The Gaja Winery was founded by Giovanni Gaja in 1859 and has been owned and operated by four generations of the Gaja family. Giovanni Gaja was the great-grandfather of Angelo Gaja, the Winerys current owner. In 1994 Gaja acquired its first wine estate in Tuscany, Pieve Santa Restituta in Montalcino. The propertys forty acres of vineyards produce two Brunello di Montalcino wines called Sugarille and Rennina.
In 1996, the Gaja Winery acquired a second property in Tuscany, Ca Marcanda, located in Castagneto Carducci in Bolgheri. Of the propertys 200 acres, 150 have been planted with new vineyards: primarily Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, as well as Cabernet Franc and Syrah.
Currently, the Gaja Winery owns 250 acres of vineyards in Piedmont, located in the Barbaresco district (Barbaresco and Treiso) and the Barolo district (Serralunga di Alba and La Morra).
