    Winemaker Notes

    The grapes for the Monograph Agiorgitiko come from vineyards located on the hills of the Nemea wine region, at an altitude of 1,800ft. The climate is moderately cool at this mid-level elevation, resulting in grapes that are concentrated in flavor with well-developed tannins and balanced acidity.

    A delightful introduction to the Agiorgitiko varietal, this red-purple wine has a fruit-forward,medium bodied palate, ripe with flavors of cherry, pomegranate and a hint of butterscotch.It is easy-going with smooth, soft tannins and a fruity finish.

    This red is an excellent accompaniment to spicy foods and red meat dishes.

    GAIA WINES was founded in 1994 by Leon Karatsalos and Yiannis Paraskevopoulos.

    Thalassitis, a Santorini A.O.C. white wine, inaugurated the company's first appearance, and quickly won a place in the Greek wine market. The 9,800 numbered bottles of Thalassitis in 1994, rapidly rose to more than 100,000 in 1999, all the while maintaining its commitment to quality.

    In 1996 GAIA WINES acquired a private vineyard in Koutsi region of Nemea, along with a perfectly equipped winery of a total capacity of 3.000hl.

    Native the Peloponnese peninsula of Greece, Agioritiko is the star variety here and in fact, the only one permitted to carry the Nemea appellation. While it favors the hot Mediterranean climate of Greece, it performs best in Nemea’s high altitude mountain vineyards between 1,350 to 2,000 feet where fully ripe grapes can also achieve great acidity and structure. Somm Secret—As one of Greece's oldest varieties, wines made from Agioritiko were historically often associated with the half-god Heracules and referred to as the "Blood of Heracles.”
