ANGELO GAJA

The Gaja winery was founded in the Piemonte region of northern Italy in 1859 by Giovanni Gaja, and it has been family owned and operated for four generations in a constantly evolving arc of inspired winemaking.

Current patriarch, Angelo Gaja, started a revolution in the area following several trips to France, and is credited with taking both Barbaresco and Barolo into new stylistic areas, more often than not through controversial measures. Foremost is his use of oak barriques to soften the Nebbiolo tannins and produce a richer, more concentrated wine than the traditional model. Temperature-controlled fermentation, green harvest, reduction of crop size and the introduction of French varieties have all contributed to his modernist reputation and the soaring international praise for the Gaja wines.

Wine Spectator proclaimed his 1985 Barbarescos ‘the finest wines ever made in Italy.’ With Angelo now past 70, his daughters Gaia and Rossana run the estate, although, it has to be said, the man himself has never officially retired.

Angelo Gaja

Named for his grandfather, the son of winery founder Giovanni Gaja, Angelo Gaja began working at the family winery in 1961 after completing studies in enology at Alba and Montpellier. (He would later earn a degree in economics at the University of Turin.) An indefatigable traveller, Angelo often credits his importing business — which gave him unprecedented access in his visits to wineries — for his expansive knowledge of the world of winemaking. Inspired by contemporary and traditional winemaking approaches in France, in the 1960s he began to apply his experiences to the family winery. He introduced barrique aging, hybrid French bottle formats and longer corks, and clonal and massal selection in the vineyard. In the process, he single-handedly established Barbaresco as one of the great appellations of the world. His electric, charismatic presence and often poetical ruminations on the nature of fine wine make him one of the most respected and beloved figures in the wine industry today.

THE LEGENDARY GAJA SINGLE VINEYARDS

The Gaja winery was founded in the Piemonte region of northern Italy in 1859 by Giovanni Gaja, and it has been family owned and operated for four generations, in a constantly evolving arc of inspired winemaking. For the last 50 years, Angelo Gaja has been one of the most renowned producers in the world, having started a revolution in quality in both Barbaresco and Barolo. He has also been one of the most controversial personalities in the region, with his unconvential winemaking methods, defying of the appellation rules, alternative names for traditional vineyards, and plantings of international varieties. Tonight our Fine Wine Manager Regan McCaffery, will be presenting one of the finest lineups of GAJA ever shown in New Zealand. We will be focusing on his legendary single vineyard bottlings of Piedmonte, from the stunning 2013 vintage. With Angelo's daughters taking over the Estate there is a change in attitude, and we see this vintage designated as Barolo and Barbaresco for the first time in 20 years.

We will be tasting, GAJA Sito Moresco 2014, Darmagi 2013, Conteisa Barolo 2013, Sperss Barolo 2013, Barbaresco 2014, Costa Russi Barbaresco 2013, Sori Tilden Barbaresco 2013, Sori San Lorenzo Barbaresco 2013.

As a special treat, we will also be joined by the team from Well Hung Artisan Butchery in Milford who specialise in long dry aging. They will be showcasing some special cuts of their premium dry aged meat to match with these wines.
