2020 Gaia Monograph Assyrtiko
Gaia Wines was founded by Yiannis Paraskevopoulos, who originally studied Oenology in Bordeaux. He returned home along with his business partner, Leon Karatsalos, who studied Agriculture; and they both turned their attention to native Greek varietals and planted vineyards in Nemea and Santorini. The pair has played an important role in revitalising the ancient wine regions of Greece and introducing native Greek varieties to the world stage. The Assyrtiko variety, in particular, comes from the semi-mountainous region of Koutsi, Nemea, in the country's north east; although it is native to Santorini. Bright and refreshing, the perfect drop to be enjoyed with some grilled seafood and hopefully some precious autumn sunshine.
