Gaia Gaja had a wine named in her honor (GAIA & REY Chardonnay) even before she took her first steps. Born in Barbaresco, in Italy's renowned Piedmont region, Gaia Gaja is the fifth generation of her family to work at the GAJA Winery. In addition to her responsibilities in Barbaresco, she travels the globe representing the Gaja family's wine estates- GAJA, Ca' Marcanda and Pieve Santa Restituta.
Gaia graduated with honors from the University of Pavia with a degree in Business Administration. The subject of her thesis was "The Quality and Image of Italian Wines." The eldest of three children of Angelo and Lucia Gaja, Gaia and her sister, Rossana, and brother, Giovanni, live in Barbaresco.
Gaia Gaja takes great pride in her family's rich winemaking heritage but she is not one to rest on the laurels of preceding generations. The new generation of Gajas, led by Gaia Gaja, is determined to make all preceding generations proud.
