for his elegant and opulent wines. He was a pioneer in Piedmont for the vinification of single vineyard sites and the subsequent ageing of the wines in barriques. Already more than 20 times he succeeded in achieving the famous "tre bicchieri" awards of Gambero Rosso.
His pomace is exclusively processed by the local Distilleria del Barbaresco into fine grappa.
