Gaja

Barbaresco would not be the same without Gaja’s iconic reputation. This venerable domaine not only drew worldwide attention to the region, but they have also shown the quality that is attainable not just with Nebbiolo, but with “outside” varieties as well. Their story started over 150 years ago, when Giovanni Gaja founded the winery in 1859 to complement the food in his restaurant. Today, the company is managed by the fourth and fifth generations, Angelo Gaja and his children. Over the years, the Gaja name has grown to represent not only exceptional quality, but unique and intriguing flavors that are unlike any others from the region. The single-vineyards are a blend of Nebbiolo and Barbera, like all the wine produced before the introduction of the DOCG denomination. This denomination was established in 1966, and it is mandatory for the wines to be 100% Nebbiolo. For this reason, he declassified most of his single-vineyard wines and took the denomination of Langhe Nebbiolo DOC instead, in order to reach the specific style he desired. Gaja currently produces a total of twelve different Piemontese wines, as well as, seven Tuscan wines from Montalcino and Bolgheri. ...

Grapes

An aromatic variety that produces some of the world’s most exceptional dry whites as well as some of its greatest dessert wines. As a dry wine, such as Sancerre or Pouilly-Fumé from France’s Loire Valley, it often displays what wine connoisseurs describe as « cat pee on a gooseberry bush » due to its notable grassy characteristics. In New Zealand, its most famous home outside of France, it often displays riper notes of tropical fruits such as mango and passion fruit. While Bordeaux often uses it as the main variety in its white blends, Sauvignon Blanc also works well and is susceptible to noble rot, helping create some of the region’s finest Sauternes. ...

Piedmont

Piedmont

One of the greatest wine regions in the world in terms of wine quality (and its renowned cuisine and white truffles), Piedmont is also home to Slow Food, further indicating how essential both good wine and food are to this northern region. Most vineyards are planted on hillside terraces that rise and descend numerous villages. Its most important grape in terms of quality is Nebbiolo, the moderately thin-skinned variety that is capable of producing lighter coloured, but powerful and spellbinding Barolos and Barbarescos that beautifully accompany much of its unique cuisine. However, numerous other grapes such as Barbera and Dolcetto are also noteworthy. Whites can also be unique and delicious and include floral and peachy Arneis, Chablis-like Gave and the off-dry, semi-sparkling Moscato d’Asti.
