The Gaja family settled in the Piedmont region in northwest Italy in the mid-seventeenth century. 1859, the year Giovanni Gaja, a local grape grower, founded the Gaja Winery in Barbaresco. Angelo Gaja represent the fourth generation of the Gaja family, who joined the winery in 1961 and combined his respect for the traditions of the Langhe with bold innovations in the vineyards and the cellars. In 1996, Angelo Gaja purchased a second property in Tuscany "Ca'Marcanda", located in the Bolgheri district in the commune of Castagneto Carducci. New planting of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon as well as Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Sangiovese cover 250 acres. The wines produced at Ca'Marcanda are Promis, Magari and Camarcanda.
