Podcast: With Giovanni Gaja

This is my first podcast and it feels great to start with the new generation of the Gaja winery, Giovanni Gaja. It is always a privilege to be given the chance to dive into the world of Gaja; to understand the numerous factors that have contributed to its success and to realise that nothing has been left to chance. It is a product of hard work and of the obsession to be different.  

This took place in Athens, at Faidon's in Voula, where we discussed some key things such as: 

  • The need, or not, for a great story in the world of wine
  • The impact of climate change on Gaja's viticultural practices
  • The old vines debate
  • The trend for more elegant wines, which I call the 'pinotnoirization' of wine
  • The battles between modernism and traditionalism; international and indigenous; new oak or botti.
  • The importance of branding and packaging design
  • The role of 'influencers'

Hope you enjoy it and stay tuned for the next one. 

* The wines of Gaja are imported in Greece by Cava Halaris Cordis.
