Enjoy the wines of Angelo Gaja at Barbatella

BarbatellaRavioliAngelo Gaja is one of the giants of the Italian wine world. In fact, it’s not an exaggeration to say that he created the reputation of modern Italian wine.

He joined his family’s winery in in 1961 at the age of 21, after studying both winemaking and economics. At the time, the Gaja winery owned superior vineyard sites in Barbaresco, but the methods employed were traditional and backward. Over the objections of his father, Angelo gradually introduced techniques then regarded as revolutionary: green harvesting, the creation of single vineyard wines, the use of French oak barrels and the planting of international grape varieties such as Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Today, Gaja makes 18 different wines in many different regions of Italy, including their Ca’ Marcanda property in the Maremma region of Bolgheri.

At 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 28, Barbatella restaurant will host a dinner focused on the wines of Ca’ Maranda:
