Gaia Wines (Santorini) began production in 1994 with 9,800 bottles of Thalassitis white wine, which quickly became established in Greece and abroad as an example of unique Santorini wines. Today, Gaia operates two wineries: one in Koutsi, Nemea, which is the heart of the company, and one in Exo Gonia, Santorini. About 40% of its production is exported, especially to Europe, North America, Australia and Brazil.
Gaia╬äs goal has been and still remains today to expand and highlight the quality characteristics of the native Greek grape varieties and to achieve their recognition in international markets. By expanding the potential of the Nemea Agiorgitiko and the Santorini Assyrtiko over the years, Gaia has created a line of wines that have earned numerous international distinctions and have won over both Greek and foreign consumers.
The Thalassitis, oak fermented Thalassitis and the Gaia Assyrtiko (Wild Ferment) white wines are made from Assyrtiko grapes, along with five-year-old aged vinegar. The multiple award-winning and internationally recognised Gaia Estate wine is made from the Agiorgitiko variety at the private, 7-hectare vineyard in Koutsi, Nemea. This winery also produces Notios white and red wines, Agiorgitiko14-18h rosé, Gaia Agiorgitiko red, Gaia S red, Ritinitis Nobilis retsina and Anatolikos sweet wine.
