Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer
GAIA Wines was founded in 1994 by Yiannis Paraskevopoulos and Leon Karatsalos with the aim of bringing quality Greek wines to wine enthusiasts around the world. Thalassitis was the first wine produced, which quickly earned itself a reputation both in Greece and abroad as being the bench mark for quality white wine from Santorini.
From the beginning, achieving recognition for indigenous Greek grape varieties has been at the core of the business, which remains a strong focus today. GAIA Wines has created a range of wines over the years that has earned numerous international awards on both the domestic and international markets.
Today, GAIA operates two wineries, one in Koutsi, Nemea, which is the heart of the company, and one in Exo Gonia, Santorini. In line with the company goals, around 40% of production is exported, notably to Europe, North America, Australia and Brazil.
