wine themed wedding in Castle of Gaja Langhe Piedmont
This month we would love to tell you about a very special wedding we planned at the beginning of September in the heart of Langhe region: Matt and Katie’s wedding.

I met Matt and Katie about one year ago in Alba and I immediately got in my mind the idea of what they were looking for.

When we met they had in their minds a clear idea of their perfect reception venue.
As both of them work in the wine world they are very good fiends of Gaja Wines family and they got the special permission to hire their wonderful castle in Barbaresco for their reception.

A unique occasion!
It was clear since the very beginning the the main theme of the wedding had to be Piemonte Gaja wines!
Starting from this we planned with Katie and Matt every single detail to let them have a perfect event.
