In 2001, after 25 years of correspondence and discussion between Angelo Gaja and the Terlato family, it was announced that Terlato had become the sole U.S. agent for the wines of Angelo Gaja. Tony commented, “I’ve waited 25 years for this.” Angelo responded, “Was it worth it?” Tony said, “Yes it definitely was.” Of this association, Gaja said: “As we enter a new phase in our evolution, Terlato’s experience in developing markets for leading winemakers from Italy and around the world will help us continue to grow while maintaining our absolute commitment to quality.” For the past 21 years, the Terlato family has represented the GAJA portfolio. This date marks the start of a partnership and friendship between Terlato and the reputable GAJA family. GAJA was responsible for the resurgence of Italian wines and it was a proud moment for the Terlato’s to begin representing one of the world’s most recognized Italian brands. Angelo Gaja later said, “Tony Terlato is a true wine and business visionary,…he played a key role in bringing great wines of the world to the American market…one of the most important figures in the world of wine.”

The centerpiece of the portfolio, GAJA Barbaresco is a testament to the Gaja family’s historic commitment to the appellation and its belief that Barbaresco stands proudly with the great growing regions of the world. The GAJA winery stopped sourcing fruit from other growers in 1961 in order to ensure the utmost quality in its wines. In all, GAJA Barbaresco is produced using grapes grown in 14 vineyards in the villages of Barbaresco and Treiso.
