Winemaker Notes

Retsina is the traditional wine of Greece since antiquity. It has its own unique style due to the addition of a quantity of resin from the pine tree "Pinus Halepensis" during fermentation. Therefore, the European wine legislation has recognized it as a wine with "Traditional Appellation" that can only be produced in Greece. Though, Retsina, in the past, had been connected with bad, oxidised and resin overdosed wines that many tourists had faced during their holidays in Greece. We decided to create a "new wave" style Retsina, Ritinitis Nobilis, in order to redefine and reposition the quality context of the traditional wine of our country.

We produce Ritinitis Nobilis using modern winemaking technology and by adding a very carefully calculated quantity of resin from pine tree into fermenting must from selected grapes of Roditis variety that grow on the hills surrounding Corinth in Peloponnese. The result is an elegant and refreshing wine with perfect balance between pine and grapes. Ritinitis Nobilis is a delightful partner of Greek "mezedes" and Spanish tapas and is best enjoyed at approximately 8º-10ºC.

Wine & Spirits
Yiannis Paraskevopoulos uses roditis instead of the more typical savatiano for his Retsina, sourcing his fruit from a vineyard at 3,280 feet in altitude. That elevation makes for a vibrantly fresh, crisp wine, all lemon zest and fresh-cut herb flavor. The pine resin is an extra breath of fresh air, a high-toned note with a colling effect that recalls mastikha, while a seashell minerality holds the wine firm. Strident and original, it's delicious with tyropita, Greek cheese pies.

Image of winery
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.

Other Peloponnese

View all wine

A large southern region of Greece, the Peloponnese contains the famous appellations of Nemea and Mantineia. While connected to the mainland by a tiny strip of land, essentially the region is a large Mediterranean island and excels in the production of red wine from Agiorghitiko, white from Moscofilero and sweet wine from the Mavrodaphne grape.

Other White Wine

Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of white grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal, Spain, Italy and Greece are known for having a multitude of unique varieties but they can really be found in any region.
