Gaia’s vineyards on the island of Santorini have a typical Mediterranean climate with mild winters followed by warm, windy and dry summers. The vineyards are solely planted with the indigenous Assyrtiko white grape variety on volcanic soil.

Nemea is a wine region in Greece’s Peloponnese and home to the red Agiogitiko grape variety. The winters are cold and humid, and the summers are dry and warm with a significant diurnal temperature variation owing to the high altitude (550m).

Yiannis Paraskevopoulos and Leon Karatsalos are renowned agriculturalists in Greece and produce mineral wines of real typicity in their state-of-the-art wineries. Stainless steel and high-grade French oak are used to craft their wines.
