A little about Giovanni:

The 1992 vintage in Langhe was not a good one; “A disaster,” in the words of Angelo Gaja. “We declassified completely.” However, on the heels of disaster, came a blessing. In February 1993 the family welcomed a son, Giovanni. The younger of Giovanni’s two sisters is 12 years older than him, and he jokes that as a child it was like he had three mothers. Growing up in Barbaresco, he loved spending time in the vineyards, and in summers earned €5/hour—money he always saved—helping with the bottling. Building on a degree in economics and management earned at Milan’s Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in 2015, he is shadowing his father at the winery, gleaning wisdom that only Angelo Gaja possesses. He is eager to increase his experience with time abroad, as his sister Gaia has been doing for over a decade. Beginning in 2017, Giovanni spent a year as a fine-wine specialist in New York City and returned permanently to Barbaresco in 2018. As a member of the fifth generation, he will help guide the family winery—founded a century and a half ago by his great-great-grandfather Giovanni Gaja—into the future.
