A crisp, dry white from the idyllic island of Santorini
The wines of Greece have seen an upsurge in quality over the last few years with the days of taverna Retsina thankfully over. At the forefront of this renaissance are the white wines from Santorini made from its native grape Assyrtiko.
Gaia Wines first released their Santorini wine in 1994 and it has continued to develop in terms of quality since then. The volcanic soils of the island are ideal for grape production and give the Assyrtiko its classic mineral character. The vines used are over 80 years old which also gives the wine greater intensity.
