One of the pioneers of the modern Greek wine revolution Gaia Estate was established in 1994 by Greek winemakers Leon Karatsalos and Yiannis Paraskevopoulos. Operating two different wineries they make cutting edge wines in both Nemea and Santorini. Gaia's main aim is to present the potential of the indigenous Greek grape varieties to wine enthusiasts worldwide.
The vineyards are located near to Koutsi, a semi-mountainous village. The vineyards here are known for their chalky soils and good drainage. The cool temperatures, the ideal sun exposure and the steep inclination of the vineyards give lower yields than other parts of Nemea, producing berries of excellent concentration.
The grapes were harvested at optimal maturity levels and then underwent traditional vinification. The wine was matured in old French oak casks for 12 months.
