KeeperCollection @keepercoll> Gaja says I feel that #Nebbiolo is > understood in the #world like N Europe to Japan and Hong Kong Canada #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaja says quality of #wine keeps improving bc of promising & passionate new generation of producers more confident of wines #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaja says new generation knows tradition and yet more environmentally sensitive and well traveled and educated #SommChat

Thomas Perez @TperezWine: #Gaja is there a new project that we don't know?. Just curious #GajaWinery #sommchat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: @TperezWine Gaja says YES but too early to present - will keep #SommChat informed when we can say more - it is a couple of yrs away!

Thomas Perez @TperezWine: Capito grazie!

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: @TperezWine my father is a dreamer and 76 yrs old & working on a project that will be ready 10 yrs from now! #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Pls describe the profiles of the 3 single vineyard #gaja #barbarescos Costa Russi, Sori Tildin, and Sori San Lorenzo #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaja says Costa Russi always shows > cool climate character, fresher, > floral, w/ pure transparent body #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaja says Costa Russi is like you are in the flowers. It is S facing at the end of a hill so in a cooler spot #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaja says Sori Tildin is warmest spot we have. it shows intense black fruit > botanical not flowery body is > voluptuous & round #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaja says Sori Tildin is salind meaty and like being on the vine in the fruit #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaja says Sori San Lorenzo is like being on the trunk of the vine. #wine w/ > tannin material & more wild minerality #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaja says Lorenzo is perhaps less elegant that Costa Russo and less seductive than Sori Tildin but w/ unique & Complex personality #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: How do you balance personal and professional life while working in a family business? #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaia says Family, #Wine, Business 4 me is same thing very focused on this perhaps little bit unbalanced 4 other pers. life aspects #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaia says there is always space for improvement and more balance is part of NY intentions #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: What changes, if any, do you anticipate in the #wine industry in the coming years? #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaia says In last 15 yrs focused on climate chg. sometimes considered political topic in our work we depend on weather everyday #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaia says I can state that in last 20 yrs weather has changed quite a lot becoming > unpredictable in general > warmer vintages #SOmmChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaia -in a way that is good thing bc can release #wines made fr ripe grapes but think global warming is putting elegance in danger #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaia says in last 15 yrs completely changed way we work in #vineyards forecast we will have to continue to focus on that #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaia forecast > foreign investors in region bc they R interested in pearls/gems/treasures and #Italy has many #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaia also forecasts that they are many #Italy small denominations that will out and be very lovely additions to the #wine world #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaia #SommChat #Somm wants to know what R UR largest US mkts & where will you grow in US in 2017?

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaia says #NY #Calif & #Texas #Nevada #Minnesota are large mkts #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaia can you tell main differences bw wines in #Barabaresco and #barolo #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaia says Nebbiolo fr #Barbaresco is generally >floral, open earlier on nose, relatively softer on tannins as compared to #Barolo #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaia says #Barbaresco is like a lady... a tough lady #Barolo generally soil is > compact & #wine is more compact, closed, austere #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaia says #Barolo is more like a man... A gentleman #SommChat

Thomas Perez @TperezWine: #Gaja your #wines are legendary. The Vineyars are so unique, how difficult is it to keep the style w/ climate changes #sommchat #GajaWinery

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: @TperezWine Gaia says we have been changing #Vineyard $ cellar mgt 2 keep the #wines as they have been #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: @TperezWine Today we have to pay attention & focus to different aspects than in the past #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: @TperezWine in past we had struggles w/ ripeness, today comes > easily 2day we have 2 focus on drink ability & freshness #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaia #SommChat #Somm can you share about 2016 vintage?

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaia says too early to tell but grapes very promising good acidity, mod alc, bunches & berries were small with thick skin #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaia says 40 cold & dry days of harvest reached full ripeness great hope for #wines with Gr8 structure and lots of aromatic aromas #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaia says in malolatic right now will know more in early 2017 #SommChat

Sandy Wasserman CS @SandyWasserman: I can't seem to get on track nowadays w/ #SommChat as Im easily distracted. Maybe a fresh start in 2017 will help. Happy holidays everybody

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: @SandyWasserman same to you #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaia can you tell us about your namesake #Chardonnay #wine #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaia says at beginning was a gamble 4 my father thought climate soil in Langhe could work well 4 making long aging white #wines #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: as #wines had proved they can give gr8 agable red #wine why not white? suggest that U drink Gaia & Rey w/ at least 4-5 yrs age #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaia says this white wine with age gives off mushrooms tar roots & perfume if U find an older vintage don't be afraid try it #SommChat

DLynn Proctor @WineauxDLynnP: .@keepercoll I'm only here to say hello to my longgggggg time friend Gaia. Catch you soon and keep rocking. #Piemonte #legend #sommchat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: #SommChat #Somm 4 #Barolo & #Barbaresco what R UR drinking windows Gaia?

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaia says love them really young < 5yrs old then when btw 5&10 yrs go thru puberty can have attitude not always performing #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Gaia but when they reach 10 yrs of age, have very long peak that can last depending on vintage btw 15 and 50 more yrs #SommChat
