  • After 44 years as the main winemaker for Gaja, back in 2014 Guido set up his own winery at his small family estate in Montestefano. In just under four hectares of vineyards, the cantina produces 15,000 bottles, most of which sell out on release. Gaja quality at a fraction of the price = solid gold
