Gaia Nychteri
2020 | Santorini, Cyclades

Gaia Nychteri

For many enthusiasts, the Assyrtiko grape symbolizes Greece. A sip of the incredibly fresh wine and wander off to a sunny terrace on the Aegean Sea. Nevertheless, winery Gaia decided to take a completely different approach. Their Gaia Nychteri shows that this grape has much more to offer. Because he best grapes from their vineyard on Santorini get a French touch. Firstly they mature in oak barrels from Burgundy and after in southern French acacia wood barrels. It results in a more layered assyrtiko. Of course with the characteristic freshness and minerals, but also a lot of vanilla due to the wood-aging. A must try for assyrtiko lovers.

About the winemakers

The two wanderlust and studious Yiannis Paraskevopoulos and Leon Karatsalos established winehouse Gaia in the year 1994. Their goal was to serve every wine enthusiast worldwide with the best wines of Greek soil. To make this work they developed winehouse’s in the most important vineyard regions in Greece: Santorini and Nemea. On the island Santorini lies a winehouse near the beach in a beautiful industrial building from the 18 century where cherry tomatoes were being turned to tomato puree. Now the building is being used in a mix of old characteristics and high-tech modern appliances to make delicious wine. The winehouse in Nemea lies in the heart of the vineyard in Koutsi at approximately 550 metres above sea level. On the top of a mountain. With the beautiful view on the great plains of Nemea and the valley of the Asopos river.
