Winemaker Notes

Thalassitis is produced from Santorini’s indigenous white grape variety, Assyrtiko. It is one of the only varieties in the Mediterranean that manages to combine full maturity of grapes with considerably high acidity, despite the specific climatic conditions of the island. This fact is an essential factor for accomplishing flavor balance in dry white wines.

Enjoy with seafood, fish, shellfish or even lamb stewed in lemon sauce, generally with flavors of moderate intensity.

Wine Enthusiast
Lemon pulp and orange rind aromas start this robust but elegant Assyrtiko from Gai’a. It offers zippy minerality and fresh fruit flavors in a clean and balanced package, with the characteristic smoke and saline edge from its Santorini terroir.

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.

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.
