Gaja Dinner @ Lighthouse
The Lighthouse

The IWFS celebrates the 150th anniversary of the Gaja Winery with an outstanding selection of his famous Barbarescos and Barolo. The Barbaresco is one of Italy's great red wines, produced from Nebbiolo grapes grown in the Langhe area of Piedmont. The wine takes its name from the village of its origin. The Gaja family purchased grapes from Serralunga for their Barolo until 1961, when they decided to produce only from estate-owned vineyards. In 1988, they acquired the vineyard in one of Serralunga's best areas and named it "Sperss", which is Piedmontese for "nostalgia."

We are fortunate to have obtained a selection of these extremely valuable wines and are pleased to pair it with the refined and modern Italian cuisine of the Lighthouse at the Fullerton Hotel, helmed by its young but talented chef, Diego Martinelli. A night of exceptional wines and food coupled with the panoramic view of Singapore’s harbour, this is an event not to be missed. To thank members for their support this past year, members will be given priority for this event and reservation for guests will be confirmed only 48 hours after this email is sent out.

The Gaja Winery was founded by Giovanni Gaja in 1859 and has been owned and operated by four generations of the Gaja family. The Winery's current owner, Angelo Gaja, owner and president of the Gaja Winery, is a fourth-generation Piedmontese winemaker. Internationally acknowledged as one of Italy's and the world's greatest winemakers, Angelo Gaja has been responsible for bold innovations in the vineyards and the cellars. Among his innovations in Piedmontese winemaking are the use of barriques (225-liter French oak barrels) for aging wines and his plantings of the region's first Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard of the 20th century as well as its first Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc vineyards.
Angelo Gaja is known for producing elegant, opulent wines that are true to their origins. He is a pioneer in the production of single-vineyard wines in Piedmont. The quality of his wines is such that they have been described by Wine Spectator, a leading consumer wine publication, as "perhaps the finest Italian wines ever made."

The Society thus celebrates the 150th anniversary of the Gaja winery by proudly ….
