Description

Branded with the sign of ammonite mollusks, the Aegean Sea fossils that whisper the ancient secrets of Greece, Gaia wines has for years been traveling the world promoting the most famous Greek varieties. This has taken place thanks to the passion of its knowledgeable personnel.
Gaia Wines was founded in 1994 by Yiannis Paraskevopoulos, an agriculturalist with a PhD in enology from the University of Bordeaux II, and Leon Karatsalos, an agriculturalist.
Both of them exemplify the Greek way of thinking: traveling and acquiring knowledge and experience – characteristics manifest in the production of their wines, which aims to offer wine lovers worldwide the best possible results.
Our winery is situated on a beach, on the east side of the Aegean island of Santorini, between Kamari and Monolithos settlements. This industrial stone building used to be a tomato factory, built in the beginning of the 1900s. Here, local cherry tomatoes were made into an aromatic tomato purée until the 1970s.
With great joy we have renovated this rare, charming building, giving it new life as a winery. For GAIA, it has been an honor to preserve a piece of our heritage through reclamation of this architectural example of industrialization.
Today, the high-tech equipment and the cutting edge facilities of our winery guarantee contemporary winemaking and ideal conditions for high quality production.
At the same time, in a discrete out-of-the-way vault, we have set up a small oxidization area where we are delighted to produce our rare, sweet, aromatic Assyrtiko vinegar. Small quantities (around 1,500 liters) are bottled annually after five years of ageing in oak barrels in our special cellars.
