On behalf of Terlato Wines and the Gaja family, we are excited to share that Gaia and Giovanni Gaja has hand-selected south Florida’s iconic Italian restaurant, CASA D’ANGELO, as the 2018 GAJA Grand Award of Excellence Winner! Casa D’Angelo was nominated by Florida’s Brand Ambassador, Franco Balzano, and has been chosen because of their serious breadth and devotion to GAJA, Ca’ Marcanda and Pieve Santa Restituta wines and superior presentation to these items on their wine list.

Casa D’Angelo has won a 3L bottle of GAJA Barbaresco, a framed & signed certificate, feature in the June/July issue of SOMM Journal and be able to have a consumer event hosted by Gaia Gaja!
