The Ca'Marcanda estate is located in the famous Bolgheri district in the commune of Castagneto Carducci. Ca'Marcanda is the Piedmontese term for "house of endless negotiations," and it refers to the many hours that Angelo Gaja spent convincing the property's previous owners to sell the estate to him.
