在这一合作框架下，赏源风土研究院意大利伟大风土葡萄酒高级认证课程（GTW 3 IT）中成绩最优秀的学生，将有机会在GAJA嘉雅酒庄位于巴巴莱斯科的一个卓越酒庄内进行一段时间的实习。
在赏源风土研究院开办的意大利伟大风土葡萄酒高级认证课程（GTW 3 IT）中取得成绩前三名的优秀毕业生，将有机会在这个久负盛名、世界知名的意大利葡萄酒家族中进行深造。候选人需通过高级认证的三部分考试并参加GAJA团队的面试，以评估他们在酿酒相关领域的知识水平。如果GAJA团队认为合适，候选人将有机会在GAJA的不同酒庄轮换进行为期两个月（从2022年8月25日至10月25日）的学习与研究。
Gaia Gaja是Angelo Gaja的长女，现在正追随她父亲的脚步，就如同她父亲追随爷爷Giovanni的脚步一样，将GAJA嘉雅酒庄打造成了葡萄酒世界醉闪亮和醉有意义的灯塔之一。她坚信教育是葡萄酒未来的根基，因此开展了这项旨在推广葡萄酒知识和文化的合作。事实上，Gaia Gaja已在赏源首届意大利葡萄酒高级课程中贡献了长达2个半小时的讲座，题为《Gaia Gaja对朗格的看法：过去、现在和未来》，并大获成功。
GAJA嘉雅酒庄是意大利最重要的葡萄酒家族和全球知名的酒庄之一，于1859年由Giovanni Gaja（酒庄现任庄主Angelo Gaja的曾祖父）创立，目前主要由Angelo的孩子Gaia、Rosanna和Giovanni经营，他们代表了GAJA家族的第五代传人。家族生产的优质葡萄酒受到全球各地葡萄酒收藏家和爱好者的追捧，有多款满分葡萄酒在此诞生。
尽管家族长久以来都与巴巴莱斯科小镇联系在一起，但随着时间推移，其葡萄酒业务已经扩展到意大利其他地区。1994年，GAJA买下了位于Montalcino的Pieve Santa Restituta庄园，并在那里生产了三款Brunello di Montalcino葡萄酒。1996年，GAJA收购了第二个位于托斯卡纳的庄园——Ca' Marcanda，位于同样著名的Bolgheri产区。最近，家族来到了西西里岛，在那里合作酿造埃特纳葡萄酒，并在皮埃蒙特的上朗格地区购买了葡萄园。

TasteSpirit's TerroirSenseWine Academy is both pleased and honoured to announce a collaboration with Italy's ground-breaking, world-class GAJA wine estate. Thanks to thisagreement, the best students of the TerroirSense Wine Academy’s Advanced course on Italian wines will have the opportunity to do a stage/internship at Gaja's exceptional winery in Barbaresco. As with the Academy's other prestigious collaborations, such as the one in place with the three Michelin star DA VITTORIO restaurant and the Cerea family, this activity is specifically designed to help talented young wine professionals who are passionate about and highly committed to their craft advance in their chosen career paths.
Ian D'Agata, TerroirSense Wine Academy President and Scientific director, said that "The Gaja family is one of the world's most famous wine families whose role back in the 1960s and 1970s was integral, and has been recognized universally as such, in spurring and fostering the renaissance of Italian wine. Not just its wines but the entire Gaja wine philosophy and operation are rightly considered the standard by which many others can be judged by. As Gaia Gaja made clear to me, at Gaja they do not normally accept internship requests, and so I am extremely grateful to the family that they will do so in this case; and I am even more pleased that our students will have the opportunity to learn at such a quality-driven, benchmark estate. This strategic collaboration is but one more example of our Academy's commitment to promoting a true culture of terroir amongst wine and food professionals by cooperating and working with the world's best wine and food institutions increating a unique learning environment for its students unlike that of any other wine teaching institution”.
The top three graduates of the TerroirSense Wine Academy's Great Terroir Wines Advanced level course on Italian Wines (GTW 3 IT) will have the opportunity to do a stage at one of the many different wineries of the prestigious, world-renowned Italian wine family. Candidates will have to pass the Advanced level's three-part exam and hold an interview with the Gaja staff to determine their exact level of winery-related knowledge; if deemed suitable by the Gaja team,the candidate will be offered a two-month (from August 25th to October 25th, 2022) longlearning/study stage at Gaja’s Estates in rotation.
Gaia Gaja, the eldest daughter of Angelo Gaja and now following in his footsteps, just like her father followed in the footsteps of his own father Giovanni and essentially turned the Gaja estate into one of the wine world's brightest and most meaningful lights, also believes that education is fundamental to the future of wine and therefore undertakes this collaboration aimed at promoting wine knowledge and culture. In fact, Gaia Gaja has already given a two and a half hour lecture titled "Gaia Gaja's take on the Langhe: past, present and future" in the inaugural Advanced course on Italian wines that proved a smashing success.
One of Italy's most important wine families and one of the world's best-known wineries, GAJA was founded in 1859 by Giovanni Gaja (great-grandfatherof Angelo Gaja, the winery's current owner) and is now mostly run by Angelo’schildren, Gaia, Rosanna and Giovanni, who represent the fifth generations of the Gaja family. Though long associated with the town of Barbaresco where the family produces great wines sought after by collectors and wine lovers everywhere (with multiple wines scoring 100 points over the years), in time the family has expanded to other parts of Italy. In 1994, GAJA bought the Pieve Santa Restituta estate in Montalcino, from where it produces three Brunello di Montalcino wines, and then in 1996, acquired a second Tuscan property, Ca' Marcanda,located in the also prestigious Bolgheri denomination. Most recently, the family has branched out to Sicily, where it has entered in a partnership to make Etna wines, and has bought vineyard land in Piedmont's Alta Langa.
